This 1968 Porsche 911L Coupe was acquired as a project car by its seller in 2014 and was subject to a full custom restoration that was completed in 2022. It has been modified with 911R-style bodywork finished in the car’s original Tangerine paint color along with a custom black leather interior with plaid seat centers, a quilted lower dashboard, and a painted roll bar. The car also features a Carrera front brake and suspension setup, rear Koni shocks, a replacement 5-speed manual transaxle with a dogleg first gear, and a custom 2.8-liter engine built by Bruckmann Racing of El Cajon, California. Accompanied by a Porsche Certificate of Authenticity and a collection of restoration records, this custom long-hood 911 is now being offered for auction by its seller out of California.
The exterior was refinished in its factory original color of Tangerine (6809) by SOS Customz of Oceanside, California, in April 2022 along with a protective coating for the wheel wells and undercarriage. It has been modified with fiberglass 911R-style bumpers and taillights as well as a fiberglass center-fill hood, fenders, and quarter panels. Other details include blue side stripes, hood tie-downs, a Talbot-style driver's side mirror, louvered rear quarter windows, lightweight Lexan side windows with leather straps, a windshield wiper delete, and a louvered steel decklid with twin mesh engine grilles. The car rides on 16” Fuchs-style wheels finished in satin black with Toyo Proxes R1R tires measuring 205/45 in front and 225/50 in the rear.
The interior has been completely redone with new black leather upholstery including a custom dash cover, a quilted lower dashboard, and OMP bucket seats with plaid centers and matching custom door panels. The cabin is lined with lightweight RS-style carpeting and features black aluminum Rennline floorboards, a Tangerine-painted instrument panel and roll bar, a three-spoke Sparco steering wheel, a wooden 917-style shift knob, and a polished “Outlaw” badge on the passenger side dashboard. The engine compartment and trunk are also lined with black quilted leather upholstery.
Power comes from a replacement flat-six engine which was rebuilt and enlarged to 2.8 liters by Bruckmann Racing in 2016. The engine is based on a 2.0-liter case from 1968 and features ported 2.7-liter heads, 94mm JE pistons and cylinders, a 2.0-liter crankshaft, JTG Daugherty Racing camshafts, an MSD ignition system, and Weber 46 carburetors with polished intake trumpets. The engine is paired with a custom fuel cell and an oil cooler sourced from a 1981 911SC. Power is sent to the rear wheels through a replacement Type 911/01 5-speed manual transaxle with a dogleg first gear and a 215mm clutch. The front-end features disc brakes and suspension from a 1985 Carrera and the rear uses upgraded Koni shocks and vented rotors. The seller notes an engine service was completed by Makellos Classics in October 2021.
This sale will include a Porsche Certificate of Authenticity, restoration records, and a clean California title.
