While the 1973 Porsche 911E Soft Window Targa was nearly identical to the 1972 model, there are a few small differences that can help buyers identify your particular model as a 1973. First, on the earlier models an oil-filler was positioned on the right-rear wing of the car, similar to a gas-filler. On this particular model-year, that oil-filler was moved back to its traditional spot under the hood. While unable to be seen, the 1973 Porsche 911E also gained strengthening beams in the doors to give better protection in side collisions. Visually, buyers will also notice that your 1973 Porsche 911E Soft Window Targa features headlight and taillight surrounds, as well as front quarter grilles that were now finished in matte black rather than chrome. Wheels were also a bit different, as the 1973 911 offered cast aluminum wheels known as “cookie cutter” models. Part of the F-Series of production, this was also the last of the short-lived 2.4L 911E models.


1973 Porsche 911E Soft Window Targa Seller’s Guide

When it comes time to sell your 1973 Porsche 911E Soft Window Targa, the most important step you can take is preparing yourself to help buyers authenticate your particular model as an original. To do this, you can give buyers access to both the engine and chassis numbers, and you can help them compare these numbers to Porsche records. To take it a step further, you can contact Porsche for a Certificate of Authenticity. Mentioning some of the characteristics above that are particular to the 1973 model-year should also help give the buyer confidence. Next, you’ll want to give as accurate an assessment of condition as you can. Buyers will be looking for rust, areas of previous accident damage, and overall condition. If your model is in driving condition, do not hesitate to let serious buyers perform a pre-purchase inspection with a qualified Porsche mechanic. These are just a few of the Seller’s Tips that the Alex Manos team recommends.
