Ice Green Metallic
Porsche 911 Carrera 3.0 Targa
This is a wonderful example of a rare 1976 Porsche 911 Carrera 3.0 Targa. It is believed that just 1064 right-hand drive examples were built over two years, and very few of those reached the UK; and of those, not many remain. This has to be one of the nicest Carrera 3.0s around and looks stunning with its striking Ice Green Metallic paintwork, plus the front and rear spoilers of the Sport package, and 15-inch Fuchs wheels.
The Porsche has just had a full restoration, at a cost of some £50,000. Work done included a full, glass-out respray, plus a full engine rebuild with a new clutch and stainless steel exhaust system. The black leather seats have been refinished, new Pirelli P6000 tyres fitted, and a modern Blaupunkt Skagen 400 head unit with DAB and Bluetooth installed.
Before this, the car has a well-documented history record with receipts dating back to 1983, and a Porsche Certificate of Authenticity. The engine has covered just 1000 running in miles since its rebuild, so we shall service it before sale to ensure that it is ready for its new owner.
The Carrera 3.0 is a very interesting Porsche in that it has essentially a normally aspirated version of the contemporary 911 Turbo engine; a free-revving and torquey unit. Its combination of 200bhp in a car that weighs just 1093kg (substantially less than the SC and 3.2 that followed), ensures sparkling performance. 0-62mph takes just 6.5 seconds and the top speed is 143mph. In short, it was a fast car in its day, and remains so today. More importantly, perhaps, it’s much rarer than the 911s that followed, which makes it a true collectors’ item, albeit one you can use and enjoy. And you are unlikely to find a better example than this one; its condition and history are quite exemplary, while its fresh Ice Green paintwork is eye-catching.

Will Jameson says: “What a gorgeous car this is! Ice Green looks period, yet modern, and the 3.0-litre engine is a joy – free-revving and willing. It’s a huge amount of fun to drive, and a rare piece of Porsche history.
