What more can you ask for in a mint, high-performance sports car that's as rare as rocking horse shit? Your initial response should be, is it for sale? And man are we happy to report back that yes, yes she is for sale. Silverstone Auctions has put on the lot a '75 Porsche 911 Carrera 2.8 MFI Coupé that comes with a leading pedigree in provenance, a first-rate history file and has only been touched by world-class Porsche specialists. What a looker.
Fueled and air-cooled with a six-cylinder engine with Bosch mechanical fuel injection lets you open her up on the road to 60-mph in just over 5 seconds; establishing this beaut as the fastest 911 in production until the late '80s.
Exceeding her 0-60 time is her scarcity on the road. In fact, there are only 48 right-hand drive cars listed with the Carrera 2.7 MFI Registry. But she's better than that, this sunroof-equipped model is believed to be 1 of just 21 Coupé examples ever produced for the UK market – accelerating her as part of Porsche royalty.
Previously sold in 2015, this unique Porsche got a complete makeover from celebrated Porsche engine builders Tech 9 Motorsport in Liverpool. From reimposing it's original Ice Green finish to rebuilding its engine and gearbox, the facelift has been deemed as one of the most original examples ever seen on the open market.
Estimated to fetch €240,000-280,000, we firmly believe that's a small price to pay for a driving piece of Porsche history. Congratulations in advance to a very fortunate new owner.
