Porsche 911 Carrera Turbo 2.7 Coupé 1974
Porsche presented it to Louise Piëch on the occasion of her 70th birthday on 29 August, 1974. It was shown on 1974 Frankfurt Motor Show. After Porsche completed its development programme, they carried out a number of modifications ahead of the car’s handover to Louise Piech. The changes included new red leather upholstery with red and blue MacLaughlan tartan seat centres and matching door cards. Fresh red carpet and a black headliner were installed along with a Blaupunkt four-speaker stereo plus electric antenna and a voice recorder and tartan side decals matched the seat centres.
Soon afterwards, front and rear spoilers were added whilst, for practicality, the experimental engine was replaced with a standard 3.0L turbocharged motor from the 911 930.The badge on the engine lid reads “Carrera” instead of “Turbo”. A plaque on the glove compartment bears the initials LP and the inscription: Turbo-Porsche No.1, Stuttgart-Zuffenhausen, 29. Aug. 1974.
