THE 2.7-LITER 911

The first of countless upgrades to Porsche's perennial 911 came in 1966 with the introduction of the 911S. Easily distinguished by its stylish Fuchs five-spoke alloy wheels, the 'S' featured a heavily revised engine producing 160bhp, the increased urge raised top speed by 10mph to 135mph. A lengthened wheelbase introduced in 1969 improved the 911's handling, and then in 1970 the air-cooled, 'flat six' engine underwent the first of many enlargements - to 2.2 liters.

In 1974, all 911 variants received the 2.7-liter unit, hitherto reserved for the Carrera, when the latter went to 3.0 liters. Coupled to a tolerance of low-lead fuel, 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. The interior and seats were re-designed with more comfortable seats, and the safety-bumpers was successfully integrated, without changing the 911s pure design.

Over the past 40 years few sports cars have proved as versatile as Porsche's legendary 911, a model that has proved equally capable as a Grand Tourer, circuit racer or rally car. Success in the latter role came only a few years after its introduction, when works driver Vic Elford became European Rally Champion in 1967. In the modern era, the 911 has established itself as one of the most popular and successful sports cars and remains nothing short of an automotive icon.


THE MOTORCAR OFFERED

This beautiful Porsche 911 was completed at the Zuffenhausen-based works during December of 1974 as a 1975 model-year 911S 2.7 Targa. Elegantly finished in Off-white exterior with color-coded Fuchs alloy wheels shod Michelin tires, the 911 looks just right with the contrasting stainless-steel Targa roll bar and black Targa top. A 1982 model-year 3.0-Liter SC engine and transaxle has been fitted to give the car extra performance. Factory applied decals can be found throughout the car, and less than 59,000 miles was recorded on odometer at the time of cataloging. A tool kit, jack and a space saver spare tire is located in the luggage compartment. A lovely example of the quintessential 911 Targa, dating back to when the 911 had received many improvements, yet not lost its classic style.
