In the mid 1970’s the Carrera 3.0 was a very powerful sports car with a 0-62 mph in 6.5 seconds and a top speed of 143 mph. It has a 3 litre, 6 cylinder, horizontally opposed – air cooled engine. With its Bosch K-Jetronic fuel injection system it was one of the first Porsche’s to return economical fuel consumption without performance loss. The Carrera 3.0′s engine is renowned for its free-revving ability. It was developed from the very rare Carrera 3.0RS engine, of which only 109 were built. The engine of this car produces 200 bhp at 6000 rpm and has 188 lb/ft of torque at 4200 rpm.This car has almost identical 0-60 and 0-100mph performance figures to the original 2.7RS and 2.7 Carreras. Due to its increased torque, it pulls from 25 to 100mph in top gear a good 3 seconds faster than either of its production predecessors.The Carrera 3.0 is lighter than it successors, weighing in at 1093kg. It is almost 6% lighter than the SC (1160kg) and almost 10% lighter than the 3.2 (at 1210kg). The Carrera 3.0 also weighs less than the later (1987-1989) stripped-down Carrera 3.2 Club Sport which weighed in at 1170kg.
All in all an upper tier example, supplied with a letter of authenticity and a generous history file that dates back to 1981. The invoices are plentiful and the file has interesting exerts including adverts, buyers guides and historical technical specifications.
