A modern classic example of Porsche's long-running 911. Two years after the original 911 Coupe's introduction, the convertible 911 - the 'Targa', named in honor of Porsche's numerous victories in the Sicilian classic - arrived in 1966. The Targa sporting a hefty roll-over bar to protect the occupants in the event of an inversion, continued to be popular well into the 1990s, sharing countless mechanical and styling developments with its closed cousin along the way.
For the 1976 model year, Porsche introduced the Carrera 3.0 with wide rear flares, optional whaletail, and a variety of other luxury options. The Carrera 3.0 was fitted with a variation of the 930 Turbo's 2994 cc engine without the turbo. The engine (dubbed the 930/02) featured K-Jetronic CIS. It developed 200 hp in contrast to the older Carrera 2.7 MFI model's 210 hp. The crankcase and gearbox housing were made of aluminium rather than magnesium for improved reliability.
The new engine, which featured bigger intake and exhaust valves, produced greater torque allowing the Carrera 3.0 to achieve the same performance as the previous Carrera 2.7, 0–100 km/h in 6.1 seconds and 0–200 km/h in 27 seconds. Both versions boasted a top speed of approximately 236 km/h (147 mph). Weight increased marginally by 45 kg (99 lb) to 1,120 kg (2,470 lb).
The 911 Carrera 3.0 was produced in both targa (1,125 examples produced) and coupé (2,566) versions. The Carrera 3.0 was available with manual gearbox (type 915) with 4 or 5 speeds as well as 3-speed automatic transmission (called the Sportomatic). Production totals were 3,691 manual cars and 58 Sportomatic cars.

BACKGROUND AND HISTORY:
Porsche engineers don’t make mistakes very often, but the 2.7-liter 911s built between 1975 and 1977 were plagued with engine problems when new. In 1978, Porsche put those problems behind them with the introduction of the brilliant 3.0 liter 911SC. Porsche now finally mated a body that was capable of lasting indefinitely with an engine that was capable of lasting nearly that long. Well maintained 911SCs are capable of 300,000 miles between rebuilds.
Power was up from the 2.7 liter 911 as well, although not by an enormous amount and the SC was good for a 0-60 run of about 6.3 seconds. Leather, air conditioning, power mirrors and forged alloy wheels became all but standard. The last year of the car saw the addition of the first full convertible Porsche since 1965. It wasn’t quite yet the perfect 911, though. Timing chain tensioners and exploding airboxes would continue to plague the 3.0 liter cars. By now, though, enthusiast owners have updated these trouble spots on most cars and the 911SC remains an excellent, surprisingly affordable choice for a first Porsche.
