Description by the seller:

Many automotive authorities including Keith Martin of Sports Car Market have discussed how the ’74 Euro Carreras are hidden collectibles. These are undervalued special cars.

These cars were essentially a 1973 Porsche RS with some different bumpers and different seats. Other than that, they were exactly the same. However, they were never imported to the U.S. due to new emission standards. These are not the same cars that were delivered to the U.S.. Instead, they came with the same engine (911/83 2.7 MFI 210hp) that came in the famous ’73 RS. And, all the other mechanicals including transmission, suspension, and brakes were directly from the ’73 RS parts bin. The wheels are correct RS Fuchs with 7x15 in front and 8x15 in the rear.

With the same weight and horsepower as well as a low production number of 1,026 coupes, the 1974 Euro Carrera is virtually the same car as the coveted ’73 RS…except; it is less than 1/3 of the price!

I’ve been fortunate to experience a few of these rare Porsches over the years and must say that this car is by far the best example I have seen. It is a beautiful car that is ready to be driven or shown at your local Porsche concours. The paint is fantastic as is the interior with no noticeable blemishes. The wheels are correctly finished and wear new correct Pirelli P6000 tires. This car is truly stunning as well as an absolute blast to drive.

Recently, TLG auto performed a valve adjustment and service and they said that this was one of the best driving 911s they had ever experienced. Harvey Weidman restored the wheels.

This car was delivered without a ducktail but a no-tail plain steel engine cover. The current owner had a ducktail installed. We believe the original engine cover is available.

The car was imported from Italy in 2001 by a well-known Porsche mechanic/restorer in Vermont. This was his personal car and he absolutely loved it. He too said that it was one of the tightest driving early 911s he had experienced. He attributes this to the fact that the car was never in an accident or hammered. Unfortunately, shortly after he brought it into the U.S., he needed some money and sold it to a collector in Oxnard, CA who simply stored the car until the current owner purchased the car in 2006. The car has been lightly driven for a few Porsche events and properly maintained.

This Carrera includes the original tool kit, spare, jack, and certificate of authenticity,
