Porsche Of The Day: 1968 Porsche 911L Coupe Custom
This 1968 Porsche 911L Coupe, refinished in its original Tangerine color by SOS Customz in Oceanside, CA, received numerous modifications. Fiberglass 911R-style bumpers, taillights, center-fill hood, fenders, and quarter panels were added, along with blue side stripes, hood tie-downs, a Talbot-style mirror, louvered rear quarter windows, Lexan side windows with leather straps, and a louvered steel decklid with twin mesh engine grilles. It rides on 16” Fuchs-style wheels with Toyo Proxes R1R tires.
The interior features new black leather upholstery, custom dash cover, quilted lower dashboard, OMP bucket seats with plaid centers, and matching custom door panels. RS-style carpeting, black aluminum Rennline floorboards, Tangerine-painted instrument panel, three-spoke Sparco steering wheel, wooden 917-style shift knob, and a polished “Outlaw” badge adorn the cabin. The engine compartment and trunk are lined with black quilted leather.
Powered by a rebuilt 2.8-liter flat-six engine from a 1968 2.0-liter case, it includes ported 2.7-liter heads, 94mm JE pistons and cylinders, a 2.0-liter crankshaft, JTG Daugherty Racing camshafts, MSD ignition system, and Weber 46 carburetors. Paired with a custom fuel cell and 1981 911SC oil cooler, the power is transmitted through a 5-speed manual transaxle with a dogleg first gear. The front-end has disc brakes and suspension from a 1985 Carrera, while the rear has upgraded Koni shocks and vented rotors.
