The 2.7 911 was launched in October 73 for the 74 model year to replace the 2.4 series F series cars. Although it still featured the chrome/ anodised look and slim body of the earlier cars, it also featured an increase in capacity from 2341cc to 2687cc. This was the same engine as the much-coveted Carrera RS, but with a more modern K Jetronic fuel injection system to cope with tightening emissions in the US, smoother running and increased fuel economy. Power was rated at 150BHP which put it between the outgoing T and E models but with more low down torque than both. It also acquired impact bumpers to satisfy US safety regulations but in many other respects, it was very similar to the model it replaced.
This example we have for sale is 1975MY 911 S. Being an ‘S’ variant, it was fitted with the same engine as the standard 911, but produces a healthy 175bhp. This car was originally supplied with a sportomatic gearbox but was later fitted with a 915 manual gearbox in 1993. It is the last of the narrow-bodied ‘S’ 911s with matching 6x15 Fuchs wheels front and rear.
Finished in beautiful guards red with black leatherette this 911 certainly stands out from the crowd and presents in great condition. This example still retains its original engine and was supplied with the following factory options: Fuchs Wheels, Koni Dampers, Anti-Roll Bars, Aluminium trim under doors, rear wiper, Two rear fog lights, Tinted windows, Electric windows and sunroof.
The car was subject to major bodywork restoration in 2013 by renowned restoration specialists, Clark and Carter, which included a full bare metal respray, since then it has only covered a further 9,000 miles so subsequently, the bodywork presents in excellent condition.
