Exciting Early Globetrotting History
Significant & Worthwhile Early 911 to Restore as Delivered

The 911 L was only produced for the 1968 model year. The L stood for "Late" (as in late model), and was the most expensive of the 911s, since the 911S was not available in the US for 1968. Only 449 cars were built with this designation and production dates after October 1967.

This particular example, 3280588 was completed on March 1st 1968 in Silver (6851) over Black Leather (B) upholstery, fitted with a substantial selection of special optioned equipment such as: US equipment, exterior mirror, spare parts kit, rear window wiper, antenna, loudspeaker, engine noise suppression, 2 headrests - leather, tinted glass - all around, 100 liter gas tank, Recaro sport seats - leather, halogen fog lights, halogen spot light and Dunlop tires. Extraordinary to say the least. This very special 911 was purchased by Mr. H.K. Mills of Pontiac, Michigan, through Jabsen Motors of Hong Kong, famed for their introduction of Porsche to Asia in 1955. The Porsche Kardex for 3280588 states the 911 received multiple services from August to December 1968, starting with Scania-Vabis in Sweden to later repairs performed in Stuttgart. The 911 eventually made its way home to Michigan, U.S.A., where it would reside for the remainder of its life. After what we can only presume was an exciting life lived, the car was tucked away in garage storage for many years, until its recent discover in Michigan.

Presented as found, 3280588 offers an amazing opportunity for its next caretaker to restore back to former glory and delivery presentation. In addition to the abundance of factory installed equipment, the L would also receive a Golde manual sunroof and air conditioning, while retaining many of its original components (driver side front fender was replaced with a fiber glass fender previously). Now available for new ownership the first time, from our Houston, Texas showroom here is a remarkable find for the early Porsche 911 enthusiast.
