Rare opportunity to own a rare Porsche 911.
The 1977 Carrera 3.0 was not available in North America. It shared its engine with the legendary 930 Turbo albeit without the turbo. It also incorporated wider bodywork than the 911S, which would be adopted by the succeeding 911SC range. Total production over two years is less than 3000 units with less than 300 of those '77 Targas.
This example is highly documented, including all of the DOT and EPA certification process and approvals when the car was purchased from its original owner out of Germany by a Porsche specialist in 1984 during the hey day of Grey Market cars in the USA. Following the certification approvals in 1985 the car was sold to its longtime owner who we purchased it from late last year.
The car's North American history has been extensively documented, highlighted by a mechanical overhaul in 2015. Porsche Certificate of Authenticity confirms all original running gear. An insurance appraisal from 2017 values this car at $115,000.00.
The car has received cosmetic refresh over the years and shows beautifully in its stunning and rare Minerva Blue over black leather. Everything works and the aftermarket Alpine CD unit sound great. The Targa top has also been restored in recent years. The dash is flawless. Tires are fresh. This car is ready to drive and enjoy for years to come.
And drive well it does! The 3.0 has a distinct power delivery from either the 2.7 of the 911S or the 3.0 that followed in the 911SC. It runs strong, rolls straight, shifts smooth, steers and stops as you would expect of a Porsche 911.
