Really nice 911 and video. So Cal is always a great place to run and film these cars. One observation is that Spike over-clutched while shifting, early in the video. We have all done this at some point in our driving but spike did it on film!
I liked it quite a bit, so maybe it isn’t the rarest of rare Porsches, but a cool car, cool owner, interesting backstory, solid Petrolicious video! I think the comments on this one are indicating that as an audience we are getting pretty spoiled by this site, keep up the good work!
The breadth of this series is nothing short of amazing.
Lovely video. Spike and Petrolicious are fantastic storytellers in both video and word. The provenance of the car helps too. Thanks.
double thumbs up for:
protoagonist + photography + sound+ setting + story
A great big HUH?
My first Porsche was a 911L
No 911Ss for 1968 went to the USA, it was the smogged (with backfiring air pump) for 1968 only 911L (luxury).
They are NOT race cars
so basically you guys are calling him a liar.
Wasn’t the 911 T/R the factory race car with homologation, in 1968? Spike’s car, however pretty, is an “L” with a roll bar, open exhaust, and some interior trim removed, enhanced by an interesting ownership record.
Whether of not this one really is that car, it was a basic 911L with some MINOR changes for racing
Another great video – Petrolicious seems to excel when a Porsche is involved.
Yeah, great video and car.
I think its great that the best noise is just simply the engine performing.
No gimmicks required to make motoring music.
Great film as always, although me being me would have much rather heard about Spike’s Ferrari 365GTC4 (as seen in his Instagram feed) than the 911 with the interesting history.
What a lucky lad. Spike buys a used car on a car lot.
It turns out to be something with huge provenance.
What are the odds of that ever happening again?
Nice production Valkyr/Petro
