After 1973, it was decided that the 2.4 litre wasn’t really fast enough for the 911, with the impending American emissions standards threatening to slow the model down to the point that ordinary Cadillacs would smoke its droopy tail. The solution: to take the 2.7-liter engine developed for the Carrera RS, detune it a bit, and make it standard across the board.
This made the 911 a very usable sports car for all driving conditions. It was only natural that capacity for mainstream production should be increased to 2687cc, which gave a good increase in torque to match the 150 bhp of the 911 2.7 Coupe. Impact bumpers were now required to satisfy American law and production ran from 1974 to 1977.
Finished in Porsche Grand Prix white with a contrasting black leather interior, this highly underrated 911 now provides excellent value in the current market.
Subject to an older restoration, this excellent rare narrow-bodied 1974 model 2.7S is a matching numbers example which is said to perform very well.
With EU customs cleared, and supplied with a service book and US title, what a fun, accessible way to get yourself into the driving seat of a proper 1970s Porsche!
