1976 Porsche 911 3.0 Carrera Euro spec

Somewhat unique Porsche here, a Euro 911 3.0 liter Carrera. The average car fan won’t distinguish this from other similar era 911 vehichles, but the Porscheophile will take note of the Euro bumpers and the Carrera 3.0 badge on the trunk. Car comes with Bosch CIS fuel injection and a limited slip diff for better drivability.

101,000 miles show this car was enjoyed. The previous owner was a Porsche mechanic. The seller lists a ton of replaced and rebuilt parts and judging from the fact the photos are taken in a Porsche junkyard I bet I know where many of those parts came from.

This is a nice looking ride with the polished Fuchs alloys setting off the red paint. The $35,000 ask price is probably playing up the rarity of this car a bit much, but hopefully there is some wiggle room in there from the seller.

    Since the speedometer is in KPH only, then would the 101,xxx be kilometers or miles?

    Pic of build plate shows 911SC. If a Carrera, then would it show as that? Are the black rear bumperettes Euro spec?

    Looks to be a nice car but price is kinda on the high end.

    Love your site keep up the diligent postings. Thanks

    Ah, Dr. VonNostrand makes an excellent point. Though the seller states “101,000 miles” one of the first rules of grey market cars is check the odometer and the paper work, title/service history. This car managed to escape the federalization of the gauge cluster or had the metric speedo placed back in. Either way that indicated number is almost certainly kilometers. I will make an attempt to follow up with the owner.

    As a previous grey market car owner I can attest that grey market cars with the kilometers converted to miles issues can cause nightmares with titles if they get recorded backwards. On the rare occasion a seller doesn’t notice this a low mileage car can be purchased as if it was a high mileage one.
    If you find a grey market car with a U.S. odometer you always have to wonder if when the swap took place the U.S. gauges were changed to represent the previous kilometer reading. Documentation of the swap if performed/verified by federalization authorities will have existed at one point.

    Great thanks to the “Dr.” for catching this important Euro spec issue.

    I talked to the seller and they confirm those are kilometers on the odometer so the car actually has 63,190 miles.

    As a Porsche air cooled collector these cars could have some premium in them. In the case of this one its got so many non stock parts all over the car the collectability is near zero and that leaves it as an over priced mosh of parts. Pass at that price.
