Porsche 911 Carrera 2.7 MFI up for auction

Published 03 October 2017

A Porsche 911 Carrera owned by a Porsche specialist is up for sale later this month. The current owner of the 1974 Porsche 911 Carrera 2.7 MFI is David Pattison of PCT fame. Offered for public sale for the first time at Silverstone Auctions on 21 October, the German sports car is estimated to fetch £100,000 to £120,000.

The original, duck-tailed, right-hand drive 2.7 Carrera MFI, one of 1011 examples made in 1974, was bought by David Pattison of PCT Porsche Specialists in 1982, having been originally supplied to the UK through Malaya garage in Sussex in January 1974.

G-series MFIs are in demand thanks to the Bosch fuel injected 2.7-litre engines, which are noted for their instant throttle response and howling soundtrack – things that were arguably lost in the switch to computer-controlled injection systems.

Previously owned by Nick Faure, a noted Porsche racer and factory driver of the day, the Porsche had covered just 59,960 miles from new when it changed hands, making Mr Pattison the car’s third owner. During his ownership of 35 years, Mr Pattison cherished and maintained the car himself at PCT, including subjecting it to a strip down and overhaul of both the engine and the gearbox. This matching numbers 911 has now covered a total of 121,939 miles.

'This Carrera is an adrenaline junkie’s delight!' explains Simon Corbett, PCT Cars. 'It drives and sounds fantastic - a proper driver’s car from the age of no servo steering or servo brakes.'

Today, finished in its original factory colour of Light Yellow with black pinstripe cloth and leatherette upholstery, it will be offered for public sale for the first time in its life when it goes to auction with a sale estimate of £100,000 to £120,000.

The car is accompanied by its certificate of authenticity, original log books, a file of invoices, MoT certificates, owner’s manual, original sales brochures, a copy of the original press release for the 1974 911, and an MoT up to March 2018.
