Orange Track Bomber

Update April 25, 2013: This Carrera is listed as sold by Classic Throttle Shop.

Posted April 8, 2013: This orange RHD Carrera (chassis #9114600230) is offered with 23,460 kms on the odometer and the original Australian import tag. Not for the purist, but for someone who wants a very nice track car that originally came from the factory with a 911/83 engine this is one to look at.

Overall it appears to have a very nice "track restoration" that would be a hoot to drive. The interior has been completely redone with non-correct carpets, panels, seat, steering wheel, etc., but it is well done and befits the track focus of the car. The seller states it has been resprayed in "Continental Orange" (paint code 107), but this color wasn't offered in 1974. The only orange colors available were "Orange" (paint code 156) or "Signal Orange" (paint code 116).  "Orange" is very close in shade to "Continental Orange" but not exact. Orange is another one of the great colors for these mid-year Carreras.

My recommendation: Put on your helmet, driving shoes, and go have a blast testing the limits of a beautiful Carrera 2.7. Forget about the picky concours crowd and just have fun. With an optimistic asking price it has been for sale since late last year.

Description from the seller:

This superb 74’ Carrera has benefitted from a full restoration carried out by marque specialists. A complete bare metal respray in Continental Orange its original factory colour. The car is accompanied by a large file of receipts and maintenance records along with a certificate of authenticity from Porsche. Fitted with many period features such as Fuchs wheels and 'Duck Tail' rear spoiler this is a stand out from the crowd car that is sure to please. It is also powered by the highly desirable 210BHP 2.7Litre MFI engine, fully rebuilt by Porsche specialists in Victoria and is a matching numbers car. Also fitted are a rear roll cage, Velo driver seat and period Momo steering wheel. Delivered new in Australia in 1974 this car is still superb both to look at and to drive. Ready for either registration for everyday uses or put it on the track and just enjoy it is in superb condition and drives beautifully. There are few cars that can boast the superb engineering attached to an early 911, the era when this model began the obsession for many enthusiasts for what is arguably the best looking 911 ever made.

Offered for AUD $154,995 (approx. $161k USD).
