DT: 1975 Porsche 911 Carrera Coupe

Up for auction is this 1975 Porsche 911 Carrera Coupe finished in a classic black over black color combination.  With its iconic 911 styling along with an aggressive stance, this car demands attention wherever it goes.  Representing one out of a small few 75' Carrera's available in the US, this example offers a great opportunity for any enthusiast that is seeking a distinctive air-cooled 911.  Now being offered with a clean bill of health, this Carrera is ready to be enjoyed by its new caretaker.

Having undergone a professional refinish in its original color of black, the seller notes that this Carrera shows to be in good condition.  Adding a unique touch, this example is factory equipped with Gold "Carrera" livery running along the bottom of each door.  A few exterior features include a factory Carrera whale tail spoiler, fog lights, and factory black Fuchs wheels that wear a set of General Altimax tires.

The sporty black partial leather interior is said to be in original condition with minimal signs of wear. The well-kept condition of the carpets, door panels, headliner, and dashboard show the pride of ownership this car has received throughout its life.  All electronics and accessories are said to be in working order.

This Carrera retains its numbers matching 2.7L flat-six engine that produces 165HP and 167 lb-ft of torque. Power is sent to the rear wheels via a desirable 5-speed manual transmission. Prior to the sellers acquisition, a Connecticut dealer fine-tuned the fuel injection system and mounted a new set of tires.  Already in excellent running condition, the current owner brought this 911 to a higher level by addressing several items recommended by his technician such as;

  • Replaced Engine Mounts
  • Clutch Cable Adjustment
  • Rebuilt left and right Front Brake Calipers
  • Installed new Headlamp Scoops
  • Replaced Master Cylinder
  • Replaced Shifter Bushing and Coupler
  • Replaced Outer Tie Rod Ends
  • New Blower Motor
  • New Fuel Pump
  • New Turn Signal Relay
  • Complete Interior/Exterior Detail

The seller describes this Carrera as an honest, well-sorted example that has been revitalized and ready to enjoy.

Following the 1973 introduction of the Carrera RS, Porsche continued with Carrera production and development. While Rest of the World (ROW) examples received the Mechanical Fuel Injection from the '73 model, the US Carrera received the K-Jetronic CIS (Continuous Fuel Injection) system of the 911S.  The Carrera featured wider rear quarter panels like famed 73 RS as well as an optional Carrera one piece whale tail spoiler which contributes to its aggressive demeanor.  Some believe this to be one of the most aggressive looking Porsches of the era.

The sale will include a master key, and a Certificate of Authenticity.  This is an excellent opportunity to acquire a distinctive and special G-body 911 that is sure to provide plenty of enjoyment behind the wheel.

    @-PORSCHE- appreciate the feedback, I’m happy to accept more!! This is priced at what I feel is a realistic price for this that is both fair and reasonable. Thanks for the interest.

    @-PORSCHE- These weren't bad engines but did suffer from heat issues due to the attempts by the factory to meet emissions. They are notorious leakers which can be fixed but it's not an inexpensive proposition. Most, if not all have had head stud issues addressed by now but you would want proof. IF I were buying (and this is a very interesting car) I'd want to see documentation.
    A brave man might go after the exhaust system with the understanding that the exhaust studs can break in a NY minute. I've been on "that train" too many times. Steven Stomski makes a nice do-it-yourself kit or seek a good machinist. EDM machines are the cat's meow but regardless it's still an engine out procedure.
    Money no object, I'd pull this one and set it aside. Finding a good 3.0 or 3.2 to replace it may be cheaper in the long run. Good luck.

    @Slim_Chance , Thanks! That's very interesting. Now that you pointed that out - something I had not considered before - I wonder if even with the replacement of the heat exchangers with SSI or used OEM heat exchangers at ~$1000 or possibly less would make a difference. Because it's still an engine of the type that earned a bad reputation back in the day, would it need to be rebuilt from heads out to remove the "stigma"?

  • Slim_Chance 3 months, 3 weeksago

    @-PORSCHE- I'm guessing picture #86 could be one reason. The last car to run standard "old school" heat exchanger/headers was in '74. Thermal Reactors aren't what you want to see. These may be "look-alike" to fool emissions inspection but if not they aren't helping sell the car. Either a set of "headers" into the heat exchangers or a set of SSI's would be an upgrade, albeit expensive.
    The air injection ports have been plugged so this wouldn't pass a CA visual inspection missing the air pump and lines. A Black '75 Carrera was always a great looking car.

    I don't understand... Why so cheap? I have a 1974 Carrera coupe and would never sell at this price. Of course, I may never sell at any price. Great car. Nothing like a "normal" 911...

    @01Checkmate @01Checkmate: Musante Motorsports in CT serviced the vehicle in 2017. They went through the engine and verified that they re-torqued the head bolts to factory specs and no issues were reported. Thank you for your interest.

  • 01Checkmate 3 months, 3 weeksago

    Has the valve covers been removed to verify that there is no broken head studs

    @prl I believe the first year was 74, this car is very solid with no rust issues. Thanks!

  • prl 3 months, 4 weeksago

    More pictures would really help. Full frunk carpet out, suspension pics, and belly pan pics.

    Was this the first galvanized production year?

  • PCARMARKET 3 months, 4 weeksago

    @GillesB Thank you for your interest. This vehicle currently shows 3254 on the odometer, which is possibly 103,254, but the true mileage is unknown (TMU). The vehicle is located in Oyster Bay NY, 11771.

    @OneTrueCarGuy Thank you! We appreciate your support.

  • OneTrueCarGuy 3 months, 4 weeksago

    I own number 307 with this one being 292. Great cars and finally getting their due with regards to value. It would be safe to assume this car has 103,211 miles and not 3,211. My car has just hit 21,000 original miles and looks virtually brand new. Nice example here and best of luck with the auction.

  • GillesB 3 months, 4 weeksago

    Not sure to understand the mileage here........and why the post does not mention anything about it. This is obviously not a 3K Miles car.
    Where is the car located and which days are best to see it ?
