1974 Porsche 911 Carrera 2.7 Targa

Very rare, first year Carrera 2.7 Targa roof model representing one of only 246 USA examples ever made! Fitted with its number’s matching drivetrain, and restored impeccably to very high standards! Fully rebuilt engine to stock specifications, it remains exceptionally original inside and out! Great color combination!

Coming to the market for the first time was the Porsche 911 Carrera 2.7, with American buyers received the CIS injection system from the S model, along with Carrera RS front & rear steel fender flares, Bilstein shocks, aluminum brake calipers, standard fiberglass RS ducktail rear spoiler, larger 20mm front and added 18mm rear sway bars, and optional dealer installed wider Fuchs alloys wheels. Porsche would supply the Targa roof model only 246 units to the USA market making them exceptional rare!

Offered here is a number’s matching 1974 Porsche 911 Carrera Targa finished in Orange over Dark Blue interior! Coming from a private California collection, this is #32 of 246 factory built examples and has only break-in miles on a complete, professional restoration to both cosmetics and mechanicals! It features its stock, number’s matching 2.7L engine mated to its factory 915 5-speed manual transmission producing 175 horsepower and 235 lb. ft. of torque. Options include Blaupunkt AM/FM Stereo radio, leather wrapped steering wheel, electric clock & VDO instrumentation, front fog lamps, rear window defrost, polished Fushs alloys measure 15×7 up front and 15×8” at the rear wrapped in 60-series BF Goodrich g-force Sport rubber, and more!

Our example has lived the good life in California being sold to a dentist, John Meyer DDS, in September 1974 from Cutright Porsche-Audi based in Santa Monica, CA. It remained documented in his original service manual through 1976. It had changed ownership to a few Porsche enthusiasts over the years before receiving a remarkable 2008/2009 restoration to better than new caliber! During the meticulous restoration, the engine was removed for a top end rebuild by Advanced Engineering of Temecula, California. A full major service was also performed to include new drive belts, plug wires, CDI box replacement with Perma-Tune Electronic ignition, alternator, clutch with correct lightweight Carrera pressure plate and all the proper hardware to refurbish the engine compartment right down to the decal stickers! The vehicle maintains its rust free originality and factory sheet metal, while preserving and all reusable parts.

It was completely stripped with the engine removed and repainted period correct Porsche Orange (156) single stage paint in factory fashion. The interior is style pigskin leatherette with the rare light basket weave factory inserts in dark blue with factory silverknit nylon velour carpet in matching dark blue. It sports factory “black look” exterior trim, flexible lip front spoiler, and rear ducktail spoiler with Carrera script. This early production Carrera #32, (built August 1973) and not to be confused with the ROW units, is in superb condition and likely one of the most beautiful examples on the market today! It hails most recently from a prominent Maryland collection where it has been kept in a gorgeous, climate-controlled garage since arrival. It will come complete with original manuals & service books, factory tools, auxiliary tire compressor, and Porsche Certificate of Authenticity. It represents an excellent investment opportunity, and a perfect addition to any collection! Act quickly; cars of this caliber never last long!
