In 1974 all variants of Porsche's 911 sports car received the 2.7-litre engine, hitherto reserved for the Carrera, when the latter went to 3.0 litres. Although in non-Carrera tune the 175bhp (DIN) 2.7-litre unit made slightly less power than the old '2.4', it had been skilfully reworked to produce significantly more torque over a much wider rev range and offered noticeably improved acceleration. Coupled to tolerance of low-lead petrol, vastly superior fuel consumption and increased tank capacity, the new 911 proved superior to its predecessor in every way as a fast, long-distance tourer.

This matching-numbers Porsche 911 Targa retains its original Typ 911/81 engine and was delivered new to Spain complete with the popular semi-skai seats. Currently displaying a believed-correct total of 147,549 kilometres on the odometer, the car remains in its factory colour scheme and retains its original interior and original Porsche wheels. There are photographs on file of an engine rebuild, undertaken 5,000 kilometres ago, together with invoices for parts used. Other maintenance tasks carried out include overhauling the Bosch K-Jetronik fuel injection system and fitting a new clutch. This beautiful 911 Targa comes with its original service booklet, Porsche certificate, Spanish registration papers and technical inspection since 2000.
