1968 Porsche 911 L Targa
Classic Short Wheel Base Porsche
We recently found this car from its hiding place in Eastern Oregon. It had been sitting for many years. It was a
Special order Black (95043-L) car from the factory. Over its lifetime it was painted several colors, at least they
were good ones like Lime Green and Tangerine, and its current color Pearl.
1968 was a very unique year in Porsche history. It was the last of the SWB (Short Wheel Base) cars and was only
offered as two models in the United States, the Normal and L model. The Normal was the base model with 110 hp and
the L or Lux was the same as the European S model except with US emissions and 130hp, along with the S vented
brakes. The model designation also included the S trim interior package with the elephant skin pattern dash and
trim panels.
This car is an excellent restoration candidate because of the low production numbers of the L and Targa models.
This car has a 2.2 engine form a 71 in it according to the motor numbers. It does have a 5-speed 901 transmission.
It is a solid car, but will need everything gone through. We were able to start it up and get it running, but did
not drive the car as the motor was a bit noisy. The seats have been updated from a newer G series car. The alloy
Fuchs wheels are correct for its vintage. It also has correct Weber carburetors on it.
We have taken many detailed photos of the cars outside, inside and underneath. We do our best to represent the car
as it is.
We specialize in early Porsche 911s and are happy to assist with any of your needs. We have several 911s in
inventory or restoration.

A few pre-race notes and a lot of photos from the 24 Hours of Le Mans

Sat, 14 Jun 2014

The 82nd running of the 24 Hours of Le Mans is on.
Audi has won 12 of the last 15 events, the scion of Auto Union is trying to make it 13 this year. To do so, it will have to overcome a situation faced only three other times during its dominance of La Sarthe: underdog status. Toyota has won the first two races of the year and claimed pole for this race, the rumor being that this year it's Toyota's race to lose.
And then there's Porsche. It's been 16 years since the Stuttgart brand raced on the top rung at Le Mans, three years years since it announced its return, just a year since it acquired Mark Webber in a signing that wasn't subtle and a few months since we got eyes on the 919 Hybrid.

Preparing for Le Mans 2014 Porsche remembers 1971 and the 917 [w/video]

Sun, 07 Apr 2013

Porsche has given us another look back at its successes at the 24 Hours of Le Mans. This time it's 1971, the year that its 917 set records that haven't all been eclipsed. It's 45-kilogram magnesium tube frame was the lightest, Jackie Oliver set the fastest in-race lap with a time that still stands, and winning drivers Helmut Marko - the same Helmut Marko currently with Infiniti Red Bull Racing - and Gilles Lethem did so many laps that their distance wasn't exceeded until the Audi R15 TDI did it in 2010.
1971 was also the year of the "Pink Pig." With bodywork created by a French aerodynamics firm, the wider, rounder 917 earned the porcine moniker so Porsche painted it pink and labeled it with the cuts you'd get from a pig. Sponsor Martini was so miffed they demanded all Martini branding be removed. No one can remove the thousands of photographs taken of the car ever since. Enjoy that and more in the video below.

Seinfeld takes Seth Meyers out in the perfect Porsche

Sat, 13 Jul 2013

The latest episode of Comedians In Cars Getting Coffee features Seth Meyers of Saturday Night Live fame riding shotgun in what is a very special Porsche from host Jerry Seinfeld's collection: a 1973 911 Carrera RS 2.7. Seinfeld chose the "no-nonsense" sports car because he thought it fit his guest's personality (Meyers thinks motorcycles "are like the cigarette of transportation"), but we enjoy the chance to see one of these rare, über-valuable Porsches being driven on city streets - and in the rain, no less! What we don't like seeing is the Carrera RS being parallel parked behind a pick-up truck, though, fortunately, it seems that Seinfeld was able to avoid any front-end damage to the comparatively fragile Porsche.
Once at the coffee shop, the two comedians have a candid conversation about Meyers' time with SNL, from his early days on the show when he didn't think he was good enough to be a cast member to some of the high points in his career, such as SNL's "Really!?" segment that he performed in and how he became a writer for the show.
After coffee, when they're back in the car and Seinfeld opens up the throttle of the lightweight RS 2.7, he manages to eke out a big grin from Meyers - or maybe it was a grimace at the thought of driving in the rain on old tires. Whatever the case, be sure to watch the video below (and stay tuned until the end for a surprise).
