Porsche 911 3.0L Carrera Orange (1977) LHD

Chassis / Vin 911760xxxx . Engine No. 6670894 . Original Colour: Continental Orange . Colour Code: 107-9-1 . Miles: 32500

This is a very rare car, 1977 Carrera 3 Coupe LHD only 896 ever built. This is an original Porsche 911 3.0L Carrera with LSD gearbox Chassis# 911760xxxx Engine#. 6670894 Fitted with 16? Original Fuchs wheels 7.0J front & 8.0J rear. Original colour of Continental Orange colour Code 107.
THIS IS A MATCHING NUMBERS CAR in the correct colour.
This is a very rare opportunity to own a low production early 911. Considered the entry level RS In 1976 and 1977 the Porsche 911 Carrera 3.0 liter was available to the world market (ROW), excluding the US market. This new Porsche 911 Carrera came with a 3.0-liter engine the same used the base 930 turbo engine (minus the turbo of course). Even though the engine capacity was larger it actually was 10hp less than the previous Carrera but the torque curve came on earlier due to the large displacement, making it a little easier to drive.
The Porsche 911 ?Carrera 3′ has a very special place in the history of the Porsche 911, as it brought together elements from two of Porsche?s most legendary cars. It represented the latest incarnation of the Porsche Carrera, originally introduced to the 911 series as the classic 2.7 litre RS in late 1972, and the Carrera 3′s 2993cc engine used the same die-cast aluminium crank-case as its awesome cousin, the newly introduced Porsche 930 or ?911 Turbo?.
The Carrera 3.0 engine was essentially the Phenomenal 911 Turbo?s 2994 cc engine minus the turbocharger. Built before the ?911 SC? it has everything the SC has, and more. It?s a different drive with more power @200bhp; more torque @188 ft/lb @4200rpm and it was 10% lighter too. It has the 6 bolt flywheel and a crank from the legendary 73 Carrera RS. The 3.0 carrera would go on to be the basis for all future developed 911?s up to 1989 including the 911SC and 3.2 Carrera. Performance numbers for the Carrera 3.0 are astonishingly similar to those of the famed Carrera RS of the early 70′s and it?s the last time Porsche would use the Carrera name until the Mid 80′s.
Despite a reputation for being a ?tamed-down? version of the original 2.7RS and 2.7 Carreras, The Carrera 3 had almost identical 0-60 and 0-100mph performance figures but was endowed with so much extra torque that it could pull from 25 to 100mph in top gear over 3 seconds faster than either of its production predecessors. The Carrera 3.0 is arguably a better car than the 2.7, even though the latter has the cache of sharing an engine with the RS 2.7 and the older revvy unit made the car more fun to drive.
