Hexagon Classics are delighted to offer this ultra-low mileage 911 S 2.7 in the desirable combination of Guards Red with Black leather interior. This may well be the lowest mileage 1976 Porsche 911 currently on offer anywhere. This is a completely original example that always dry garaged in car collections and has never required repair or modification of any description.
The iconic Porsche 911 can trace its history back some 57 years, with its family tree containing such memorable cars as the 911S, the 2.7 Carrera RS and the 911 Turbo supercar. Since its introduction in 1963, the 911 has undergone continuous development although the basic concept has remained little changed. Throughout its lifetime, it has been modified by private teams and by the factory itself for racing, rallying and other forms of competition and is among the most successful competition cars ever. Evolution not revolution
In 1974 all 911 variants received the 2.7-litre unit, hitherto reserved for the Carrera when the latter went to 3.0 litres. Although in non-Carrera tune the 175bhp (DIN) 2.7-litre unit made slightly less power than the old '2.4', it had been skilfully reworked to produce significantly more torque over a much wider rev range and offered noticeably improved acceleration. Coupled to a tolerance of low-lead petrol, vastly superior fuel consumption, and increased tank capacity, the new 911 proved superior to its predecessor in every way as a fast, long-distance tourer. 1975 Porsche production also heralded a hot dip galvanised body, a first for a series production car.
Two years after the Coupés introduction in 1964, a convertible 911 - the 'Targa', named in honour of Porsche's numerous victories in the Sicilian classic road race - became available. Open air motoring for Porsche owners beckoned once again.
