No More Chocolate: ’75 Porsche Carrera
We don’t often search for or receive Porsches from this era. These were the “de-smogging” years and Porsches, like all other cars, suffered some performance loss. But Porsches still maintained the edge they were always known for. R&T grudgingly concluded, “they’ve got you over a barrel: a Porsche is like no other car, and if you want one there’s no substitute.” For 1975, the Carrera gained a deeper front spoiler and IROC-style rear spoiler. The 911S was visually unchanged, but the base 911 disappeared. Porsche expanded standard features to include push-out rear windows, plus intermittent wipers, a rear anti-roll bar and, for the Carrera, a leather interior. This car is a Carrera but it is a new interpretation of what a Carrera could have been back then. First, it is a color change (formally chocolate brown) and normally that is a turn-off for a Porsche collector. But this Porsche is more for a Porsche driver than a showman. The list of modifications is off the charts and the end result is a spectacular eye-catching 911. Read the seller’s listing for the details. He is asking $72,500 so if you look at this as a regular ’75 Porsche Carrera you will think him crazy. Think of it as an outlaw or race prepared car suitable for the street. The dazzling exterior is worth it. Contact the seller by clicking here.
