1968 Monte Carlo Rally – Porsche 911T coupe group 3.
First and second place PORSCHE 911 T
At the beginning of 1968 the Range was extended. The base model was 911 T (Touring) with power supply by carburettors and lighter engine and 110CV. Porsche 911 L still had the carburettor engine with 130CV, but also more refined finishing. Porsche 911 S also had weber carburettors and offered 160CV. The wheel base was extended by 6cm, from 221cm to 227cm. For the first time all the models were available both in the coupe version and the “targa” version with removable deck.

Only few cars have been in production for 53 years, and those very few ones which survive without any considerable alteration, neither in design nor in technical features, tend to look visibly outdated. That is not the case for Porsche 911, which has become one of the most coveted sports cars ever manufactured. So much so that its prestige has grown over time. This enviable fate is due to various improvements which have been made by a team of purists who took into account budgetary restraints and at the same time envisaged technical perfection as their goal, which is confirmed by the sports competitions won by this car. Porsche regards circuit races and rallies as an essential outcome for

the work of the wonderful testing centre of the factory, since the evolution of both racing cars and custom-built models is carried out by the same engineers.The first 911 model was presented at the 1963 Frankfurt Motor Show. It was a car with a highly individual design, characterized by an engine with six horizontal cylinders and an air-cooling system, embossed in the back. The result is a practical car for everyday use and suitable for sport races, probably the most eclectic one ever driven in rallies and circuits all over the world.
Both in the case of cars similar to the series or modified according to sports rules in force, Porsche 911 has in fact won at least once all sports cars competitions. It has proved at ease both on the snowy roads of the Monte Carlo Rally and on the desert tracks of the Paris-Dakar, in the streets of the Targa Florio Rally and on the Daytona circuit, and also on the 24 Hours of Le Mans, all the competitions which are now included in its record.
