Porsche Of The Day: 1974 Porsche 911 Carrera 2.7 MFI

In 1974, Porsche offered a high performance fuel injected Carrera specifically for the European market. These were close to 2.7 RS specification and are often referred to as the 2.7 or Euro Carrera.

The Carrera 2.7 MFI used the 210 hp RS 911/83 engine with Bosch mechanical fuel injection pump from the 1973 Carrera RS. Known as the Carrera 2.7 MFI, these models were built from 1974 until 1976 and were mechanically identical to the 1973 Carrera RS.

The glorious sound and instantaneous throttle response has a remarkable feel compared to the computerized injection systems of the 70s and 80s. In the December 1974 issue of Motor magazine, the Carrera 2.7 MFI was extensively tested and they measured a 0-60 mph time of 5.5 seconds.
