1968 was a big year for the Porsche 911 brand, as three new variations appeared: two for Europe, one for the United States, and both part of the world-renowned 911 “A-Series.” The American model was the 1968 Porsche 911 L, which replaced the standard issue 911 just after the model year began. The “L” stood for “luxury” and attached to what was basically a 911S with a normal-tuned engine. This was an up-market move for Porsche, as it sold for more than $600 higher than the previous year’s 911. Modifications had to be made to satisfy new safety and emissions standards brought about by the United States. These modifications included the add-on of side marker lights, which today helps distinguish U.S. models from others. Europe also received a 911L as well as a low-priced 911T or “Touring” model. Trimmed to Porsche 912 standards, the 911T offered 110hp, reduced compression, cast-iron rocker arms and cylinders, no crankshaft counterweights, steel wheels, and a lighter front anti-roll bar. Some of the recognition tips for a 1968 Porsche 911 include matte black wiper arms, rubber covered knobs on the dash, and (on U.S. models only) the 911s had tacked-on rectangular side reflectors in the front and back, a two-piece dash pad, and a rear-view mirror that was ceiling-mounted and of the break-away type.
