The 1974 Carrera is one of those 911s that I enjoy spending some time lingering over the details. As the first to sport the redesigned body it’s interesting to get a sense of how Porsche chose to transition from the beloved long-hood 911 to these with impact bumpers, especially when we consider that the basic shell of this design would be with us for another 15 years. There are a lot of interesting touches on these cars, from the Carrera side graphics with color-matched wheels to the use of the ducktail rear spoiler, that set them apart from other mid-year 911s. The 1974 models tend to show the most value of the 911s produced from 1974-1977 and the Carrera is the only model that’s shown the ability to compete in value with a long-hood 911. The example seen here is a restored Grand Prix White 1974 Porsche 911 Carrera 2.7 Coupe, located in Georgia. The listed mileage is 1,974 miles, which I presume is the miles traveled since it was restored.

While I know not everyone enjoys the Carrera graphics on these cars I find the combination used here to be particularly striking and serves as a great contrast to the Grand Prix White paint. Both the exterior and interior of this Carrera present well, though there appear to be some fitment issues along the dash in the interior. I’m not sure if this some sort of peculiar illusion created by the pictures themselves, but I definitely would want to have a closer look to make sure everything is lined up properly. Bidding on this car currently sits at $62,530 and I would expect that to continue to rise. We’ve seen these cars bid well into six-figures for high quality examples so we’ll have to wait and see whether this one can reach what is sure to be a high reserve.
