The 911, produced in T, E, and S versions since the 1969 model year, received a major displacement increase across the range for 1972, up from 2,195 to 2,341 cc. This was reflected in their respective power outputs, which were now rated at 135 horsepower for the T, 165 for the E, and 190 for the top-line S model. Other big news for 1972 was the implementation of Bosch mechanical fuel injection across the 911 model range in the U.S. While the "E" designation, standing for the German word for injection (Einspritzung), may have becomes redundant, it was proof positive that fuel injection pioneered on the 911 E was the future. As expected, the ever-popular Targa body continued to be available on all three models for an additional $726.

According to its Porsche-issued Certificate of Authenticity, this U.S.-market 1973 Porsche 911 E Targa was originally finished in Sepia Brown with Brown Leatherette upholstery and factory-equipped with the following: Forged Alloy Wheels, Stabilizer Bars - F/R, Sport Seats - L/R, Comfort Equipment, Manual Antenna, Noise Suppression, Tinted Glass All Around, and Pirelli Tires. Now wearing a wonderful, period-correct Signal Yellow exterior, its impressive originality is underscored by its U.S.-specification impact bumpers, lights, and trim, as well as its Bosch mechanical fuel injection (MFI) system in the engine compartment. Complementing the vibrant exterior is a charming Brown Leatherette interior with desirable Pepita houndstooth seat inserts in the equally desirable Sport Seats and correct leather-wrapped steering wheel.

This 911 E Targa is understood to have been dispatched to a Minnesota dealership where it was purchased new by Wyn Stevens of Minneapolis. By the early 2000s, the Targa had been acquired by Aventura Motors of Southhampton, New York, where it received mechanical and cosmetic attention including a renewal in its current Signal Yellow over Brown Leatherette and Pepita houndstooth finishes. While in the care of a New York-based enthusiast owner, the Targa returned to Aventura in 2012 for a major mechanical service which reportedly included resealing the engine, servicing the fuel tank, and overhauling the brakes and suspension. It should be noted that, according to the Porsche-issued Certificate of Authenticity, the current engine is the original, matching-numbers unit. Acquired by the consignor in 2015, the car is said to have undergone further servicing under current ownership including mounting four new Mastercraft Stratus AS tires on its Fuchs alloy wheels. Presented in an exciting color combination, this handsome matching-numbers 911 E Targa would be a wonderful addition to any Porsche collection in need of a vintage 911 with open-topped appeal.
