This is the one!This clean low mileage, two-owner 1974 Porsche 911 Carrera Targa is ready for summer.Model year 1974 was the first year of the impact bumper 911—internally referred to as the “G-series.” It was also the first year of the 2.7-liter engine based on 7R engine block. This would be the very last 911 engine that would be of magnesium-case design. It is a direct carryover from its European counterpart—the legendary 2.7 Carrera RS—but in detuned form to meet U.S. emission standards.

In addition to its limited production (#122 out of 246 Carrera Targas made for the US market), the car is optioned with the striking color combination of Grand Prix White over Midnight Leatherette.This is a very nice car that has been well kept by its previous owners. The completely rust free chassis is strong and solid with original paintmeasuring consistently between 3.5 and 5 mil. The interior is in great shape, including period correct sport seats (an option for these cars in 1974) added by the previous owner. The wheels were also upgraded to 15 x 8″ Fuchs in the front and 15 x 9″ in the rear, providing a massive upgrade to handling and cornering grip.

The original 2.7 liter flat six engine was changed out early in the car's life with another (#6342450) 1974 Porsche Carrera engine (the previous and long-time owner believed that the engine was swapped by the factory.) The engine runs very strong and the matching 915 transmission (#344201) shifts very smoothly; the steering is crisp and the brakes are solid.On the road this 911 Carrera rides smoothly and the bright Grand Prix White paint really makes this car pop white the classic duck-tail rear spoiler and polished Fuchs alloy wheels (shod in new Pirelli P4 tires) complete the visual impact of this Targa. Since arriving at Makellos Classics, the car has been gone through by our Porsche factory trained technicians and has quickly become one of our favorite cars in our inventory. The car has been given a through detail and is ready to be enjoyed!
