By the time the 1973 model-year rolled around, the Porsche 911 design had seen more than a decade pass without any major change to its basic styling. The iconic shape of the 911 only saw very subtle adjustments to keep the car relevant and desirable in the luxury sports car scene. The 1973 Porsche 911 S, like all the models during this year, would see slight changes in keeping with this pattern. Large black-rubber bumper guards and steel reinforcing door beams per a federal mandate were some of the changes. The 1973 Porsche models also featured a stronger transmission to keep up with increases in power, which would now offer drivers the traditional H shifting pattern rather than the dogleg configuration that was offered on prior Porsche models. The 1973 911 S, now offering the 2.4L engine on the long wheelbase body, would be the last of what is considered the middle-years cars.
If you’re thinking about buying a 1973 Porsche 911 S, there are a few Buyer’s Tips to remember as you begin your search. Although Porsche 911s have tremendously durable powertrains, it is important to beware of bargains that seem to be good to be true. Hiring a third-party inspector to check out the originality, overall condition and mechanics of your prospective 911S will also be beneficial. Also look for updated or replaced chain tensioners, an original interior, decent paint and minimal rust. Rust tends to hide under the battery boxes in the front suspension pan, at the jacking points, and around and under the doors. These are just a few of the Buyer’s Tips you’ll want to keep in mind as your explore your options.
