The Carrera 3.0 was the link between the Porsche Carrera 2.7 RS and the Porsche 3.0 Turbo.
No Carrera 3.0 was sold in the US because the engine did not meet the emissions regulations for the North American market.
As a result, only 3687 units were built during the construction period 1976-1977.
(1123 Targas, 2564 coupes)
For comparison: The later Carrera 3.2 were produced about 76,000 times.
In recent years, the value of a Carrera 3.0 has developed very nicely.
A further increase in value due to the small number of units can be expected.
The Carrera 3.0 engine is the same basic engine as the Turbo 3.0; only without turbocharger.
To compensate for the lack of power of the turbo, the compression ratio was increased and gave the car a decisive torque of 255Nm.
The engine provides 200hp.
