About

The SWB 1968L is as close to an 'S' as you can get - without the large premium.

This was the year that Porsche couldn't sell the 911S in America due to the new 'smog' laws. Their solution? Replace the 'S' motor with a normal one.

My solution? Build a new motor to 'S' specs!

1968 911L 

This car was purchased and privately imported from the US in 2008 with the view to build a fun road and tarmac rally weekend car. 

 

It is a LHD US delivered car with VIN 11805379, has full Australian registration comes with the coolest plates available  -SWB 911

While the car was prepared with tarmac rallying in mind, it does perform well on the circuit and is very entertaining on the road! 

 

It is a nice, early SWB 911 but is not a concourse,  matching numbers car.

If you are looking for a trailer queen or a car just to polish, it won't be suitable.

Perfect though for a Gruppe R type road car or classic Targa rally special. 

 

And you won't stress about the first stone chip.
