THE PORSCHE CARRERA

Porsche developed a reputation with their Carrera model early on for their surprising performance from their small displacement rear-engine sports and racing cars. These 'giant killers' could outperform cars with much higher horsepower figures by making light cars with incredible handling. Referencing Porsche's prowess in the Mexican Carrera Panamericana of the 1950s, Porsche reintroduced the title 'Carrera' in 1973 on the iconic Carrera RS 2.7. In 1974, a Carrera model debuted using a similar 2.7-liter engine, flared fenders, 'ducktail' rear spoiler and bold graphics. 1975 introduced the 'whale tail' spoiler to the Carrera, an unmistakable look used until 1988. While the 390 US-market cars used the same engine as the Carrera S, they retained the widened arches, bold graphics and 'whale tail' of their European counterparts.


THE MOTORCAR OFFERED

This stunning Carrera, built in November of 1974 for the US Market, is believed to have covered fewer than 47,000 miles since new. According to its Certificate of Authenticity, this particular example was specified with a sunroof, Koni shock absorbers, and Silver Metallic paint (Z2) over a Black leather interior (66), the same combination it bares today.

At some point, this Carrera was carefully repainted in its original Silver Metallic and remains in beautiful condition. The original matte-black Fuchs rims are in great condition, along with the spartan trim. Inside, the original black leather interior possesses a great patina. Additionally, this excellent sunroof coupe is fitted with model-correct sports seats for added support during spirited driving.

Offered with a Porsche Certificate of Authenticity, this numbers-matching example of Porsche's rare Carrera is in great condition throughout and presents a great opportunity to acquire a wonderful example with a desirable sunroof, Metallic Silver paint, and sport seats.
