1976 Porsche 911 2.7
This 1976 Porsche 911 2.7 is a highly-specified Australian example presenting in a desirable wine red colour combination. Under the rear decklid is a 2.7-litre air-cooled flat-six-cylinder engine producing 123kW (165hp), which is sent to the rear wheels through a five-speed manual transmission. This example currently displays 190,009km on its odometer.
For model year 1974, the body design of the Porsche 911 was comprehensively redesigned for the first time since the 911’s introduction 11 years earlier. While most models of this era are referred to as G-bodied cars, Porsche aficionados will tell you that the 911 2.7 of 1976 is designated as I-Serie. They are characterised by extended chrome detailing, bumpers with black bellows, body-coloured electric side mirrors, and a tail-light panel with Porsche script. The redesign was intended to make the 911 more appealing to a wider audience, featuring newfound enhancements in luxuriousness, practicality, and refinement. Today, it’s one of the most accessible ways to enter the 911 club.
Originally painted in Silver Metallic, this car has undergone a full respray to period colour Winerot metallic. It was specified with brown leatherette upholstery from factory, and also options an up-spec five-speed gearbox, air conditioning, ‘S’-instruments, and an electric sunroof. It is fitted with the wide body arches of later 911s. This 911 rides on 15-inch Fuchs wheels with coloured Porsche crests; the tyres are Hankook Ventus.
This Australian-delivered Porsche 911 was supplied through Hamiltons Porsche in early 1976. It largely remains in unmodified condition, save for the deletion of the factory air-con compressor being removed (can be replaced) and an aftermarket head unit (original supplied). It has benefitted from regular on-time servicing through official Porsche outlets and Porsche independents, having recently undergone extensive works by Cascone Auto Sport in 2021. The current owner describes the car as mechanically sound, driving very well.
Winerot metallic paint on the exterior presents very nicely, showing nice reflections and minimal signs of scratching. The owner notes some minor blemishes on the doors, though these markings do not detract from what is a well-presented car. Very little signs of wear and tear are identified on the car’s exterior trims. The car rides on a set of 15-inch Fuchs wheels in black with polished rim, while the centre caps are painted Porsche crests. These show in good order all round, with no obvious signs of damage.
The interior has fared similarly well over the course of 90,000km. The brown leatherette upholstery shows in near immaculate condition, with the seats retaining their original shapes and no signs of tears or creasing. The carpets are all clean, as is the headliner, while items such as the steering wheel, dash and door cards all present in fantastic condition. The dash shows no signs of deterioration. All gauges and switchgear functions as intended.
This car will be supplied with a service history, the original radio, and the photographed documentation.
