1974 Porsche Carrera 3.0 RS
Restoration and Refurbishment work
Porsche built a total of just fifty-four Carrera 3.0 RS Coupes and chassis #9109 was the last numbered 3.0 RS in this short homologation series to leave the factory.
These cars were road legal and fitted with a 3.0 litre Type 911/77 engine, which was perfect for road use but also eminently suitable as a Group B competition car and many were also used in races and rallies. As with the 2.7 Carrera RS, its 3.0-litre successor was lightened by the use of thin-gauge steel, simplified equipment and fibreglass engine and bonnet lids.
Like most RSs #9101 had been repainted during its earlier life and in order to restore and fully refurbish the car to a high standard again, the bodyshell was fully disassembled and stripped back to bare metal. Our inspection revealed no evidence of any previous damage or repairs, the car retaining factory welded wheel arch flares and no evidence of any body panels ever having been replaced.
We fully refurbished the suspension and brake systems. Serviced the engine in the stand and rebuilt the gearbox to make the car fit once again to be enjoyed equally on prestigious tours and rallies as on the road or in the mountains.
