The original Porsche 911 was a luxury sports car made by Porsche AG of Stuttgart, Germany. The famous, distinctive and durable design was introduced in autumn 1963 and built through 1989. It was succeeded by a modified version, internally referred to as Porsche 964 but still sold as Porsche 911, as are current models.
Mechanically, the 911 was notable for being rear engine and air-cooled. From its inception, the 911 was modified by both private teams and the factory itself for racing, rallying and other types of automotive competition. The original 911 series is often cited as the most successful competition car ever, especially when its variations are included, mainly the powerful 911 derived 935 which won 24 Hours of Le Mans and other major sports car races outright against prototypes.
The Porsche 911 was developed as a much more powerful, larger and more comfortable replacement for the Porsche 356. The new car made its public debut at the 1963 Internationale Automobil-Ausstellung, better known to English speakers as the Frankfurt Motor Show.
It was initially designated as the “Porsche 901”, after its internal project number. However, Peugeot protested on the grounds that in France it had exclusive rights to car names formed by three numbers with a zero in the middle. So, instead of selling the new model with another name in France, Porsche changed the name to 911 and went on to sell the cars in 1964.
This car is a very desirable “S” model, with substantially more horsepower than the standard model. It us also notable for having a removable “soft” rear window, giving the feel of a convertible but with the safety of a coupe due to its intergrated Targa (Italian for shield) roll bar.
Repairing the chrome work and overhauling all mechanical components of the vehicle. Accompanying the vehicle is the appropriate documentation as well as extensive photographs of the restoration work. Wining best in class at the 2019 Cobble Beach Concours, this car is sure to continue to be highlighted as the finest Porsche 911S Targa on the market.
