1974 Porsche 911 Carrera 2.7

I will get this out of the way from the jump: it’s unlikely I can do justice to this 911. I love the color combination and its overall appearance from the contrasting orange/black exterior to the ducktail to the contrast of the tan and black interior. The entire package fits my tastes particularly well and the more I look at it, the more I like it. I’m strongly attracted to orange cars, a color that certainly does not suit everyone. But when I first came across it I wasn’t sold on the interior. I tend to prefer a black interior on an orange car, but I’ve turned 180 degrees from that initial impression and now prefer this over an all-black interior. It’s vibrant, it’s aggressive, it’s got classic 911 lines. The model itself is a US-spec 1974 Porsche 911 Carrera 2.7 Coupe. Were this the European Carrera 2.7 featuring the MFI engine of the Carrera RS then we’d be looking at a seriously hot commodity. As it stands, the US model comes at a significantly lower price point, though the Carrera still commands a good deal more than a similar condition ’74 911 or 911S.

1974 Porsche 911 Carrera 2.7 Coupe – REVISIT

$_57

The Bitter Chocolate over Gold 1974 Porsche 911 Carrera 2.7 Coupe we featured back in early July is back up for sale, this time as a no reserve auction. With the starting bid set at $77,000 this is priced higher than where the previous reserve auction we featured ultimately finished ($71,100), but the price isn’t too far off so I imagine there will be interest here. While the market for the US-spec Carrera 2.7 is not nearly as white hot as that for the Euro Carrera 2.7 MFI, these cars still are performing quite well and might be one of the examples that continues to increase in value as the market takes further notice of the mid-year 911.
