Following several other displacement increases, the 1972 model-year brought about yet another displacement increase to 2.4L and an increase in horsepower thank in conjunction to the use of fuel injection. This came at a time where most performance cars where stagnant. The last of what are often considered the middle-years cars, the 1973 Porsche 911 S Soft Window Targa and Coupe models also boasted new black-rubber bumper guards and steel reinforcing door beams thanks to a federal safety mandate handed down by the United States. During this year, the 911 would receive a stronger transmission to keep up with all these increases in power. The transmission would now offer drivers the traditional H shifting pattern, rather than the original dogleg configuration. Just like its predecessors, despite efforts by Porsche to galvanize the floor pan and coat it in PVC, rust continued to be an issue throughout this time.
