Total 911 Magazine: 2.4S V 2.7 Carrera

On the front cover of Total 911: The Porsche Magazine issue 132 features the article "2.4S V 2.7 Carrera: Which of these top-spec titans offers the best classic drive?"  The latest issue heads to Finland for a head-to-head road trip in a 1973 Porsche 911 2.4S and its impact bumper replacement, the iconic 2.7 Carrera.

The conclusion:

"...the Carrera provided me with much more cosseting, devouring everything that was thrown in its way: the archetypal grand tourer, built for occasions such as this. From behind the wheel of the 2.4 S, I couldn't help but sneak a glance every now and then at the evocative rear end of the Carrera, envious of its talents. For the weekend, I'd have to take the S just for its sheer involvement, but if I've got to live with my £200,000 classic 911, it doesn't get much better than the Carrera 2.7. In fact, scratch that. It doesn't get any better, end of."
