1968 Porsche 911L
A good-looking, sorted and fun early 911

The one-year only 911L combined the standard model’s drive train with the brakes, suspension and instrumentation otherwise found on the 911S. As with many examples, this tangerine sunroof-equipped car initially went to the US, where the 1968 911S was not sold, before more recently coming to the UK after a short interval in continental Europe.

While in Europe, the car went through a very comprehensive and well-documented bodywork restoration. At the same time, the matching numbers engine was uprated with S-spec components - to include pistons and cylinders, cams and carburettors. A period-and model-correct dog-leg gearbox was already present. Visually, the car has been given a mild sports purpose make-over, with a slightly lower ride height, through-the-grille spots, side stripes and an encouragingly raspy twin-exit exhaust. Inside are sports seats and a Prototipo-style steering wheel.

We have had the car thoroughly checked-over and detailed in its time with us. The result is a good-looking, sorted and fun early 911 at a more sensible price than many.
