The most successful sporting road car ever our 911 is one of the very rare C3 Carreras built only in 76/77. Replacing the famous 2.7 Carrera we believe there are probably less than 40 true RHD factory built Sport models in the UK. Worldwide production over 2 years for the Coupe And Targa was just over 3,000, compared to nearly 58,000 911SCs and 76,500 3.2 Carreras produced. Recently beautifully refurbished in its original metallic silver with black leather interior and refurbished Targa top. A very practical and sporting car- with the Targa top removed the fixed rear screen allows ‘almost’ wind free driving. The car has 2 small back seats (2+2). The large doors and generous legroom allow larger driver (6’6″) and also Brides with large dresses ample space. The high front windscreen and side screens with wrap around rear screen do allow almost wind free driving with targa top removed.
In the mid 1970’s the Carrera 3.0 was a very powerful sports car (0-62 mph in 6.5 seconds / Top speed: 143 mph).The Carrera 3.0 engine is renowned for its free-revving ability. It was developed from the very rare Carrera 3.0RS engine, of which only 109 were built. The engine of this car produces 200 bhp at 6000 rpm and has 188 lb/ft of torque at 4200 rpm. This car has almost identical 0-60 and 0-100mph performance figures to the original 2.7RS and 2.7 Carreras. Due to its increased torque, it pulls from 25 to 100mph in top gear a good 3 seconds faster than either of its production predecessors which now command prices of £250,000-£800,000.
An engaging and very rare car to drive with the added advantage of the quickly removable Targa top for open air motoring to enjoy the fantastic sounds of the flat six air cooled motor.
