1974 Bahama Blue Carrera

Description from the seller:

Collectors and Porsche enthusiasts looking for the next air-cooled Porsche classic would be wise to check the less well-known, limited run Euro Carrera 2.7 MFI model. Porsche continued to extend the homologation of the legendary 1973 Carrera RS by introducing the Euro Carrera 2.7 MFI (mechanical fuel injection) model in 1974, thus having the same performance characteristics of the collectible 1973 Carrera RS.

With this model, Porsche wished to continue using the classic 2.7 MFI engine, which eventually grew into the powerful 2.8 MFI engine (308 HP) for the full race 911 RSR. However, U.S. pollution standards became even more stringent and Porsche could not certify the MFI system for the U.S. market. Instead, this model was made available only to European and Rest of World (ROW) markets in a limited run. Thus the same 2.7 Carrera RS engine and transmission from the 1973 version were fitted to the Euro G series short hood body.

All of the performance and chassis reinforcement modifications from the Carrera RS were carried over to the 1974 model, including Carrera flares with their distinctive shape and the iconic duck tail spoiler. Curb weight was comparable to the 1973 Carrera RS Touring model as well as an identical 0 – 60 MPH time of 5.5 seconds.

The 1974 Euro Carrera MFI RS presented here has been completely restored to a very high and correct standard. The car drives perfectly and looks wonderful. The beautiful and rare color of Bahama Blue (AKA Acid Blue) is one of four cars produced for the 1974 MY. Only 1026 coupes were made in 1974.

This car was restored with a correct RS Type 911/83 engine case with the proper RS MFI (019 pump) and S camshafts that make the RS engine unique and special. Note: The current RS spec engine isn’t the original case per the Kardex. However, the original matching numbers engine case has since been located and will be included with the car to insure documented collectability (engine case has been thoroughly cleaned and inspected).
