The Porsche 911 is probably the most popular and most typical sports car, not only in Germany where the car was developed and manufactured, but also all over the world. What's more amazing is that the Porsche 911 has taken care of this reputation for over 40 years now. It was, in fact, one of the few sport cars that have a long history of noteworthy performance. And while the current Porsche 911 may be a lot different than the first 911, it definitely carries with it its deep heritage of powerful performance.
The Porsche 911 was first introduced to the public in 1963 at the Frankfurt Motor Show, although the car was called then as the Porsche 901. It was initially aimed to replace the Porsche 356, although at the last minute, Porsche decided to sell it alongside the 356. Actual production and sales started only in 1964 and by then, the car was already called the Porsche 911 due to a legal protest made by Peugeot. (Peugeot owns the trademark for naming cars with a 0 in the middle).
The Porsche 911 was initially not well accepted by car buyers at the start, reasoning that the 911 could not be a real Porsche because of its large size. But after several years of production, Porsche lovers finally accepted the car and even made the car popular. In succeeding years, many various models of the Porsche were created, including various high level trims and models. Among the most known Porsche 911 trims were the Targa, Cabriolet and Carrera.
The Porsche 911 continues to be produced today. And despite the many differences that the original Porsche 911 has over the current model, it is still the real descendant of the original Porsche 911 of 1964. It is true that not a single bolt on the new Porsche 911 is similar to the original, but the new Porsche 911 shares the same powerful characteristics of the original Porsche 911, a heritage it has passed on to every generation of the Porsche 911. Today, the Porsche 911 is even more powerful with a style that tries to imitate the classic car while staying up to date.
