As the 1970s progressed, the Porsche 911 was further refined to meet federal safety and emissions standards. Larger, sturdier bumpers were added in 1974, marking the 911's first appearance change since introduction. At the same time, Porsche again upped engine displacement, this time to 2.7 liters. A revised lineup demoted the S to mid-range status, but a Targa version was still available.
The 1974 Porsche 911 had soft "safety" control knobs and a larger fuel tank.
The 1974 Porsche 911 Targa came with a new rigid removable roof panel.
The top-line Porsche 911 for '74 was a new Carrera, with looks inspired by the RS.
