In­tro­duced in 1974 and made un­til 1977, the 911 Car­rera 2.7 was man­u­fac­tured in sim­i­lar num­bers to its ear­lier sib­ling, the 2.7 Car­rera RS. Weigh­ing just 1075 kilo­grams and equipped with the 210bhp, 2687cc Type 911/83 air cooled flat-six en­gine, in­cor­po­rat­ing Bosch me­chan­i­cal fuel in­jec­tion, it was the pin­na­cle of the per­for­mance de­riv­a­tives of the G-se­ries chas­sis. To­day, just 21 UK right-hand drive coupés ex­ist on the Car­rera 2.7MFI reg­istry and this one was sup­plied on the 13th Novem­ber 1975 by Swin­ford Mo­tors of Stour­bridge.

The car has been ex­ten­sively re­stored and re­fur­bished by Mark Darby at RS 911, who re­tained all the key orig­i­nal pan­els, with Phil Hind­ley at Tech 9 Mo­tor­sport look­ing after the driv­e­train. The car looks stun­ning in its orig­i­nal Ice Green with black half-leather in­te­rior. Itʼs un­doubt­edly one of the very best ex­am­ples of this rapidly ap­pre­ci­at­ing but still lit­tle un­der­stood car. It can be yours for ʻjustʼ £239,000… Find out more from www.rs911.com or by call­ing Mark on 01686 440323
