Only produced for one year, the 911 L was introduced in 1968. The L is the name stood for ‘Late mode’. Featuring the same 130 horsepower as the original 911, the 911L was the most expensive of the 911s since the 911S wasn’t available in the US in 1968.
Only a total of 449 911L’s were ever produced, and they all featured production dates after October 1967. Unfortunately, all of this led to both engineering and mechanical failures in the transmission and front suspension. Stuttgart, Germany engineers re-engineered the problem areas and constructed the remaining 449 vehicles and then released them for sale.
Considered to be a very rare find, the 1968 Porsche 911L came with a soft rear window targa. The 911L joined the updated 911 range in 1967 which later would include the T and S models. Now featured standard 5 speed transmission the original came with a 1991cc air-cooled engine. A semi-automatic version was introduced in 1968. The top speed of the Porsche 911L was 131 mph. The Porsche 911L coupe 2.0 was considered to be a tuned-down US version of the Euro S model to achieve US emissions standards.
Finished in Gemini Blue metallic with a black leatherette interior, this is a nice driving 911L with the matching numbers 130bhp engine and 5 speed gearbox. A rare car, and with good investment potential for the future.
