One of just 2,564 Carrera 3.0s built between 1976 and 1977
Finished in Sienna Metallic over a Beige Brown interior
Matching-numbers chassis, engine, and gearbox
Accompanied by a Porsche Certificate of Authenticity
Serving as the interim model between the base 911 and the fearsome 930-generation Turbo, the Carrera 3.0 was the top-of-the-range naturally aspirated 911 between 1976 and 1978. Its performance matched the outgoing 911 2.7 RS, while the 2,994-cc flat-six offered increased tractability and reliability. Celebrated as one of Stuttgart’s great driver’s cars, just 2,564 coupés and 1,123 Targas were built.
This left-hand-drive example was completed on 26 March 1976 before being delivered to its first owner via Porsche Belgium, Luxembourg. Attractively finished in special order Sienna Metallic over a Brown Beige leatherette interior and the much sought-after chrome package that it still retains, it was further specified with the desirable five-speed manual transmission, forged alloy wheels, front and rear spoilers, Koni shock absorbers, a sunroof, and white fog lights. A Blaupunkt Bamburg radio with additional amplifier rounded off an impressive specification.
The accompanying history file details restoration work started in 2018, with hundreds of photographs documenting each stage of a comprehensive rebuild said by the consignor to have taken four years and over 1,400 man-hours to complete. The car is accompanied by several invoices for parts; a Porsche Certificate of Authenticity confirming matching-numbers chassis, engine, and gearbox; in addition to keys, a jack, and owner’s manual.
This beautifully restored 911 Carrera 3.0 is a fine example of its type, finished to a high standard and in a desirable specification.
