    Classic Rally Mallorca - lime 911

    Kept catching my eye on Top Gear at the weekend, when they filmed on Mallorca.  Lovely.

     Great picture. I love the old 911 colors.  Is this a 74 3.0L Carrera or is this a later car w/ the larger tail spoiler?

    IMO, the spoiler is not from a 74 3.0L. It didn't have a upward rim around the whole spoiler. It was just bend on the back end.  Judging by the wider back and the spoiler, this looks rather like a 930. However, the rearview mirror doesn't match.

    You are correct.  A 74 Carrera does not have flared front fenders like that either - it's a 3.3L Turbo (78-89 with intercooler) with Carrera graphics.

    If you look at the window surrounding trim it looks like silver coloured chrome. On Turbos and for sure on the 3.3 they were black Smiley

    I kept an early 80s 911 3.0 SC (1100kg, 204PS+15PS from free flow  SSI exhaust) until 2002.

    Very charming, robust and fast car but compared to modern cars every trip was a big risk. The biggest problems were how easy the brakes locked (pre-ABS) especially on damp surfaces and the handling at speed when there were cross winds. Air got in the totally open rear wheel arches lifting the car. The front spoiler and the rear wing are a must for those cars, although they spoil the classic look of the narrow bodied cars. Speeds of 200km/h were epic in all the sense of the word.

    I think it's Black, but the sun is reflecting in a way to make them look chrome.  Either way, something is not original (the silver mirror, the flared front and rear fenders, and the 930 3.3L Whale Tail never all went together from the factory).
