1974 Porsche 911

For the 1974 model year, Porsche introduced the 'H' Series 911. They incorporated some major structural, mechanical, and cosmetic changes to bring their 911 models inline with stringent U.S. safety and emissions regulations. Perhaps the most visible change were the impact-absorbing aluminum bumpers in both the front and the back. To help absorb the impact, the inner structures at both end were reinforced. The hood was shortened, and the doors were reinforced internally. The front corner lights and reflectors were incorporated into the rubber bumper trim. Between the taillight assembles sat a new center reflector. Suspension upgrades, a larger fuel tank, and a single battery installed into the left-front corner of the trunk were additional changes. Inside, there were new high-backed seats.
