For the Porsche company the fifteen years from 1974 to 89 were classic years, and in many ways the best of times, and the worst of times. Arguably they produced many of their most exciting cars during this era including the 930 Turbo, the stunning 935 Turbo racer, the 4wd 959 and a string of racing sports cars which won the Le Mans 24 hour race 10 times in the period. The 3.2 Carrera was a major sales success and yet the company nearly foundered in 1989 as sales collapsed following the 1987 stock market crash.
The 911’s produced during this period are distinguished by their extended impact bumpers grafted onto the classic 911 shape to accommodate the newly introduced US market 5mph crash requirements in 1974.
The objectives of the Register are to be a point of contact for members who own 911’s from this era be they coupes , convertibles or Targas . and also to be a source of technical knowledge about the 911’s of this era and finally to promote the virtues of the model to the Club as a whole.
The Register runs Breakfast Runs and gatherings and circulates news and technical info by email to Register members. Members who are interested in supporting the Register can send me an email with their contact and car details
