Sorry for not posting any updates, thanks for asking and prompting me to post an update! I've attached a few post-restoration shots. This will be one of several Carreras featured in the upcoming Carrera 2.7 MFI book.




At Concours on the Ave in Carmel-by-the-sea, California folks tended to walk by thinking it was a 911 SC, but whenever I opened the engine it would immediately attract quite a bit of attention and a steady stream of questions from Porsche enthusiasts.

For those that took an interest in this restoration, note that the Carrera 2.7 book is now available for pre-order. The silver 1976 Carrera 2.7 MFI in this thread is one of several Carrera models studio photographed for the book. The book also contains a significant amount of new information, research and never before published photographs.

I just realized I never posted a link in this thread last year to the Road Scholars magazine article The Car That Inspired The Book that details this car a bit more along with its influence on the Carrera 2.7 book.

In fact, until the end of November there is a chance to WIN a copy of Carrera 2.7 book.

1976MY M493 wheel option (7 & 8 x 15 platin-dunkel vorne .......anodized petals) did not have inner lips rough anodized like 75MY & earlier M493 wheel option did.

The inner lips were the same matching finish as outer lips & pedals in 1976MY. Same with 1976MY 6 & 7 x 15 platin-dunkel vorne fuchs. Also same with 1976MY black center 7 & 8 fuchs (M401).......inner lip anodizing matchs outer lip.


The 75 & earlier style inner lip anodizing does look better to me however.
Ryan what is your take on this? Was this ever confirmed?

Ryan was the top of the smugglers box painted silver after this photo or does it stay black?

It varies car by car produced at that time...seems to be an artifact of how they left the door open or not during painting. Lots of cars have the black on both lid and around the area where it was left open. That was how it was originally on 911 660 9050 and many other cars.

Richard Lane and I recently debated whether this was paint overspray (on original cars) or whether it was actually a black primer under layer that showed through. I am waiting to see a perfectly original car again to inspect this (there is a low mileage 1974 nearby that I hope to inspect in the next month or two to confirm). For the restoration of 9050 we reproduced the black paint and overspray on the smugglers box lid/surrounding area.

Awesome, thanks! What’s your take on the wheel anodizing comment?

I believe all painted center Fuchs DID NOT have the rough anodized inner or outer lips.

The clear anodized pedals I'd have to go back and research (since these were quite rare by then), but presumably they would have been like the 1974-75 style.

I had a set of black centered 7&8x15 Fuchs with Late 76 or early 77 date stamps that had the rough inner lip with the bright outer lip. Ill see if I can find a pic.

Congrats on the Car and Book!

Ryan: Looking at your images and for the first time it occured to me that I think I saw your car at Laguna Seca in the 80s- before anyone knew or cared [but this state didn't allow them back then either]. As rare as they were then, and are now, I'm guessing a good chance. Back then it was running Oregon plates. We used to call them "76 RSs".

BTW, Now it's books. Ryan did an equally good volume specific to the 930 3.0. I'm hoping he will decide to do a 930 3.3 book!
