1973 Porsche 911 S Targa

[ translate ]

Chassis No. 9113310336
Engine No. 6330794
The year 1973 marked the end of a number of eras at Porsche. Notably, all variants of the 911 were about to receive a raft of stylistic and technical changes inside and out. Large “impact” bumpers, a redesigned interior, and less responsive engines were on the way in, and the classic, svelte “long-hood” 911 shape with its high-revving range of engines was on the way out. In fact, the final two years of 911 S models bound for the United States were the last to receive the highly responsive, mechanically fuel-injected (MFI) 2.4-liter flat-six.
This 1973 911 S Targa left the Porsche factory in Stuttgart, Zuffenhausen in May of 1973 finished in uncommon and optional Medium Ivory (132) over an equally rare Brown leather interior destined for the United States. According to the accompanying Porsche Certificate of Authenticity, the car was additionally optioned with tinted glass all around and Dunlop tires. When new, all 1973 911 S were endowed with the newly released Type 915 five-speed manual transmission, an aerodynamic front spoiler, 6x15 inch forged Fuchs wheels, aluminum front brake calipers, front and rear anti-roll bars, an upgraded front fender oil cooler, enhanced instrumentation, and a leather covered steering wheel as standard. Above and beyond the enhanced standard and optional features listed above, this well-ordered 911 S, was specified as a Targa — just one of 925 for that year — for an additional increase of $800 creating the most expensive 911 of its type available in the United States at $10,860.
Previous research indicates that this 911 S Targa was located in Washington state until approximately 2011 when it was purchased by a Naval Officer stationed in Monterey, California. It is said that it later returned to Washington approximately six years ago. Most recently, in March 2024 it received fresh CV boots, and oil and filter change with new lower valve cover gaskets, new sway bar bushings, fresh batteries, and a new voltage regulator. With a raspy, metallic mechanically injected engine note and the ever-popular long-hood styling, 1973 marks the end of a highly collectible era of 911, particularly for a freshly serviced 911 S Targa with its numbers-matching engine in a highly desirable and rare color combination!
