The 1973 Porsche 911 T would be the last of the 911 T models, while the 1973 model-year would also be the end of what enthusiasts call the middle-years cars. Several changes happened during this year, including the fender-mounted oil-filler neck being removed, and the oil tank moving back to its original position in the engine compartment. (In 1972 it had been moved in front of the right rear wheel to improve weight distribution.) While it is uncertain why Porsche moved the oil tank back, enthusiasts at the time alleged that some owners were putting gas in the oil tanks, as the fender-mounted oil-filler door resembled a gas-cap door. Whatever the reason, it would not be moved back in front of the right wheel for another 25 years, when the Carrera 4 was introduced. Doors also received reinforced side beams thanks to new U.S. safety requirements, as well as inertia-reel seat belts, and the exhaust system was now manufactured of stainless steel. Mid-year in 1973, the U.S. version of the 911 T received an engine with a new Bosch Continuous Injection System (CIS) fuel injection the first production application of CIS. Often referred to as the 1973.5 911 T, it produced 140 horsepower as before, while the 911 E and 911 S continued to use the standard Bosch mechanical fuel injection.
