For the 1974 model year Porsche introduced its new G-series 911
platform to meet new the American safety standards. These rules
mandated more heavily reinforced front and rear inner structures to
better withstand low-speed impacts. The model was now offered as a
base 911, the 911 S, and the top-of-the line 911 Carrera. The cars
destined for the North American market featured the 2.7-liter Type
911/93 engine with K-Jetronic fuel injection, which produced 175
bhp. The Carrera boasted widened rear quarters to accommodate wider
Fuchs alloy wheels and larger tires. The Carrera also carried the
"ducktail" rear spoiler and front air dam introduced on the '73 RS.
Distinctive "Carrera" graphics were featured along the sides of the
This handsome example was completed in October 1973 and delivered
in very striking Guards Red over a black leatherette interior. The
Carrera was originally optioned with factory air-conditioning, a
Blaupunkt stereo radio, front fog lamps, rear spoiler, 15-inch
Fuchs light alloy wheels, as well as stabilizer bars, and Koni
shock absorbers. Today, showing fewer than 41,000 documented
original miles, this very desirable Carrera has clearly been very
well cared for over its lifetime. The ownership history is
documented with a detailed file of correspondence, comprehensive
award history, and records dating back to the original owner.
Interested bidders are encouraged to review the extensive history
file at the Access the Knowledge desk onsite or to refer to an RM
Sotheby's representative for additional information.
Most recently the Carrera was serviced prior to the sale and is
offered with its original owner's manuals, tool set and tow hook,
air compressor and tire pressure gauge, spare key, and spare wheel.
An exceptionally original Porsche, this example is ideal for club
shows and continued preservation.To view this car and others
