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 Cadillac’s would smoke its droopy tail. The solution; to take the 2.7-litre 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 2,687cc, which gave a good increase in torque to match the 165bhp of the 911 2.7 Coupe.
This matching numbers example was delivered new to the US in 1976 in the current specification of Grand Prix White (908-9-2) with an amazing Cognac brown interior, and a sliding sunroof roof.
Showing a sensible 103.600 original miles from new, this beautifully detailed original car
is also huge fun to drive.
