Porsche 911 Price to be announced
All models from the famous German factory are now powered by the 2.7-litre air-cooled rear-mounted six-cylinder engine which operates happily on 91 octane (two-star) petrol! The horizontally-opposed motor has enormous low-speed power as well as a highly impressive maximum output, and low exhaust gas emissions. The models come as 911 (150 b.h.p.), 911S (175 b.h.p.), and Carrera (210 b.h.p.). All engines are fuel-injected, and the Targa version of the Carrera is new for 1974. New front-and-rear energy-absorbing bumpers will cope with 5 m.p.h. impacts without body damage.
