911 & Porsche World – November 2016
CARRERA 2.7 BIBLE: Spare a thought for the poor old Porsche 911 Carrera 2.7 of 1974. Until recently, it was almost invisible in the shadow of its more illustrious sibling, the Camera 2.7 RS. And yet the Camera 27 shared an identical engine and much of its DNA, including the wide-hipped shell, with the attention-grabbing RS. Of late, market values have grown to reflect its true place in the Porsche pantheon. And now you can celebrate this relatively unsung hero with a new book dedicated to the model. Meticulously researched by author [Ryan] Snodgrass using Porsche archive material, period documentation and access to private collections, Carrera 2.7 sports over 800 images among its 406 pages and includes the complete story, from the original factory options to its production history.
