This particular early-first generation Turbo Carrera 3.0 was special ordered new with exterior and interior executed in a strikingly beautiful, “one-of-one” combination of Albert Blue over Grey full leather. This is confirmed by Porsche special option order code “99” on the original assembly records as well as Porsche Certificate of Authenticity. The color had original been offered initially as a special option color in 1972 and 1973, however very few were ever completed in this color. The original owner had the dealer at time of delivery install Pirelli P7 tires as well as “European” headlight assemblies. He also had the dealer install a special 23-chanel, Blaupunkt Stereo / Cassete system and rear European fog/rain light and European rear tail-lamps. The additional special request items fitted new to the car pushed the selling price to $28,570 making it one if not the most expensive example sold that year.
Complete history and records from new document a total of four owners. In 2013 with the odometer now showing 57,075 original miles, it was given a sympathetic cosmetic restoration by California Porsche Restoration. The work included a partial repaint of any rock-chipped areas and new leather interior from Autos International. The engine received a top-end rebuild at the same time. A full set of complete services was carried out in 2017 with only 200 additional miles added to the car since then.
This head-turning 911 Turbo Carrera is supplied with a Porsche Production Specifications certificate, correct spare wheel and compressor, jack, tools, owner’s manual, and service invoices as well as documented history going back to new.
