By 1973, more than a decade had passed in the Porsche 911 design, yet the basic styling seemed to never age. Porsche had a unique way of making subtle adjustments throughout the years, which made the car current and elegant throughout its lifespan. The last of the “middle-years” cars, the 1973 Porsche 911 featured several of these subtle changes including large black-rubber bumper guards and steel reinforcing door beams per federal mandate. The 911E also received distinctive “cookie-cutter” alloy wheels. The 1972 and 1973 model years also offered a new, larger 2,341cc engine, which would be called the “2.4L” engine despite it being closer to 2.3-litres. The 911T's sent to the United States also switched to the new K-Jetronic continuous fuel injection system from Bosch. With these power increases, the 2.4-litre cars also got a new, stronger transmission that also gave drivers a traditional “H” pattern for shifting gears, thus eliminating the dog-leg configuration.
Purchasing a 1973 Porsche 911 for your private collection or restoration project can be a very exciting time, yet can also be very trying.
