THE 911 CARRERA COUPE

The legendary Porsche 911 Carrera RS 2.7 of 1973 resulted from the factory's realization that the weight of its top-of-the-range 2.4-liter 911S production model restricted its development potential for racing. Therefore, it was decided to produce and homologate a special lightweight variant for competition purposes. The result was the 1973 Carrera RS (RennSport).

When the homologation targets had been met, the lightweight RS was discontinued but the Carrera name continued on Porsche's top-of-the-range model, which in its new, series-production 911-form mounted the 2.7-liter in a fully trimmed body shell. Later the 911 Carrera received the 3.0-liter engine with a significant boost in horsepower and torque.


THE MOTORCAR OFFERED

According to the Porsche-issued COA, this 911 was completed at the Zuffenhausen-based Porsche plant in January of 1977, and built for the Belgian market, thus fitted with the desirable 5-speed manual transaxle, a center console and the iconic rear spoiler. Finished in the rare color of Copper Brown Metallic and trimmed in a Cork leather interior, this Carrera looks just like one would expect for a late 1970s Porsche. The car was ordered with the sunroof delete option and instead an air-conditioning unit was installed.

Delivered new to Brussels, this 911 was later exported to the US when a Mr. Frank Schilling of New Jersey took ownership; he is believed to have been the car's second owner. After Mr. Schilling received the Euro Carrera, it was federalized so it could legally be driven and enjoyed. Later, and with very limited use, the Carrera passed on from Mr. Schilling to the California-based consigner. At the time of acquisition, the car's odometer read just 75,000 kilometers (46,000 miles).

Offered with tools, an owner's manual, service books and the Porsche-issued COA, this rare Euro Carrera presents in very original and well-maintained condition. The odometer, which reads just shy of 81,000 kilometers (51,000 miles), is indeed believed to be the car's original mileage. A rarity, this numbers matching Carrera 3.0 is certainly ready to be enjoyed by its next caretaker.
