Selling a 1974 Porsche 911

One of the most exciting Porsche launches of all time happened during the 1974 model-year with the release of the 911 Carrera RS. Considered one of the most sought-after 1974 Porsche 911 models, the Carrera RS is praised by many as being the greatest classic 911 of all-time. “Rennsport” in German or “Race Sport” in English, the Carrera RS had all the components of a street-legal racing car. Demand was strong during this time, and more than 1,636 were ultimately produced. Undeniably powerful, the engine was a new 2.7-litre version of the now famous flat-six. Unfortunately, due to United States emissions standards, the RS was not available in the U.S. market at first. With its flared out rear fenders and small spoiler beneath the front bumper, these cars are unmistakable. Whether you are looking to sell a 1974 Porsche Carrera RS or have another 911 model that you think the team would be interested in, you’ve come to the right place!


1974 Porsche 911 Seller’s Guide

When it comes to Seller’s Tips, the Alex Manos team will tell you that these 2.7-litre engines have a very documented issue with engine lifespan. Because the displacement was increased without providing enough cooling support, models with the 2.7-litre engine would get extremely hot. The result was head studs that would be pulled out of the crankcase and destroy the valve trains. In fact, many of these engines would only see approximately 50,000 miles before they were dead. If you’re selling a 1974 Porsche 911 with a 2.7-litre engine, buyers will ultimately want to know if the engine has been repaired or replaced. There are a few “fixes” for this problem that can be done to prevent failure, however costly they may be. Other owners have opted to replace the 2.7-litre engine with other Porsche engines. Regardless, a knowledgeable buyer will certainly want to have a discussion with you regarding these issues.
