The 3.0-litre Carrera is a rare model, with only 1,125 units in Targa version manufactured between late 1975 and 1977. It differs from the 2.7-litre version by the use of a 930 turbo reinforced block, a 5-blade cooling turbine consuming less power, a new and more economical K-Jetronic Bosch injection system and a lot of mechanical improvements relating to the engine, gearbox, suspensions, braking and anti-corrosion body treatment. Chromes and brushed stainless steel are now matte black and wings are widened to make room for 7 and 8-inch rims.
Out of the factory in December 1976 and according to the seller, this specific car remained into the manufacturer's ownership until 1998, the date on which a new and similar engine in standard exchange was installed before being sold to a German enthusiast, followed by a Finnish collector. It was not imported from Finland until 2019. It is fitted with a rare oil cooling system by coil located in front of the right front wheel and an air intake in the corner of the bumper.
It is supported by a large file of invoices since 1998, a certificate of authenticity from the factory, a certificate of conformity from Porsche France and a stamped service logbook re-issued in 2012. At the end of 2019, the Servant workshop in Montgeron has redone the engine oil cooling system, replaced the steering rack, its ball joints and engine gaskets and seals.
