911x6xxxxx

As a rule of thumb, 911s with VINs that start with 911 and have a 6 as the fifth digit are more sought after.

Too bad it's not a 75. That extra 9 in there was the code for race cars.

Actually that is a really rare 2.7 Carrera.

I believe 123 were made.

911 Carrera 2.7 Coupé ..... 911 660 9001 ----- 911 660 9123

9116609050.....would be number 50 out of the 123

Cool...can you tell us more about it or pm?

That's the famous 2.7L MFI engine, right ?
Those few cars were produced in 1976 just for the homologation of the race cars...

More info please !

I believe it was still the case in 76. But I may be wrong.

I believe it is a MFI engine.

I have a 76 3.0 Euro Carrera but no MFI.

Yes, you guys are correct, the VIN listed is for one of the rare '76 Carrera 2.7 coupes that were built to homologate the MFI engine for the '76 stock class race season. This is a true 911 RS (unlike the '74 and '75 Carrera 2.7 cars). The engine serial # should be 6680XXX. There were also 30 MFI Targas built for the Dutch police department.

A friend in Chicago has coupe #76 and another friend in VT has #28. If these cars are set correctly they are an absolute blast to drive and a very collectible car to own too.

Any photos of the 911 Ted?
