Regarded as one of the most significant and collectible air-cooled 911s of all, the Carrera 3.0 was produced for Europe between 1976 and 1977, featuring a naturally aspirated version of the powerful 930 Turbo Carrera engine that provided almost identical performance figures to the legendary Carrera RS. A total of 3,687 cars were produced in total, of which 2,564 are Coupes. This 1976 example was originally delivered through Sonauto-Paris of France finished in Black over a matching interior with leather Recaro sport seats. It was cared for by two owners in France before being sold in 2014 to Porsche dealer “Carrera Motors” in Sint-Martens-Late (Belgium) at a milage of 174,000 Km or 108,124 miles. Showcasing a number’s matching engine and benefitting from major engine service, this unrestored Carrera 3.0 is now being offered for auction by its seller in Europe.
This 911 wears its factory-specified Black (700) paint color with contrasting Carrera side stripes, an optional “Whale Tail” rear spoiler, and 15” Fuchs wheels dressed in Bridgestone tires. The seller notes the factory-applied Cosmoline undercoating is still present on the undercarriage and the paint exhibits some patina, but no major scratches or dents. Additional images are provided in the gallery.
The black interior features optional Recaro sport seats as well as a Blaupunkt radio and factory air conditioning system. The seller notes the seat and headliner upholstery is original and in very nice condition.
The seller states that the original 930/02 3.0-liter flat-six engine was disassembled by Carrera Motors in Belgium and serviced with all new gaskets and upgraded head studs. Power is sent to the rear wheels from a 915 manual gearbox with a new clutch and pressure plate. Other service items included a valve adjustment, new spark plugs, and an oil/filter change.
This sale will include a clean title.
