1968 Porsche 911L 1 of 499

The Porsche 911L was a one year only model developed for the North American market, with only 499 cars built they remain a rare and exclusive model. Built for the 1968 model year the 911L was produced to fill a gap in the Porsche line up, the Stuttgart  companies 911S models could not pass the strict new emissions tests mandated for 1968. The L for ‘Luxe’ models were the top of the Porsche’s line up for 1968 and produced in limited numbers, some 499 cars were built.

11805061 is a matching numbers car built on 2nd of October 1967, a two owner car, the first owner from 1968 until 2012 when a complete engine rebuild and transmission overhaul was completed

During the 911L production run Porsche changed the material used for its engine cases from aluminum to magnesium,  the aluminum engines have fared better and are considered much stronger, this matching number motor is one the early aluminum cases
