It is a bit strange that until now we haven’t made a post of a Porsche 911 G of this generation. The 911 has been for sale from 1973 to 1989! Of course, it was face lifted and modified along the way. But the base, body, and the chassis remained the same until it was replaced. By the Porsche 964 to 911. And that 6-Cylinder Boxer engine is still amazing; I will not go crazy over how amazing it think it is. But it is just great!

Porsche 911 G Review
The Porsche 911 G can easily be recognized by its harmonica bumpers. As people called them. I’m talking about the plastic extensions to the bumper. And they were used because of the rules in the United States. If you wanted your car to get approval there, you had to drive it into a wall at certain speed. And that shouldn’t cause visible damage. So that is why the plastic pieces were added to the bumpers. That’s the easiest way to recognize a 911 G.
The Porsche 911 G came to market in 1973. And from that point, it was continuously developed. Along the years it got bigger engines but also a broader body. It was necessary because of the ever increasing power and required broader tires on the back wheels to keep that power on the road. In the end the top model was the 930, which was the Turbo. Which was ridiculously wide, and because of that it is one of the most sought after 911s.
Porsche 911 G Specs
The car was made first in 1969 and then got updated in 1976 and this one is from 1977. The engine power was increased, it now has 165 horsepower, because this is the 2.7S But more importantly, the body was made from galvanised steel. Which made Porsche confident enough to give a 6 year warranty on the bodywork considering the lower probability of rust. The ventilation in the car was also enhanced. This was done by putting in two blowholes, instead of just the holes by the window and the feet. As I said, the 2.7 6-Cylinder had 165 horsepower. And that makes this quite a fast car, this model is obviously a lot lighter compared to the current ones. And certainly at high RPM’s it really fast.
This car has a 5-speed manual gearbox. And that is how it should be, pure driving. A lot of weight on the back and it is relatively light, so when you brake hard, you feel that the back wants to overtake the front. So when driving this car to the limit requires you to be very alert. It does not handle super easy. But if you drive this at about 80% there is nothing happening whatsoever. You can just drive this very relaxed. And I won’t say anything about the 6-Cylinder Boxer that sounds so amazing. I’m not doing that again; you already know what I think of it. I love that sound! Amazing!
We borrowed this 911 G model from Gina Classics. So you already know this is a great car, it is Sienna Brown or Savannah Red. Everybody uses a different name. I’ll just call it fall leaf brown because it fits the surroundings well. And the interior is peanut butter color as I like to call it, but officially it’s obviously beige. And I should say fake leather. But that is just easier to clean. On the top it has a nice sunroof. Fuchs rims, which are a must for any old 911. It’s just a very complete car. It makes me a little greedy, to be honest. But I can’t afford it, but maybe you can. The 911 model is a little less popular compared to other 911s. Because almost every other 911 model is increasing in value and is becoming investments. So this might be a model that is a little more affordable. But after all, it will be worth more money because it is an old 911! So maybe it will be a nice addition to your pension, or maybe you’ll just drive it a lot because you like it. See you on the next post guys!
