PORSCHE 911 2.4 T "OIL CAP"-1972 (1972)




PORSCHE 911 2.4 T "OIL CAP"-1972
In 1971 the 911 underwent a further increase in displacement, which was accompanied by further important evolutions.
The displacement was raised to 2,341 cm³ (hence the acronym 2.4), with three power levels: 130 hp for the "T" (with carburetors), 165 hp for the "E" (mechanical injection) and 190 hp for the most sporty "S" (mechanical injection).
With the 2.4 the compression ratio was lowered to allow operation with unleaded petrol.
With the increase in power and torque, version 2.4 introduces a new and more reliable transmission, called “type 915”. This new gearbox, of a more traditional type, was provided exclusively with the classic pattern of the first gear in the upper left.
In 1972 an important modification was made to improve the stability of the 911. To improve weight distribution, in fact, the oil tank was placed between the door and the rear right wheel arch, with an external filler flap. Unfortunately, this solution was only used for a year, since many gas stations confused the new cap for the petrol cap.
These very rare versions are identified as “Oil Cap” and are highly sought after by Porsche collectors.
The 911 2.4 used in racing met with great successes, often with results equal to cars with much higher power and cubic capacity. This demonstrates the incredible balance evolved on the car.
