THE CLASSIC EARLY 911

 

The New Porsche model, successor of the 356, was launched at the Frankfurt Motor Show of 1963 as the “901”. It was a 2+2 Coupé, with bigger dimensions and engines and it was to occupy a higher segment in the market.

Production started in Autumn 1964, and soon the name changed to the now immortal “911”. Its two litre six cylinder boxer engine developed just 130 hp.

In 1966 the 911S was launched, with a 160 hp engine, later to grow to 190. It had a better finish and richer equipment, and the new Fuchs wheels.

In 1968 the wheelbase was increased by 57 mm, to create more interior space and to enhance the ride and stability. The 911 had reached its maturity and was ready to grow and become more and more successful for another fifty years!

Today’s 911S is a rare unmolested car, which will allow the buyer to refurbish it as he or she wishes.

The vehicle is in excellent mechanical condition but for safety reasons, we advise the purchaser to have it checked over and to replace the fluids, filters and perishable elements.
