Model Information (General):
911 and 911S 2.7 (1973–1977)
Model year 1974 (G Series. Aug. 1973 to July 1974 production to 1977) saw three significant changes. First, the engine size was increased to 2687 cc achieving higher torque. Second, new impact bumpers conformed with low-speed protection requirements of US regulations. Thirdly, the use of K-Jetronic CIS Bosch fuel injection in two of the three models in the line up— the 911 and 911S models, retaining the narrow rear arches of the old 2.4, now had a 2.7-litre engine producing 150 PS (110 kW; 150 hp) and 175 PS (129 kW; 173 hp), respectively.
The engine in the USA Specification Carrera 2.7 is the same engine used in the 911S models. This engine was criticized for having weak head studs and many enthusaists were put off by the K-Jetronic fuel injection system. This earnt the USA 911 Carrera 2.7 and the 911S a lot of negativity in period. Today, these engine issues are typically addressed with new head studs and oil chain tensioners, conversions to MFI or Weber Carburettors… When done this car is bulletproof. In appearance it is reminiscent of the 1970-1973 narrow body 911, but with impact bumpers.
Reviews of build overall build quality and handling were favourable. The engine is what held the mid-1970s 911s back from being a real star.
1975 Porsche 911S“RS”The car on offer here is one of just 200 Porsche 911S manufactured in Gulf blue between 1974-1977. It wassold new in Portland, Oregon and remained there until 2005 when a family based in both the US and Canada purchased the car. The brother in the US sent the car to his brother in Canada. During their ten years of ownership a lot has been done to the car. It was painted and the suspension was upgraded circa 1995 by the Portland OR owner. We were told they intended to vintage race the car, but never did because the paint was so perfect.
When imported to Canada, the owner had the matching numbers engine rebuilt to RS 2.7specification, correcting all of the weaknesses commonly associated with the 911S engines. The case was split and brand new Mahle RS Pistons were installed. Invoices are available for most of the following work. Pistons were balanced and 993 head studs were installed. Weber 40 IDA carbs were installed along with a SSI RS exhaust system. The intake was polished and the cam re-ground to European specs. It has a Carrera front-mounted oil cooler, the oil temperature never exceeds 190 degrees F. It also has the Carrera oil chain tensioner upgrade (very common to do on older 911s). The alternator was replaced with a 75 amp unit (stock is 55 amp). The transimssion was fitted with a lightweight heavy duty racing clutch and lightweight flywheel and filled with Swepco fluid. The suspension was fitted with with Turbo tie-rods, poly bushings and fittings. Torsion bars are 21mm in the front and 21mm in the rear. Ride height was lowered and bump steer corrected. A camber cross brace was installed, tieing together the front shock towers. Wheels are polished 15” Fuchs with new 205/50/15 V Rated tires.
The interior is mostly stock in appearance, with a Momo racing shifter knob, and 200mph speedo from North Hollywood Speedometers. The interior was re-done in 1995 when the car was painted. They installed Gahn leather seats with side bolsters imported from Germany. Modern upgrades are an Alpine AM/FM/CD stereo with Phoenix Gold Amp and a remote door lock system with alarm and starter disconnect. The car comes with some spare parts including a blank piece for the stereo if you wish to remove it.
There are no accidents on record for this 911. The Carproof correlates with the previous owner’s story. This 911S was based in Oregon, briefly in Colorado then with the brothers in Illinois and British Columbia. Cosmetic condition is good, with few signs of age in the paint. Both the passenger and drivers door have some imperfections in the lower part of the outer door. These could be issues with preparation that are showing through. There are no signs of any rust on the car. Engine has a very light oil weep. A new Bosch starter was just installed. Mileages is believed to be correct. We do know the engine was completely rebuilt 11,000 miles ago, as documented with receipts.
The driving experience is very different from a standard 911S. The suspension is very tight, albeit a bit squeaky with the poly bushings and fittings (can be switched back to rubber for around $500). Idle is strong. Acceleration is impressive with very high torque all the way through the range. The clutch is perhaps one of the best we’ve experienced in a vintage car. Shifts are effortless. This would make a great car for vintage racing. We’ve considered some orange “Porsche” stickers down the side as a tribute to the Gulf race cars fo the day. It is also incredibly easy to drive around town. This Gulf blue 911S gets a lot of attention. The previous owner nicknamed her “Baby Blue” and I can see why. It is a conversation car, a great driving car, and a rare factory Gulf blue 911 with matching numbers.
