Anybody familar with Peter Morgan's book and the 76 Carrera 2.7mfi


Recommended Posts

Was there any conversation here on why Peter Morgan does not mention the existence of the 76 Carrera 2.7mfi cars?

I have someone who is arguing with me that because Peter does not mention these 76 Porsches that these car do not exist and I have made it up.

He also mentions the 'Red Book' which I am not familar with, also does not mention or talk about the 76.

Thanks for help

I've got three books which do not mention the possibility of a model year 1976 Carrera 2.7 MFI (engine 911/83): 1. Peter Morgan's book, 2. the Red Book, and 3. Marc Bongers' book. 

However, the Porsche PET does show 1976 VINs for such a car:

But not 123 cars and not my 119

The Porsche 911 Source Book makes reference to 123 of the 76 Model Year Carreras having the 210bhp motor, which I assume is the MFI motor. No further detail.

Yeah,  I have that book. Not reassuring that they think the engine was a 3.0...

That's probably because 1976 was the first year of the Carrera 3.0. The table shows a capacity of 3.0 and a power of 200 hp for the 930/02 engine, which is correct for a Carrera 3.0.

The text mentioning the 123 examples says Carrera 3.0 but states the power of the Carrera 2.7...

The Porsche Book by Boschen and Barth also mentions them, if anybody knows Jurgen Barth would.

There were actually 113 produced with chassis numbers 9116609011 to 9116609123 as the numbers 1-10 were reserved for prototypes so not normally used. The figure of 113 produced (Stuckzahl) is also shown on the COA linked in the Car and Classic ad, a case of a COA actually being correct for a change!

Oli, I also believe you have a copy of the original German Fahrzeugbrief for the car which shows the chassis number and engine specification as well as the production number, all the proof you need that it exists!
