The '74-'76 Carrera 2.7 MFI were effectively built as a continuation of the '73 Carrera 2.7 RS Touring (M472) platform since Porsche replaced the '73 Carrera RS Sport (M471) by building 114 of the 3.0-liter Carrera RS/RSR models only in 1974.

Unlike the G-series Carrera delivered to North America the rest-of-world Carrera 2.7 MFI continued to pack a serious punch with the RS-spec 911/83 mechanically fuel injected engine providing the driver with an extremely visceral experience behind the wheel. The added weight of the impact bumpers and G-series interior refresh ultimately was offset with lighter weight engineering improvements such as the aluminum banana arms instead of the previous heavy steel versions. This meant the Carrera 2.7 weighed the same 2,370 lbs (1,075 kg) as the outgoing '73 RS Touring model. Starting in the 1976 Porsche's desire to create 911 models that were attractive to the masses meant inclusion of ever more luxurious and heavier options as standard. Ultimately this extra weight meant after production of the Carrera 2.7 MFI ceased in 1976 there wasn't a faster normally aspirated street 911 offered until the European spec 1988 Club Sport (CS) arrived on the scene.

The Carrera on offer – chassis no. 911 560 0179 – was the 169th produced of 508 rest-of-world Carrera 2.7 MFI coupes delivered from the factory in 1975. Invoiced October 1974 by Glöckler in Frankfurt, Germany this Carrera was originally optioned as a true driver's 911. Factory options include black leatherette, Twill/Shetland Sport seats, extended hub Sport steering wheel, front spoiler and whaletail, Carrera side script, impact absorbing bumper shocks, and intermittent wipers.

Over 2” of detailed service documentation exists since the mid-1990s while the Carrera was still in the Netherlands. The engine was replaced with a correct type 911/83 engine and rebuilt in 1998 by Autobedrijf Motron with Dilivar studs, upgraded tensioners, and other standard improvements. After being subsequently imported into the United States in 2002 the Carrera underwent a complete three-year restoration by its then California owner. Completely disassembled and repainted the original Light Yellow (B6 / 117) in December 2005, the paint still holds up extremely well after eight years and approximately 7500 miles. Mechanical refurbishment at this time include rebuilt gearbox, new synchros, new clutch, new brakes, oil lines, along with a large list of nuts, brackets, trim pieces, bolts, seals, windshield, etc. that were replaced during this restoration. All the visual R Gruppe style improvements are easily reversible including dual-out muffler modification, rear valence lightened and modified for dual out muffler, lightweight carpets, RS door panels, later velour style Sport seats inlay, rally mud flaps, green Carrera script, and rear adjustable spring plates. The end result was a visually stunning Carrera which was featured as the cover car in Hemmings Sports & Exotic Car #50 (October 1, 2009) along with a full length feature article.

In 2007 a new owner proceeded with an engine rebuild by Chuck Croteau of Redline Service in Tucson, AZ where the engine was transformed into an even more serious 2.8-liter RS-spec engine built to run on premium gas. This second engine rebuild included all of Redline's standard fair such as new intake/exhaust valves, new valve guides, Web Cam reground camshaft, new timing chain, and Carrera tensioners. With only approximately 12,000 km (7500 miles) since the engine rebuild this is one of the best handling and visceral 911s you can get behind the wheel of.

Additionally, this exciting '75 Carrera 2.7 MFI comes with the original single-grill whaletail, fiberglass ducktail (fitted), and plain decklid all painted to match. Fitted with clear anodized 7J and 8J x 15 Fuchs along with new Toyo RA1 tires mounted 1,500 km (900 miles) ago in mid-2011. The often missing original warm up regulator is still attached to the MFI airbox and new MFI fuel pump recently replaced.. Also included is the correct 1975 German owner's manual and red vinyl pouch, complete tool roll with all the correct tools and jack, as well as the electric air compressor.

Known issues include typical minor cracking of the dashboard near the speaker; a minor discoloration on the front driver's side corner of the hood; and driver seat edge trim waviness due to sun exposure. Ultimately this Carrera MFI 2.7 is extremely well sorted cosmetically and mechanically. This '75 Carrera MFI 2.7 is immediately available for a new owner to carve up the road in one of the most fun and exciting street 911s ever produced.
