1974 Porsche 911
Story and History
Nineteen seventy four began a new era for Porsche, discontinuing the beloved 911T and 911E. The mass produced base model now labeled as 911 and the top-of-the-line limited performance model deemed Carrera (sending 500 some to the States). Yes our safety laws had an impact on US bound Porsches, but not as restricting in ‘74 as what would come in subsequent years. Important to note in 1974 we got new bumpers, revised front spoiler, position of indicator signals, larger fuel tank (21 gal), more rigid anti-roll bars, seats integrated with headrests, side-window defroster vents, and the Carrera sported the 3-spoke leather wrapped steering wheel. All models sporting 15” wheels around, but the Carrera retaining the popular alloy fuchs (slightly wider) instead of the “cookie cutters” mounted on the 911 and 911S models. The ‘74 Carrera also fitted with, most importantly, the legendary 2.7 liter engine and finished off with the “ducktail” rear spoiler as we first experienced with the ‘73 Carrera RS.
