1974 Porsche 911

For 1973, orsche realized that they needed to up the ante in order to remain competitive on the racing scene. The rules at that time stipulated that manufacturers had to produce (homologate) a certain number (500) of identical cars for them to be accepted for production car racing. To this end, hey created the Carrera RS (Rennsport) 2.7. This was basically a lightened version of their existing 2.4 litre 911S with a larger 2.7 litre engine. The Carrera name referenced their earlier class victories with the 356 in the Carrera Panamericana races in the 1950s and the RS stood for RennSport (literally, ace sport in German). It was offered in both Lightweight and Touring versions, oth of which were fitted with the now iconic 'Ducktail' spoiler, hich gave it its signature look. Though a one-year only model, n total, 580 were produced and they have become some of the most sought after 911s of all time. Then, or 1974, orsche offered a new top-of-the-range model, he 911 Carrera 2.7. This was essentially identical to the 1973 Carrera RS, hysically, ith the same widened arches and the main difference being the new-for-1974, ederally mandated, mpact bumpers. Even with these however, t still weighed in at exactly the same weight as the RS Touring version (1,075 kg). Ironically, ue to German safety regulations, he trademark 'Ducktail' spoiler from the RS was not permitted on German delivered cars (much to the home crowd's dismay), et strangely, as a fully legal option for Carreras destined for the safety-obsessed US. As a trade, he US versions received the 2.7 litre CIS engine from the then new 911S though (instead of the MFI engine from the RS, n the European version), o please the emissions nazis. They were however, therwise identical. The Carrera 2.7 CIS was built in very limited numbers (only 528 examples ever made) until production ceased in 1976.
The car offered here, s one of only 395 U.S. Carrera coupes ever built and was delivered with many desirable options, ncluding tinted glass, he classic RS 'ducktail' rear spoiler, old Carrera scripts on the doors, oni shock absorbers and a factory sliding steel sunroof. Finished in Black with a Cinnamon Leatherette interior, t is in excellent condition throughout and very strong mechanically, aving just been serviced by a local Porsche specialist.
With Touring versions of the 1973 Carrera RS regularly selling for in excess of $750,000, hese fractionally younger but virtually identical twins currently represent an incredible opportunity to own one of the greatest Porsches built, or a fraction of the cost and with tremendous investment potential.
