This California “blue plate” 1974 Lime Green Carrera is stunning. It is production number 236 of just 528 made for the 1974 US market and it wears a highly sought after, rare color combination. If you’re looking for a vintage driver or a garage queen, this is that rare example that can cover both bases. Numbers matching with Porsche COA and also a fully documented engine and drive train rebuild allows for the owner to drive it often and everywhere or have it nicely tucked into your garage and just step out if you want to put a Sunday morning smile on your face. It’s nice to find a 1974 Carrera example that wasn’t flared or painted race red when these cars were getting gobbled up in the 1980’s and modified. The original fat steering wheel feels great in your hands, and just knowing this came off the same production line that days earlier the iconic 1973 Carrera RS was getting made is a good feeling. The Lime Green factory color and mostly-original paint shows exceptionally well and it drives better than it looks. This example currently has a black leather interior with sports seats and black carpet but also comes with the full 1974 factory cinnamon interior as well. Yes, a full second interior with extra front and rear seats, as well as door cards and original carpets. Garage kept and owned by several passionate Porsche enthusiasts over its life allows the next owner to step in today and go.
