History

This very early "G model" is from March 1974 and was sold from new in Japan. Here it has been in the hands of very pertinent owners who have retained a large part of its papers on service and ownership and kept it in pristine order in a large Porsche collection. It presents beautifully with the great chrome details of the early models, and in general is kept it was delivered in its time - in the correct Grand Prix Weiss with Blauschwarz interior and rolling on the 15 "Fuchs wheels, which the first owner had ordered as an option from the factory.

 

Add to the above that the car drives strong, tight and sprightly as well and the car here is probably one of the best early G-models on the market. 

About the model:

Model year 1974 (G Series) saw three significant changes compared to earlier models. Firstly, the engine size was increased from 2.4 to 2.7 litres, producing more horsepower and increasing torque.  Secondly, the new bumpers had to conform with requirements of US regulations.  Thirdly, the 911 was given K-Jetronic CIS Bosch fuel injection.

The 2.7-litre engine in the 911S now produced 173 hp, an increase of 23 hp compared to the 2.4-litre model. From 1976, the standard model received an increase to 163 hp, which meant that there was only a 10 hp difference in power between the 911 and the 911 S.

Mechanically, the 911 was noteworthy due to the fact that it has rear-wheel drive and is air-cooled. From the very beginning, the 911 was modified by private teams and by Porsche itself for racing, rallying and other forms of automotive competition.

Vehicles from the original 911 series are often regarded as the most successful and competitive cars ever produced, particularly considering the many variants. One of the most notable is the high-performance 935, an evolution of the 911 which won the 24 Hours of Le Mans in 1979 (935 K3 variant) even though it was in competition with other, larger sports cars and prototypes.
