Welcome to the 911 2.7, Carrera and 3.0 Register
The 911 2.7, Carrera and 3.0 Register covers 911 models produced from 1974 to 1977.
The 1974 model year saw the first major revision of the 911 with the introduction of the ‘impact bumper’ body style. Other updates included lighter aluminium rear trailing arms, a simpler one-piece front anti-roll bar, high backed seats with integral headrests and inertia reel seat belts.
The model line up consisted of the 911, 911S and the Carrera which had wider rear arches, all available as a Coupe or Targa with 2.7 litre engines. The 911, 911S and U.S. Carrera engines featured Bosch K-Jetronic fuel injection whereas the rest of the world Carrera was fitted with the same 210 bhp mechanical fuel injection engine as used in the Carrera RS. Whilst the 911 and 911S were available with sportomatic transmission, the Carrera was manual only but could be fitted with such options as ‘ducktail’ rear spoiler, ‘Carrera’ sidescripts and black instead of chrome trim.
1975 saw additional emissions control for the engines in the U.S., the spoiler package for the Carrera featured the ‘whale-tail’ in conjunction with a front rubber lip and a ‘Silver Anniversary’ model in special silver metallic paint was produced.
For 1976 the Carrera was equiped with a new 3-litre engine whilst the narrow body car continued as a single model retaining 2.7 litre engines. In the U.K. the Carrera 3.0 was available with a ‘sport’ option pack which included front & rear spoilers, sports seats, Bilstein dampers and wider Fuchs wheels.
This model line-up continued for 1977 with minor changes, which included 16” Fuchs wheels and a new all polyurethane rear spoiler for the Carrera 3 Sport.
