911 2.7 MFI Euro
By any standard, a Porsche is a unique car. But by “Porsche” standards there are three factors that can allow a given Porsche to be even more special than it already is. These factors are 1) low production number models, 2) Interesting model or individual vehicle history, and 3) a vehicle that has been kept in amazing original condition, or has undergone an extensive “to original factory specification” restoration. When looking for a collectible Porsche for investment purposes it is a wise consideration to search for a vehicle that holds one or more of these important qualities.
The vehicle presented here possesses all 3 of these important qualities. Firstly, it is a low production 1974 Porsche 911 Carrera Coupe 2.7 MFI, a model that was not available in the U.S. market at the time of manufacture. This model utilized the same powerful Type 911/83 2.7L MFI engine as the legendary 1973 Carrera RS. Secondly, this particular Porsche has a unique history having been ordered, owned, and delivered to the Prince of Bahrain, Abdulla Hamad Al-Khalifa. The Prince took delivery at the Porsche Factory in Stuttgart on May 17th, 1974 and then drove the car some 41,256km (or 25,625 miles) until he sold it in March 1997. The Carrera then had 3 different owners in the United Kingdom before it was driven back to Germany for a complete rotisserie nut and bolt restoration by a well know Porsche restoration specialist to original specifications, except for the deletion of the stereo and the addition of a passenger sports seat to match the driver's side. This work was completed June 5th, 2013 with an odometer reading of 94,081km (or 58,435 miles)
This very special car rolled off the Porsche factory floor in Zuffenhausen in approximately April/May 1974. It was produced with Copper Brown Metallic paint (code Z6) and a supple Tan, leather to sample interior.
