On September 12, 1963, Porsche presented the 901 model at the IAA in Frankfurt. When series production began the following year, the 901 became the 911, since Peugeot had protected all three-digit type designations with a zero in the middle. The design of the sports car, for which Ferdinand Alexander Porsche was responsible, provided the stuff of chrome dreams. It was not only at major international racing events, from the 24 Hours of Daytona to the Monte Carlo Rally, that the Porsche 911 left and continues to leave a powerful tire imprint. The pop cultural impact is also immense. Celebrities such as Kate Moss, Jerry Seinfeld, and Herbert von Karajan have come out as lovers. Steve McQueen used it unforgettably in the classic Le Mans. To do justice to such a horsepower icon, this volume takes a holistic approach to the 911 phenomenon, providing plenty of facts and anecdotes. It covers design and model history, including the most important technical data. Details, colours and wheel rims. The appearances on the movie screen and on the racetrack. In short, everything that makes the Porsche 911 a true legend.
For eternity. For all fans of the 911
