The 911

The Porsche 911 is one of the most iconic sports cars in the world. It was first launched in 1964. The variant was manufactured until 1972 after 81,100 vehicles were built. This is the basis of the modern Porsche 911. It had a distinctive slope and a small car feel that made heads turn wherever it went. Its silhouette has always been unique and undeniably Porsche. Since its introduction in 1964, there have been more than one million 911s sold. Unlike other long-production cars produced by other manufacturers, the Porsche 911 has been a continuous improvement in safety, power and manoeuvrability.


The 911 is a legend. For most people, this is the design that they most associate with Porsche. Until now, with the introduction of the Panamera, Macan and the Cayenne, the 911 look pervades these new models. The most important take away from the 911 series is that it evolved from a small air-cooled car. The current models have forked to a series of vehicles. During its evolution, it has incorporated technology and safety improvements. The air-cooled design later gave way to a water-cooled engine. Turbocharged options are available for all models. These innovations are signs of the times and milestones for one of the most successful car models in the world.

Overall, the Porsche 911 looks small, grips the road well, and has modern safety features. It is one of the best cars in the world.
