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
Finished in the perfect 1970s shade of Blood Orange with contrasting black leather interior, this highly underrated 911 now provides excellent value in the current market.
Described as being in good condition in all respects, the RHD 1977 model 2.7S you see here was repatriated back into the UK on 18th of July 1989 and subsequently underwent a restoration that finished in 2015.
