The U.S. 75-77 Porsche 911, known as the ‘middle years’, are some of the least sought after 911’s ever. Nearly every 911 buyer’s guide I’ve ever read recommends against these models due to serious engine concerns and instead point to the 78-82 Porsche 911SC, which is considered bullet-proof in comparison. This car seems to have solved that issue with the swap of a 993 3.6L Vario-ram motor!
1977 Porsche 911S w/ 3.8L on eBay
Spotted first on Pelican Parts for sale forum, this is an enthusiast’s pet project, and his lengthy eBay description demonstrates a real attachment to the car.
Currently at $14k+, reserve not met (UPDATE 12.26.07: Sold for $22k.). I imagine it will take longer than a few weeks to sell a car like this as it will have to be thoroughly inspected before even being considered. Not to mention, it has a lot of personal taste sort of considerations — like that color combo for instance! But for the right buyer, this could be a really cool Porsche-R-Gruppe like car.
Update:Whoops, Paul from the Sports Car Shop corrected me that the motor is a 3.6L, not a 3.8L. Sorry about the error!
