1974 Porsche 911 CA Carrera #260 Numbers Matching COA Outlaw
I have owned 100’s of Porsches over the last two and half decades, any of them, ndeed most of them midyears (74-77), n the early years because they were the affordable ones, ack when all Porsches were still relatively cheap. Lately, ver the last few years, am drawn to them again. I guess it’s just the familiarity. I know these cars like the back of my hand.
This particular car epitomizes everything I like about these cars. Porsche provided the perfect platform for the hotrod, ustom, acer types to play with, nd then stuck with the design long enough to make them iconic. Being in California, here so many Porsche dealerships were established early on, nd the climate preserved them better than most, have been fortunate to have owned many of the very best air cooled examples. This is likely my 15th or 20th 74 Carrera not counting the same amount of 75 Carreras. Given the 74/75 Carreras are among the lowest production numbers of any model Porsche ever produced, still can’t believe it when I come across the opportunity to purchase another one. With this one, thought, es, t’s numbers matching, nd yes it’s a clean, ell owned rust free CA example that should be restored to original to maximize the ever increasing value…but I wanted to revisit the good old days. And for me, he car has a soul that has taken 40+ years to evolve. To restore this vintage weekend toy would be erasing everything I like most about it. Instead, went all-in with a fast forward/ catching up, n where I think the car would have evolved to if it had not been outgrown, orgotten and to some extent neglecteddue to lackof usein the back of the owners garage where it has more or less hibernated, he last second half of it's life. I have enjoyed this car personally and consider it my 'company car'....selling to build the next one...
.....so here is what we have:
