Porsche achieved more sports success in 1968 than ever before in its twenty-year history. This brings an advertising effect that can't be undervalued for a small company selling such expensive cars. The best-selling Porsches are the 912 and the 911 T.
For the model year 1969 Porsche offers four types, each available as a coupé or Targa version. They have in comparison to the previous models a slightly longer wheelbase, different taillights and new bumpers. From technical point of view they did not undergo any major changes. The former 911 L is now replaced by the 911 E which uses a fuel injection instead of a carburettor. The 911 S will also be supplied with petrol injection from now on. All this effort is to meet the recent emission standards in the USA, which is a very important market for Porsche.

Moc silników modeli 911 E i 911 S wzrosła dzięki zastosowaniu wtrysku paliwa Bosch.
