The 2.7 911 was launched in October ‘73 for the ‘74 model year to replace the 2.4 litre 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 capacity 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 to 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, a desirable S specification model was to follow soon after.
This example we have for sale is a 1974 911 S. Being an ‘S’ variant, it was fitted with the same engine as the standard 911 but produced a healthy 175bhp.
This car was initially 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 6×15 Fuchs wheels front and rear.
Finished in the 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:
The car was subject to significant 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.
