    Based on the mirrors I would guess this is a 75 model and not a 76...mine is 9306700186 and has the normal flag mirrors.
    Wonder when the sealed beams were replaced?

    Hard to know for sure as Japan '76 Turbos were also delivered with manual mirrors and H4s could have been added.

    2 very cool cars and Roadscholars start to get good experiences of the early 3,0 Turbo after 3 nice restored cars

    as I know, the Salmon is a very cool car!

    it is some shops in Europe that have done some more 75 cars I think? and very difficult to find shops that know all the special details on the 75 Turbo cars ok Ryans book is a big help today as Roadscholars point out ! just love the early cars and it is very nice that Roadscholars share this article with all Turbo guys.

    Mine has electric mirrors....I assume it was supplied as such but anything could have happened in 43 years.
    Anyone with more wisdom on this topic?

    Also strange that an official brochure shows the car with the ROW headlights and not the sealed beams?

    1975 Turbo 2 GOO enjoying the pop out rear quarter windows unique to 3-liter Turbos in 930 production. Along with the hand throttle, these are two create comforts I really enjoy in my ’75 that are not available in my ’79. Would be interesting to understand why Porsche deleted these in later production models.

    Scans of original 35mm negatives showing the 911 Turbo stand rotation at the 1973 Frankfurt IAA (never seen the light of day). Despite the thousands of visitors to the ’73 IAA, I’ve yet to see anyone unearth movie camera footage showing the 911 Turbo rotating on the stand. These frames were no doubt captured with a 35mm camera motor drive and show the stand’s clockwise rotation. When Ryan was writing his book, he was unable to find any interior photos of the IAA ‘73 Turbo as it would have been very difficult for anyone to photograph the interior while it was rotating.
