Production of the second-generation Porsche 911 started in August 1973, complete with a body redesign. Improvements over its predecessor included the use of the 2.7 litre engine in the 911, 911S and Carrera models and the introduction of the K-Jetronic fuel injection system.
With each year of the second generation 911 production, improvements were made known as the G (1974), H (1975), I (1976) and J (1977) programs. All models came in both Coupe and Targa body styles and were also released with either a 5-speed manual, 4 speed manuals in earlier models or the Sportomatic transmission options.
The improvements made until 1977 included hot dip zinc coating for the entire body shell, a full width reflector placed between the taillights, improved heat regulation, electric door mirrors and face level air vents in the center of the dashboard.
This Porsche 911 2.7 is a good example of an early second generation 911. This makes the car more collectible than the later 911 SC and Carrera’s. It is a numbers matching example, benefits from the upgrades listed above and is still in its original Guards red colour according to the accompanying Certificate of Authenticity from Porsche Classic.
This Porsche 911 presents well has just had a new set of tyres fitted and is available for viewing and inspection at the Crossley & Webb showroom in Gardens Cape Town
