Following the success of the 1973 Carrera RS model, the Carrera name continued on Porsche's top-of-the-range model, and a limited number of high-performance Carreras emerged from 1974-1976 for European/ROW markets. These "Euro Carreras" as they came to be known retained the legendary Type 911/83 2.7-liter, 210bhp engine with Bosch mechanical fuel injection (MFI) - the same engine as fitted to the legendary 1973 Carrera RS 2.7 homologation special. They had the benefit of being offered in the fully trimmed new style 911 body shell, with a specification more akin to the M472 'Touring' designation of more opulently equipped 1973 RS's. In total, 1,633 Euro-spec MFI Carrera coupes were built during this limited run - total production figures just slightly higher than the original 1,582 1973 Carrera RS Coupes.

9114600945 was sequentially the 934th of just 1,011 examples built for the 1974 model-year.
91st to last produced – completed under a special wish order issued in May of 1974.

The original order was placed by Mitsuwa Motors, the official Porsche Distributer and main Service Center for Porsche in Japan. Delivery took place in June of 1974 and the car was road-registered later that month on Japanese plates "330 911"
The original order requested a ROW (Rest of World Market), European version Carrera 2.7 MFI with left-hand drive steering. The order further specified the exterior color of Silver Metallic with negative Carrera graphics and the headliner to be black with cloth-inserted sport seats, both left and right. Because it was built so late in the production run, this Carrera 2.7 MFI was delivered new with the 'whale tail' rear spoiler, rather than the previous year's 'duck tail' spoiler.

A long list of options was ordered, and it was specifically requested that no sunroof would be fitted. Among the options were Japanese market equipment with 300km/h speedometer, power windows and sideview mirror, air-conditioning, Koni shock absorbers instead of Boge, fog lights and Dunlop tires. With these many individual options, this is by far one of the most lavishly equipped examples completed.

The Porsche remained carefully conserved for what is believed to have been single individual ownership for more than 40 years, before entering the U.S. in 2015. The car has since been treated to a comprehensive cosmetic restoration, followed by a 2021 extensive mechanical restoration.

2021 restorative efforts included new Pirelli Cinturato P7 tires, Koni shocks, brake and transmission flush, as well as a complete engine reseal. This addressed all new gaskets, bearings, studs, seals and rings - along with all new associated consumables and auxiliary equipment. The engine block received engine stud work by Protomotive, new throttle bodies by TRE Motorsports, cylinder head refreshment by H Squared Racing, fuel injection work by Injector RX, engine tin restoration by Cutting Edge Powdercoating, with final assembly and installation by DriverSource.
