1974 Porsche 911 Carrera 2.7 Coupe

First we looked at the Targa and now we will have a look at the Coupe. This Carrera epitomizes almost everything I enjoy about the style of ’70s cars. The color (Bitter Chocolate with Gold accents), the Cinnamon interior, the ducktail spoiler, and just the general feeling conveyed by this car fits so well. I even like the slightly chunkier looking tires. This 911 is period correct in all the right ways. Like the Carrera 2.7 Targa featured before it, this Carrera 2.7 Coupe, located in Alabama with 89,476 miles on it, won’t come cheaply, but it definitely presents as a rare and unique color combination that when maintained well should garner plenty of attention wherever it goes and show nice value as well.

The bidding here should give us a better sense of what to expect from the Targa. This auction currently sits at $70,000 with reserve unmet and while the overall condition probably isn’t as exceptional as the Targa, its general status as a Coupe and the more period-correct color palette would lead me to suspect that these two cars’ values should not be too far from one another. The Bitter Chocolate over Gold exterior looks really nice, as would be expected from a car recently resprayed, but the interior looks like it could use some freshening up so as to match the condition of the exterior. There do not appear to be any egregious faults so there’s certainly a good bit of potential here. Without a significant rise in bidding I wouldn’t expect this auction to result in a sale, but I’d imagine there should be enough interest that an accord can be reached on the asking price.
