1968 Porsche 911 TR

To homologate the 1968 911 for competition purposes, Porsche began with the Spartan 911 T which were a full 54 kg lighter than their 'S' siblings. Porsche offered clients the opportunity to buy a 911 T outfitted with competition equipment directly from the factory, and the resulting cars have become known as the 911 T/R. They were built in low quantities to a range of specifications depending on their intended competition purposes. Most were fitted with either a standard 911 S engine with 160 horsepower or a 210 horsepower, twin ignition, 906 spec unit.

It is believed that 35 or fewer 911 T/Rs were built in 1968.
