Superb low mileage original paint U.S. specification 1975 2.7 Carrera Coupe presented in the rare and beautiful color combination of Gulf Blue (code 328) over black leather.
Original gulf blue cars have developed a cult following among Porsche collectors.
Porsche produced just 395 Carrera coupes for the American market in 1975, Cosmetically identical to Carrera’s sold in other markets, the U.S. version was fitted with an emissions equipped 165 bhp 2.7 litre engine with K-Jetronic fuel injection with power delivered through a Type 915 five-speed manual gearbox.
G-series Carreras had flared front fenders and widened rear quarters to accommodate wider Fuchs forged alloy wheels and larger tires. Replacing the simple “burzel” or ducktail, introduced on the 1973 RS 2.7, the 1975 Carrera’s spoiler was larger and rubber-edged. Its effect was balanced by its rubber front air dam. The new G-series cars also received new high-back driver and passenger seats and a leather wrapped “Sport” steering wheel.
Every mechanical aspect of this vehicle was given a sympathetic restoration to concourse standards and driveability.
The car has been meticulously serviced by marque specialists Scan Automotive in North Vancouver since being acquired by Carrera Holdings Ltd. of Vancouver in 2020.
Nicely optioned with an electric sunroof and windows, air conditioning and under -bumper fog lamps. The car has its original dealer invoice, original warranty book and maintenance log book from its first owner.
Superb and stunning in every aspect.
