What about the 911L?
The T name endured from 1968 until 1973, when it was replaced by the G-series car simply designated 911. The S was in production a little longer, from 1967 to 1977, until it was replaced by the SC. The 911L, however, lasted for only one model year: 1967 to 1968.
Like many cars of its era, the L was essentially a response to US emissions legislation. With the S unable to meet new standards, Porsche used air pumps to detoxify exhaust gases from the 2.0-litre engine. Dual-circuit brakes – another requirement for the US market – were fitted, in this case the ventilated discs from the S.
The L also matched the now Europeonly S when it came to standard equipment, albeit with some detail differences. Exterior tweaks were limited to push-button door handles and polished aluminium window surrounds, while inside Porsche ditched the wood dashboard trim and added black bezels for the gauges. Us-spec cars also have side marker lights: orange at the front and red at the rear.
Buyers could choose from Coupe or Targa body styles (the latter with a removable plastic rear window, fixed glass was optional), plus manual or Sportomatic gearboxes. A small number of special-order lightweight 911Ls were also built for racing.
Just 1,603 examples of the L left Zuffenhausen before its replacement, the 911E, arrived in 1969. This swapped Weber carburettors for Bosch mechanical fuel injection, boosting power by 10hp to 140hp. Weight was also cut by 60kg, shaving the 0-60mph time from 8.4sec to 7.6sec. The E designation lasted until 1973.
