The last year of production for the Porsche 911T would be 1973. This year would also mark the end of what enthusiasts call the middle-years cars. A few minor changes would happen during this period that can help you identify if you’re looking at an authentic 1973 Porsche 911T Coupe. For example, the fender-mounted oil-filler neck was removed and the oil tank moved back to its original position in the engine compartment. (Previously it had been moved in front of the right rear wheel to improve weight distribution.) Interestingly, legend has it that owners were putting gas in the oil tanks, as the fender-mounted oil-filler door resembled a gas-cap door, and thus Porsche moved the oil tank back to its original position. Mid-year in 1973, the 911T Coupe models headed to the United States would also boast engines with a new Bosch Continuous Injection System (CIS) fuel injection, which would be the first production application of CIS. This version is often referred to as the 1973.5 911T and produced 140 horsepower at a time where other models were losing power thanks to new emissions regulations.

Quite a few of the 911T models were built, so you should not have too hard of a time finding a model in the condition you’re looking for. However, you should always have any potential purchase inspected by a third party Porsche mechanic to ensure you understand the overall condition of the classic. On these models from the early 1970s, you’ll also need to do a thorough inspection for rust, as rust proofing measures were not put into place until the late 1970s. In addition to taking these steps, be sure to authenticate the Porsche by matching the chassis and engine numbers to Porsche records. In many cases, you can even request a Certificate of Authenticity from Porsche. There are also numerous forums and registries that can provide valuable information regarding the 911T Coupe.
