Carrera 3.0 Production Numbers

A lot of people have been asking about the production numbers of the Carrera 3.0 – in terms of how many were RHD vs LHD – and how many were Targa’s versus Coupes. This is a work in progress, but hopefully this register will work to get a better overview, ultimately, of what is left out there.
1976 Carrera 3 Coupe 
Total 1093
RHD – 487
LHD – 606

1976 Carrera 3.0 Targa 
Total 479
RHD – 181
LHD – 298

1977 Carrera 3 Coupe 
Total 1473
RHD – 577
LHD – 896

1977 Carrera 3 Targa 
Total: 646
RHD – 281
LHD – 365

Total: 58
1976 – 26
1977 – 32

A lot of the sportomatic cars (originally identifiable with the 4th engine number designated 9 instead of 0, so a 1976 carrera 3engine number would be in the range of 6660001 to 6661385, whereas the sporto would be in the range 6669001-6669212.

I will post further information on the sportomatic later.

  1. Bert, I was informed my engine was replaced, by Porsche, at 30,000 miles/Km. My engine #, 6670618. Is my car still considered an authentic C3?

    • Hi Mill,

      Whilst your engine number checks out as a Carrera 3 engine number, it is therefore a matching year chassis + engine and therefore a genuine Carrera 3. Without the Certificate of Authenticity, I cannot verify whether your car is a “matching numbers” vehicle.

      Hope this helps!
