One of only a handful, of a total 1,023, UK supplied RHD, G series Carreras with the iconic 210 bhp 2.7 litre MFI engine as in the 1973 Carrera RS, giving identical performance figures as the RS Touring, 0-60 6.3 secs and 149mph maximum.

This car, 9115600361, finished in the original silver with blue leather also benefits from an electric sunroof and the even rarer addition of factory fitted air conditioning.

An earlier restoration has been carried out when the car was stripped and underwent a bare metal respray and new inner & outer sills and four new wings were fitted. Since then it has been fastidiously maintained, a fact illustrated by the 9 trophies won at Porsche Club concours events.

The Carrera was originally supplied from Porsche with the first version of a “Whaletail” spoiler as fitted contemporaneously to the RSR, this has been replaced with a non-spoilered engine cover but the original is still with the car.

A few hundred miles ago the 2.7 MFI engine was completely stripped and rebuilt by marque specialists, Jaz Porsche and a new set of Porsche spec Pirelli P6000 tyres were fitted.

Taylor And Crawley
Taylor and Crawley was founded in 1937 and sold Mercedes-Benz and Alfa Romeo cars from their Mayfair premises. After the war, they became the UK Mercedes-Benz importers and main agents before importing Maseratis and then becoming Alfa Romeo dealers. Scion of the Taylor family, son Michael, was a successful racing driver in the 1950s, being a factory Lotus sports car driver eventually graduating to Grands Prix before his career was cut short by car failure in the tragic Belgium Grand Prix at Spa in 1960. David Clark, already an established purveyor of sports and racing cars, was a friend of Michael Taylor and acquired the company in the 1980s when Michael retired. Since then the company has been prominent in the Historic car market, especially with competition cars.
