1972 Porsche 911s for sale
Fast Facts:

  • The engine block and transaxle case are magnesium, and the heads are aluminum. The injection manifold is made of plastic in 1972
  • The “S” model had a peaky power curve, with specially tuned intake runners, radical cam, and unique fuel injection timing
  • All models had a sophisticated dry sump oiling system with an oil cooler (the “S” model had two coolers)
  • Titanium connecting rods were an option at $903, but are incredibly rare – few people purchased it due to the astronomical price (relative to MSRP) with very little benefit to all but the dedicated racer
  • Air conditioning was an incredibly expensive option on these cars at $737. In comparison, the Targa option was only $726 (Car and Driver, 1972)
Key Model Year Changes:

  • Compression ratio had to be reduced to meet the new lower octane lead-free fuel, so engine displacement increased to 2.4 liters to make up for the lost power
  • First year of the type 915 H pattern transmission (no more dog leg)
  • First and only year where the oil tank was mounted ahead of the right rear wheel for better weight distribution(
  • An oil filler opening is located on the right-rear fender, exclusive to the 1972 model
  • Final year of the MFI fuel system on the entire model line. By 1974, the entire line will have switched to the new CIS (Constant Injection System, or K-Jetronic)
