Porsche 911 Carrera 1975 Model
Porsche 911 Carrera 1975 Model
The original Porsche 911 with its distinctive, and durable design was introduced in autumn 1963 and built through 1989. It was succeeded by a modified version, internally referred to as Porsche 964 but still sold as Porsche 911, as are current models.
In 1974 saw the introduction of impact bumpers to conform to low speed protection requirements of U.S. law, these bumpers being so successfully integrated into the design that they remained unchanged for 15 years. In 1974 the engine size was increased to 2,687 cc, giving an increase in torque.
An additional body style, the Carrera, was added. It used the same 175-hp engine of the 911S, but featured flared rear fenders, wider rear wheels, and a ducktail spoiler first introduced on the Europe-only 1973 Carrera RS 2.7.
1975 required further changes to the engine for emissions purposes, The Carrera was upgraded to a whale tail rear spoiler, and a chin spoiler was added at the front to balance aerodynamic effects.
There are two models that stand out for enthusiasts: the '74-'75 Carrera and the '76-'77 Carrera 3.These 911s marked the first (and at the time controversial) use of the race-bred 'Carrera' title to full production models.
Overall, the 1975 Porsche remained one of the best sports cars in the world. In fact, Road and Track Magazine shared this sentiment, declaring “If an automotive bargain still remains in our inflation-ridden world, the Carrera, or any 1975 911, is it.”
The 2.7-litre engine was at the limit of its development in the mid-1970s and there were a few issues with worn intermediate gears and failing camshaft chain tensioners. The latter became something of an infamous issue for the 911.
The Carrera 3 was the first 911 to use the new 930 engine (as fitted to the Turbo) in normally aspirated (K-Jetronic) form. It can be considered as the forerunner to the 911SC and enjoyed many of the features rolled into the later mode.
The example that we have for sale has had the 2,7 litre motor replaced with a 1976/77 genuine 3,0 litre Carrera Motor. The engine swap was done my RS Autosport and has covered a mere 16000km since. A twin spark ignition system has been added as well.
The interior is all 100 % original and the car retains its original paint and colour combination. A few personalized additions have been added to the car such as the, bumpers and front valance which were sourced from Anton Becker.
The car has its original owner’s manual and a massive documented arch leaver file with all its history. Additionally there are a number of original parts which accommodate the sale of the vehicle such as original impact bumpers, new door panels and a number of various other mechanical parts as well.
Many buyers love the styling of these late 1970's 911’s and either disregard the engine issues or repair or replace the engine. Others purchase 1975 models where this issue has already been addresses. The preference is of course up to you.
