1973 PORSCHE 911 2.7RS ‘TOURING’

The Porsche 911 2.7 RS has always been, and remains today, one of the greatest cars for both road and track. A popular choice for the racing driver as transport from one European race circuit to the next, it is often considered the ultimate 1970s fast road car.

The Touring we have in our showrooms is a rare Right Hand Drive example, one of the 94 Right Hand Drive factory built cars, and one of only 5 RHD Tourings in Bahia Red.

Chassis 911 360 1022 was completed on the 6th April 1972 and supplied as a M472 Touring, C16 UK spec car. Factory fitted extras include an electric sunroof, drivers outside mirror, electric windows, heated rear screen and black leatherette seats with corduroy inserts.

This is a matching numbers, unrestored example and is exceptionally original. The mileage of 71,284 is documented with history from new. Autofarm first looked after the car for its original owner in 1975, and have maintained it for almost every owner since. The wheels are date stamped, the paint on the inside of the engine bay and under the bonnet is factory original. The trim is almost completely original, externally painted once by AFN in 1998.

The history file is extensive, and includes the original Owner’s Hand Book, original (and mostly complete) Service Record booklet, as well as the Certificate of Originality from Porsche confirming that this is, indeed, a fully matching numbers car.

It is coming out of long-term ownership, the current owner having bought it in 1999. A full service and detail was recently completed by Autofarm.

This is not a restored car; it is an unmolested 2.7 RS Touring that retains so many original factory details often lost in those that have been raced, rallied and restored. A rare opportunity and one for a serious collector of the Porsche marque who values originality.

Year: 1973
Make: Porsche
Model: 911
Dealer: Pendine
Pendine specialise in the sale of historic cars for road and track. Whilst focusing specifically on the immediate post-war period through to the 1970s, our experience ranges from Edwardian racers through to the supercars of the 1990s. The company is named after Pendine sands, the 7 mile stretch of beach on the south coast of Wales that was the setting for Britain claiming and retaining the land speed record in the 1920s. The record runs started with Malcom Campbell in 1924, Parry Thomas with ‘Babs’ in 1926 and finally Campbell again in the first Bluebird in 1927. In the spirit of those pioneer racers, our mission at Pendine is to become the leaders in our field, breathing fresh life into the historic car market as we go.
