You want to buy a pre-owned Porsche 911 Carrera 3.0 Oldtimer?
Here we present you some information about the 911 and some Porsche 911 Carrera 3.0 for sale:
The Porsche 911 Carrera 3.0 occupies a very special place in the history of the entire Porsche 911 model range: it combines elements from two Porsche legends. Since the end of 1975, the Porsche 911 Carrera 3.0 represented the incarnation of the Porsche Carrera, which was introduced in late 1972 as the 911 Carrera 2.7 RS in the series and used its 2993 cc engine in the same die-cast aluminum housing as its faster and more legendary cousin, the Porsche 911 Turbo 3.0, also known as the Porsche 930.
An air-cooled Porsche 911 with potential
The fact check and the peek into the past suggest that the Porsche 911 Carrera 3.0 is an extremely interesting vehicle from an investment perspective. However, if one looks at the price development curves of comparable vehicles produced in low quantities (’73 RS, original Turbo, F-models), the Carrera 3.0 has historically performed significantly weaker. In our view, that is logically not justifiable.
Due to the improvements mentioned above, the 1977 model is the better option today. But the ’76 models of the Porsche 911 Carrera 3.0 are extremely rare and of course also interesting vehicles. A much more important criterion for a decision to buy is the condition and history of the vehicle. Restored copies should also be inspected very closely or the advice of an expert should be asked. All that glitters is not gold. If you find a good specimen, then the ingredients for a good investment could not be better. Rare because of the low number of pieces, fantastic air-cooled engine with beguiling sound and classic look. A dream for enthusiasts.
