Description

Don't be confused by this Porsche Carrera RS!

This is not your USA 1974 Carrera version, this is a Porsche Factory European 911 Carrera Mfi with a 1973 Carrera RS engine. Yes, they did make them.  

This is one of the first 300 built that used leftover 1973 2.7RS Mfi 210hp engines for the 1974 Porsche European-specification 911 Carrera. All matching numbers Engine, Chassis, Transmission etc. Including the hidden number in the dash. 

This is a special order paint Y8 Metallic Ice Green. I believe only 1 of 5 ordered in this colour in 1974.

To know more about the car (the Porsche for sale is 1974. Video is a 1975 model). If you watch the video you'll understand how special this 911 Carrera RS is.

The 911 Carrera Coupe LHD with matching number engine and transmission as listed on the COA and Porsche build sheet was ordered in special metallic order of Ice Green Metallic Exterior with Leatherette Blue Black interior with Shetland/twill inlay was delivered to Germany invoiced October 1973.

This Porsche Carrera Mfi was delivered new in Germany at the end of 1973. The car was sent to Japan not long after and sold by Reinier Wanders Japan in 1978 and has been here in Japan ever since.

250 (Y8) - Ice Metallic Green

The car has had an extensive ground-up restoration bring it back to the day it left the showroom in its ice metallic green. Interior, Fuchs wheels all restored in Los Angeles and shipped to Japan. The air-conditioning unit also shipped from the US to Japan. The engine was restored by one of the top engine restorers in Japan famous for their race performance Porsche engines.

My focus was to get it looking like the day it left the showroom. Only Non-correct items are the airconditioning. I wanted one that didn't drain the engine power and yet pumped nice cold air. I also left the Fusch silver although they should be black. Personal preference. I just think the silver looks better. I sought advice from Ryan, Mr Carrera Book himself. Amazing and helpful guy. In making sure my car was factory spec. 

In the meantime, feel free to ask any questions. 

The car comes with a Porsche Japan Certificate of Authenticity (COA). I will also get the newer Porsche certification for it from Porsche Classic.

Thanks for looking.
