The Porsche 911 Carrera 2.7 MFI Coupe was introduced in 1974 on the new G-Series chassis that was built to appease ever stricter US regulations for crash worthiness. The floor pans were strengthened, lighting was improved and larger bumpers incorporated. With an impressive 210 bhp, 2,687 cc Type 911/83 air-cooled horizontally opposed six-cylinder engine with Bosch mechanical fuel injection, 0-60 was achieved in just over 5 seconds and gearing was good for 150mph through a 5-speed manual transmission. The suspension was fully independent with torsion bars, McPherson struts and anti roll bars. The total weight was just over 1,075 kilograms, which made the Euro-spec 2.7 MFI a very fast car in its day. In fact, it was the fastest production 911 until the late 1980s. In total, 1,647 Euro-spec MFI Carrera coupes were built during this three year run, along with 631 Targas, with total production figures not vastly outnumbering that of the original 1973 Carrera RS.
First registered in 1975 as a 911 RS Targa and fitted with with 2.7 MFI power unit as used in the iconic 2.7RS of the early 70s, this 911 was subsequently converted some time ago to 911 Turbo specification, fitted with engine number 9301061022R from a later 3.3 Turbo. The car was also converted from Targa to Cabriolet specification, which it wears to this day.
During the last 10 year ownership the 911 benefitted from a large and comprehensive restoration, supported by parts invoices totalling c. £10,000. Finished in Grand Prix white with a black leather interior, and offered with current and older registration papers, current and previous MoT certificates, and a thick file of bills, this is a fantastic opportunity to buy an original 2.7 RS which can be used as is or converted back to original specification.
