Not sold

 A truly immaculate and very special UK 2.7 Carrera MFI
Details Specification

  The 2.7MFI was the ultimate version of the early 911, the most powerful at 210bhp and the lightest at 1,075 Kg Enormously rare with only 34 original, right-hand drive coupes (only two in Silver) being imported Body shell bare metal repainted by Francis Tuthill. Engine and gearbox rebuilt by Wrightune Original "Whale Tail" is now fitted but the (optional) "Duck Tail" spoiler is also included Comprehensive History File with the car's Porsche C of A, and bespoke, first-edition Handbook (#238) These MFIs are truly collectable and represent excellent long term potential investments Mechanically identical to the famous 2.7 Carrera of 1973, except for using Bosch mechanical fuel injection, the very rare 2.7 Carrera MFI (Mechanical Fuel Injection) was produced in 1974, '75 and '76 only with only 51 UK, right-hand drive cars ever made. They were the ultimate version of the early 1970's Porsche 911, the most powerful at 210bhp and the lightest at 1,075 Kgs. Of these 51 original UK cars, 34 were Coupes (only 2 finished in Silver) and 17 were the Targa top version. In this cars year of production, only 20 cars were imported to the UK and very few, if any, remain in this lovely original condition. Bought by our private vendor, who is himself a Porsche marque expert and significant collector, back in 2012, the car comes with a comprehensive history from new, all documented in an immaculate history file, including a Porsche Certificate of Authenticity. Accordingly, the mileage of 61,190 is correct and warranted. Originally a demonstrator for the Glen Henderson Garage, the car has had just six further documented UK owners prior to our vendor. When he acquired the car, our vendor charged renowned Porsche experts, Francis Tuthill Ltd. to carry out a full restoration with maintaining originality the primary brief. The car was taken back to bare metal and repainted to their normal amazing standards by the team in the paint shop, whilst Wrightune also rebuilt the engine and gearbox. Alll the running gear and brakes were also renewed and a new set of fully anodised Fuchs alloy wheels were also supplied. The original "Whale Tail" is now fitted but the (optional) "Duck Tail" spoiler is also included with this classic Porsche and the tyres are as new today. Pleasingly, amongst the comprehensive paperwork in RGO's interesting history file, can be found the Publishers Edition of the Carrera 2.7 MFI handbook (book number 238 - the same number as the chassis number) which naturally will remain with the car. This cherished Porsche has had very sparing use since the full restoration and drives today as well as it looks. These cars are truly collectable and represent excellent long term potential investments. In the peak of 2015/16 restoration project cars were making well into six figures and fully restored cars well over £200K. The market has cooled since then and now may well be the right time to buy a rare and original Porsche to drive, enjoy and keep. We know of no better example than this matching numbers 2.7 MFI and commend it highly to you.
