Carrera 2.7 (Limited Edition)

Ryan Snodgrass

The soul of Porsche's legendary Carrera 2.7 RS lives on within the Carrera 2.7 MFI

Serious automotive enthusiasts consider Porsche’s Carrera 2.7 RS to be the archetypical 911…and deservedly so. The cars are light, responsive, purposeful and the type 911/83 engine delivers scintillating performance. Over the last 40 years the 2.7 RS has been covered in dozens of books and articles. Yet its successor – a car with the identical engine and similar DNA – remains either unknown or misunderstood even by long-time Porsche enthusiasts. That car is the Carrera 2.7 MFI. This book tells the complete story of these remarkable, unheralded sports cars.

The Carrera 2.7 book has been meticulously researched using the Porsche factory archives, private collections, period documentation and intensive study. The book attempts to cover everything an owner, restorer, historian or enthusiast would want to know about this intriguing 911 variant. Content includes comprehensive discussion of original options, photos of key details, insights into factory production, competition history and a considerable amount of material never before published. Although primarily focused on the top-of-the-line mechanically-fuel injected Carrera 2.7, this book will also prove valuable to enthusiasts of any of the Porsche 911 and 930 Turbo models produced during the mid-1970s.

The blue Limited Edition of 2,500 numbered hardcover copies is offered in English with five-color printing on high-quality paper and enclosed within a protective slipcase.

“Carrera 2.7 is one of those Porsche books you just cannot put down. It is a perfect example of how to write a modern super detailed and beautifully designed text on a specific car.” “excels in terms of research, writing style, design and the huge amount of contemporary and studio photography” “a fantastic work and an essential for any serious Porsche book collector”
GT Porsche magazine

"Before reading Carrera 2.7, I had always considered the model to be a tiny aspect of the Porsche 911 story, a stop gap model that bridged the gap between the iconic 2.7RS and the start of the EFI 3.0 and 3.2 litre cars. While that may be one way to consider the model, Ryan Snodgrass’ comprehensive book shows just how pivotal the ‘Euro Carrera’ 2.7 model was, both in the influence over subsequent models and the effect on the 930."

Heart and soul!!!

When you read the book you understand that the author has put his heart and soul into researching and writing the book, which is probably the reason he decided his work was worthy enough to dedicate it to his late father. Any father would be proud of his son writing such a masterpiece! A must read for any enthusiast or car lover...
