We love the 1976 Porsche 911! Porsche’s lineup remained much unchanged from the previous model year. The 911 base models were available in a Coupe or Targa, and offered 150hp. The 911S model was also available in a Coupe and Targa and offered 175hp in Europe, 165hp in the United States, and 160hp in California (due to modifications needed to comply with strict emissions standards of the time). The 1976 911 Carrera, also offered in a Coupe or Targa, offered 210hp in Europe and either 160 or 160hp in the United States. Perhaps the downfall of these beautiful models was the addition of an increased 2.7-litre engine, which boosted engine bay temperature and nearly strangled breathing. As a result, head studs would pull out of the crankcase (because of thermal expansion of the cylinders) and destroyed valve trains. What resulted was an engine with an average life of approximately 50,000 miles. Many late 1970’s models with the 2.7-litre engine have either seen replacement engines or changes made to assist in cooling.

Did you know that the 5-blade fan can be replaced with an 11-blade fan to add in cooling? Did you know some 1971 911s offer additional, aftermarket oil coolers to help extend the life of the 2.7-litre engine?
