Fully restored and with the rarity panache – one of just 21 examples – this 1975 Porsche Carrera MFI should fetch an interesting price when it goes under the hammer.
Just a year ago this beautiful and very rare 911 Carrera 2.7 MFI was actually ready for being turned into scrap metal – but since the desirability of classic Porsches has gone through the roof in recent times we’re happy to report this one too got a second leas of life. It will be part of the Silverstone Auctions’ Classic Motor Show sale on November 12 and the Porsche reaches it after 16 months of extensive rework. It was first bought back in 1975 from Swinford Motors of Stourbridge in the U.K., just 21 911 MFI Coupe units were ever produced.
The car was taken off the road back in 2008 with just 55,500 miles (8,900 kilometers) on the odometer – and in 2015 just two new front wings, and basic perishable items were changed by restoration experts RS 911. The rest is entirely original, including the Ice Green exterior finish, as well as the engine and transmission – produced by renowned Porsche engine builders Tech 9 Motorsport in Liverpool, England. Because it’s such a rare example and now in perfect working condition, the estimates go for anywhere between £240,000-£280,000 ($293,000-$342,000).
