The 3.0 Carrera was sold between 1976-1977 and sat neatly between the standard 911 and the 930 Turbo. During that short period, only 3,687 cars were produced which was a very small number compared to nearly 58,000 911SCs and 76,500 3.2 Carreras that were manufactured. This stunning 1977 Porsche 911 3.0 Carrera Coupé is a rare and original, UK delivered, ‘Sport’ model and we believe there are probably less than 40 right-hand drive “true factory built” Carrera 3.0 Sports in Britain.

The engine was developed from the power plant in the very rare Carrera 3.0RS, of which only 109 were built. It produces 200 bhp at 6000 rpm and has 188 lb/ft of torque at 4200 rpm resulting in almost identical 0-60 and 0-100mph performance figures to the original 2.7RS and 2.7 Carreras.

This lovely Carrera Sport was first registered on the 23rd April of 1977, to a Mr W. H Cowling of Uckfield by supplying dealer Malaya Garage, Billinghurst. It's finished in Minerva Blue (W9W9) with Black Leatherette inlaid with Tartan cloth, a really popular period choice.

The 'Sport Option Pack' was a list of M-Codes available only in the UK and included front and rear spoilers, the ubiquitous Whale Tail, anodised aluminium in place of chrome trim, Bilstein dampers, sports seats, and wider Fuchs alloys.

Accompanying the car is a large ring binder containing a very impressive quantity of history dating back to the early eighties. It includes a number of older MOTs dating back to 1980, a fully stamped Service Book, and the Porsche Certificate of Authenticity. The indicated mileage is 108,082 which we believe to be correct, supported by the continuous MOTs. Service details below;

This car has obviously been maintained to the highest standards and has recently only been lightly used having covered less than 8,000 miles in the last 18 years.

This represents a great opportunity to acquire a very rare, matching numbers, sought-after classic 70’s Porsche with a detailed history file, original service books and tools, MOT and full brake service carried out by Export 56 in July this year.
