The Porsche brand is renowned for being innovative and for constantly working to achieve higher levels of success, whether through increases in power, performance or styling changes. One of the reasons the Porsche 911 saw such great success in the market and became the longest produced sports car in history, was because of this constant desire to be better. In 1972, the Porsche 911 would see its second major variation and yet another increase in displacement to 2.4L. With this change the 1971 Porsche 911 T would offer 140 horsepower, the 911 E would boast 160 horsepower, and the 911 S would give drivers 190 horsepower. During this time all U.S. models were using different versions of the Bosch mechanical fuel injection, and the oil tank was moved in front of the right rear wheel to improve weight distribution. A new transaxle was also introduced. Externally, the engine air-intake grills were now black instead of silver, and the mirrors changed shape from round to rectangular. All three models were available, once again, as either a Coupe or in Targa configuration.
When buying a classic Porsche 911, one of the choices you have is to go with either the early model short-wheelbase versions produced from 1964 to 1968 or to purchase the long-wheelbase versions from 1969 to 1973. Unless you’re interested in the earliest 911s for vintage racing purposes or historical restoration, the longer wheelbase models are often considered the most enjoyable to drive. Porsche’s ongoing improvements to the 911 in almost every year make newer cars more powerful and more pleasant to own, particularly if you’re interested in a 911 as an everyday driver. Secondly, there were a lot of 911 T models built, so you should have no problem finding a nice example at reasonable prices. On the other hand, the 911 S is considered the most valuable and rare. While the low prices of the 911 T may be tempting, repairs and restoration for these cars can be expensive, so always purchase the most complete and best condition model you can find within your budget.
