It is no secret that in many cases the US market has missed out on some of the best cars produced in other parts of the world. In some cases, the marques themselves simply have disappeared from our shores, but in other cases a known marque decided to offer the US a much different version of a particular car. Such is the case with the car featured here: a Grand Prix White 1975 Porsche 911 2.7 Euro Carrera Coupe with 37,549 miles. Beginning in 1974 Porsche redesigned the front of the 911 in order to meet more stringent crash standards. They also upped displacement from 2.4 liters to 2.7 liters. However, the car that found its way to the US was markedly different from what the rest of the world received. Outside of the US the 911 produced from 1974-1976 was essentially a 1973 Carrera RS Touring, but with a redesigned front end. These featured the 2.7 liter MFI engine of the Carrera RS that produced 210 hp, rather than the 173 hp top-of-the-range engine found in the 911 S for sale in the US, in addition to the wider and lighter body of the RS Touring. Fortunately, it is now possible to find some of these non-US versions on the market. Unfortunately, they are very expensive, especially relative to a 1975 US-spec 911, which these days is one of the few 911 variants to show little appreciation in value.
