The 1972 model-year for the Porsche 911 would bring about yet another increase in engine size, this time from 2.2L to 2.4L. For the 1972 Porsche 911E, this meant upped power to 165 horsepower. There were a few changes that were directly attributed to this increase in displacement and power, which included increasing the stroke from 66mm to 70.4mm and leaving the bore unchanged. Piston crowns were also lowered to reduce compression, which allowed the car to run on low-octane fuel. This change helped the 911E meet the more stringent restrictions for emissions that were being passed in the United States at the time. Many enthusiasts and Porsche aficionados also believe that this model-year was when the Porsche 911 series really came of age. With an increase in power and the new (and now well-known) 915 transmission suited to extra power, the 1972 Porsche 911 is said to be the model in which the 911 really came of age. If you’re thinking about selling your 1972 Porsche 911E, you’ve come to the right place to learn valuable Seller’s Tips to help you find a buyer for your classic.


1972 Porsche 911E Seller’s Guide

One of the quirky characteristics that make the 1972 Porsche 911E interesting to potential buyers is the positioning of an oil-filler flap below the right-hand rear window. In an effort to improve the car’s handling, the oil tank had been moved from behind the right-hand rear wheel to in front of it. This change would lead to an external filler cap being located under the right-hand window. Interestingly, and quite disastrously, owners were known to accidentally put fuel in the oil-filler. The E-Series 911 cars are the only classic Porsche 911 models to feature that unique placement. For this reason alone, finding a 1972 Porsche 911E with an external oil-filler can be an exciting find for enthusiasts. This is just one of the characteristics you should advertise to potential buyers to bring interest to your particular classic.
