The tremendous success of its 1973 Carrera RS spurred Porsche to continue that theme into 1974, but newly enacted crash safety standards in the United States mandated the end of the “long-hood” chassis. The new “G” series of 1974 brought shock-mounted impact bumpers, a stronger floor pan, revised lighting, and other related features. New U.S. emissions laws also had an effect on the engine. U.S.-delivery Carreras received the same 150-horsepower, 2.7-liter flat six as the 911 S, while cars destined for the “Rest of the World” (ROW) or “Euro” markets retained the 210-horsepower Type 911/83 engine of the 1973 RS. Feeding that 2.7-liter engine was the wonderfully responsive Bosch mechanical fuel injection (MFI).
The fenders and rear quarters were tastefully flared to accept seven- and eight-inch wide Fuchs forged alloy wheels. Underneath, there were new forged aluminum rear trailing arms, and the Carreras were fitted with 20-millimeter front and 18-millimeter rear anti-roll bars, Bilstein sport shock absorbers and struts, and, of course, large ventilated disc brakes at all four corners. Power was delivered through a Type 915/06 five-speed manual transaxle. The 1974 Carrera 2.7 continued the brilliant performance standards set by the 1973 RS. Contemporary road tests found the new model capable of a 5.5-second sprint to 60 mph.
The ’74 Carreras also retained many of the exterior cosmetic features of the 1973 RS, including the iconic “ducktail” spoiler. A special rubber chin spoiler mounted to the lower edge of the front valance helped balance airflow. Ultimately, Porsche produced only 1,026 ROW Carrera Coupes for the 1974 model.
