1975 Porsche 911 Carrera

Up for auction is #19 of only 395 1975 911 Carrera Coupes ever made.  Featured in its original and rare color of Ice Green Metallic, this Porsche has a very distinctive look.  In 2016, the current owner acquired the car from its long time previous owner in Atlanta, GA, who had the car since 1982. The car now resides in Alta Sierra, CA and shows 116k miles on the odometer.  It takes just one look to recognize that this Porsche was meticulously cared for throughout its life.

The Ice Green Metallic paint is all original aside from a professional re-spray of the front right fender and is stated to be in excellent condition. The seller does note a few minor chips as well. In addition to this rare exterior color, the Koni shocks, duel mufflers and rear valance modification give this 911 an incredible street presence.

The sporty black partial leather interior is completely original. The exceptional condition of the carpets, door panels, headliner, and dashboard provide clear evidence of how well maintained this car was. The only noted flaw is a small seam that opened up on the driver seat. All instruments, dials and factory optioned electric sunroof are in perfect working order.

The factory fuch wheels are sitting on four brand new Sumitomo tires. 

Powering this 911 is the numbers matching 2.7L flat six air-cooled engine, controlled by a 5-speed manual transmission. Mechanically, the car performs seamlessly. Throughout it’s life, the car has been very well maintained having regular services, including:

    @carnut Sorry it took so long. Work is taking more of a priority and seems to be keeping the fun times at a minimum of late.
    Part number for whale tail is 911.512.010.07. Am still looking for notes in which I copied the chassis number/VIN. My memory is fading on the particulars as I removed it from the wreck in 1980/81 timeframe.

    I have seen the aux grille on the ‘74 3.0RS, I’m guessing for added cooling. The 75-76 Carreras had no aux grille unless they had AC and correct the slightly later turbo had the even larger aux grille. Just curious as I’m also trying to fully sort out the grilles on these tails.

    @jkinne thank you, would be nice to confirm the correctness of that spoiler with a part number.
    Regarding mirror. Starting for the 75 model year, Porsche did offer painted outside mirrors and headlight rings body color. This is correct.

    Have this exact whale tail that was personally removed in Germany from a euro model 74/75 RS wreck along with other parts. Am looking for my notes on specifics and will try and get part number in next day or so. I don’t have an issue with the spoiler, but wonder how the drivers outside rear view is same as exterior paint color since mirrors were either chrome or black and IIRC, window trim was not blacked out as that started in 1976.

    Hello Nathanbs,
    thanks for your post. Good eye. In all honesty, I am not totally sure about the second vent grille on the car. I can not find a parts number without rubbing away paint and I can not do that as this is a clients car we are representing. There are a ton of threads about these grilles on Pelican (http://forums.pelicanparts.com/porsche-911-technical-forum/527702-original-oem-tail-thread-collective-documentation-2.html). We have sold another 75 Carrera a few years ago, completely original car and that had no second vent. But I have seen these over the years. However, they are different from the 930 Turbo version, which has a larger vent. The grille does look aged and has been on the car for many years for sure.
    Hope this helps.

    Beautiful car. Seller what are your thoughts regarding the whale tail with auxiliary grille versus the solid one without an aux. grille that i would expect to see on this car?
