Behind the wheel of a 1974 Porsche 911

Bloomberg News got behind the wheel of a 1974 Porsche 911, owned by the Classic Car Club Manhattan, for an April 2013 story on vintage Porsches before the 50th anniversary of the original 911 vehicle.

Club director Mike Prichinello said he paid $32,000 in cash for the Porsche, which was modified with race shocks, a mechanical fuel injector and an aftermarket steering wheel and stick shift. The powertrain was also tweaked so that the 2.7-liter flat-six engine would produce 220 horsepower instead of the standard 150 horsepower.
