1974 Porsche 911 Carrera 2.7 MFI Coupe

I’ve been showing a bunch of very expensive 911s lately so I figured why not one more. I’ve had my eye on this 1974 Porsche 911 Carrera Coupe for a while now. It’s a pretty special car. It’s a unique and very pretty color combination with a leather-to-sample interior that was originally purchased by the Prince of Bahrain! So if you’re feeling a little extra regal around the holidays then this may be the Porsche for you.

1975 Porsche 911 Carrera 2.7 MFI Coupe

Most automotive enthusiasts are probably familiar with Porsche’s legendary 1973 911 Carrera RS. Produced to meet homologation requirements it set the 911 on the road to being the performance icon that it remains today. What is less well known is that while the ’73 RS would be the only production version based on the long-hood 911 design, the engine from that RS continued to put in work on the new impact-bumper 911s of the mid-70s under the guise of the Carrera 2.7 MFI. For the most part, these were like an RS Touring with a different front fascia. These days it is that shared engine DNA that is of such importance and which has seen values of the 2.7 MFI rise quite high. But they’re still much less expensive than a true ’73 Carrera RS and that makes them an interesting proposition for well-heeled buyers who’d like to shy away from the nearly $1M price tag of the RS. Like the RS the Carrera MFI was never available for sale in the US, but over time examples have made their way to our shores. Such is the case with the one we see here, a Grand Prix White 1975 Porsche 911 Carrera 2.7 MFI Coupe located in California.

Double Take: 1974 Porsche 911 Carrera 2.7 MFI Coupe

A couple weeks back we featured two fantastic 911s for sale at 4 Star Classics – this 1995 Carrera RS Clubsport and this extremely rare 1994 Speed Yellow Turbo 3.6 – and they happen to have two 1974 Carrera 2.7 MFI Coupes for sale so I figured why not show both of them. We’ve had the pleasure of featuring a few of these wonderful 911s in the past and as their values rapidly accelerate I imagine we’ll begin to see even more pristine examples come up for sale. The Carrera 2.7 MFI Coupe combines the running gear of the 1973 Carrera RS Touring with the mid-year redesign of the 911. So while they won’t look as good as a Carrera RS they still possess similar dynamic capabilities and come at a much cheaper price (even if they are still very pricey themselves).

We’ll begin with this example in Grand Prix White over Checkered Leatherette cloth, which shows 54,026 miles on it.
