Footnotes

  • Porsche revived the Carrera name for its luxuriously equipped, top-of-the-range 911 in 1973. Designated Carrera RS, the newcomer was intended as a limited edition product for Group 4 GT racing, a class that required a minimum of 500 built. However, the resulting demand for this fabulous car proved so great that the production run was later extended by 1,000-or-so units. Based on a lightened 911S platform, the Carrera RS featured revised suspension and wider rear wheels (beneath flared wheel arches) for improved handling, while the 2.7-litre, fuel-injected, air-cooled six-cylinder engine's 210bhp boosted top speed to around 150mph. Not merely a styling gimmick, the Carrera's trademark 'duck's tail' spoiler made a vital contribution to high-speed stability, a virtue of increasing importance as power outputs continued to rise. The next major development saw the engine enlarged to 3.0-litres on the RSR racing version in 1974, this unit becoming standard on the road-going Carrera for 1976.

    From 1984 Porsche applied the evocative 'Carrera' title to all 911 models, co-incidentally with the introduction of the 3.2-litre engine. Not merely enlarged, this new power unit was also extensively revised and produced 231bhp, 27 horsepower up on its predecessor. The 911 Carrera's top speed was now 152mph, with 100mph reachable in a breathtaking 13.6 seconds.

    Sold new in the UK, this right-hand drive Carrera exemplifies the original 911 concept in its final, 3.2-litre, 231bhp form, the subsequent Carrera 2/Carrera 4 models being almost entirely new. The current (lady) vendor purchased the car in June 1988 from Bramshaw Motors, Bournemouth. Kept garaged ever since, its is reluctantly offered for sale only on account of the owner's advancing years and ill health. Finished in red with black leather upholstery, this car has the five-speed manual transmission option and comes with its original service booklet, old-style logbook, a quantity of expired MoT certificates, V5 registration document and current MoT. Described by the vendor as in very original but generally good condition, it has covered a mere 40,700 miles from new and has seen relatively little use in recent years.

    Described by the vendor as in very original but generally good condition, it has covered a mere 40,700 miles from new. Having seen relatively little use in recent years, it will require a major service and attention to the cam-covers. Sold strictly as viewed.
