About Porsche 911 Series

The seminal Porsche vehicle that helped elevate the automaker into the mainstream, the 911 has been around in some capacity since the early 1960s. When it first arrived, the Porsche 911 was offered as a coupe, convertible, and targa-top. Ferdinand Porsche began sketching the model in 1959, based partly on the 356. In four short years, the 911 premiered in the lineup with the intention of replacing the previous 356. The 911 initially showed off a flat-six boxer engine that was rear-mounted and air-cooled, which would become the model's calling card. The engine was mated to a four or five-speed manual transmission and inside the model were four seats (essentially, the 911 was not a four-seater, however, but instead, a "2+2"). 1967 welcomed in the Targa 911, which displayed a stainless steel roll bar. 1972 ushered in the 2.4L era of the 911E and 911S (along with fuel injection). During this period, the 911T used a carburetor outside of the US, but a year later switched to a Bosch fuel injection system. The fourth generation was released in 1974 and excluded the 911T and 911E. However, the Carrera RS was introduced, showing off a 2.7L engine and stylish energy-absorbing bumpers.

By the late '70s, Porsche was facing the oil crisis head-on by increasing engine displacements in the 911S and 911SC (with the latter pumping out 180 horsepower). Turbo versions were increased to 3.3L, throwing out a bold 253 horsepower. However, before long, Porsche was set to release the 928, a water-cooled V8-powered vehicle. Instead of replacing the 911 with the 928, Porsche instead discontinued the Turbo in North America (although Canada would get the Turbo back in 1981). Sixth-generation 911s made their way onto the street for 1984. The 911SC was scratched from the lineup and replaced by the 911 Carrera as the only 911 available in the US. It was equipped with a 3.2L flat-six which got credit for up to 200 horsepower. 1986 welcomed back the Turbo, which utilized a 3.3L 282-hp engine directed through a four-speed manual transmission. In 1989, the Speedster entered the roster inspired by the 1950's-era 356 Speedster. The eighth-generation of the Porsche 911 was introduced for 1995 and would be the last of the air-cooled engines. A glass-topped targa variant was made available while the Turbo was increased to 400 horsepower and equipped all-wheel drive.

Towards the end of the 1990s, Porsche got to work on the ninth-generation 911, which set sail in 1999. The most notable change was the vehicle's first-time use of a water-cooled flat-six engine. The Porsche 911 parts were also restyled and Porsche's more recent superstar, the Boxster was resembled. Performance for the 911 saw a hearty boost, as the engine produced up to 300 horsepower. Turbo 911s pumped out an even bigger 415 hp. 2005 saw Porsche order a slight redesign, as the front of the car was given a restyled front-fascia, larger wheels, and an optional active suspension. Models such as the Turbo, GT2, and GT3 were temporarily removed from the 911 lineup however, the Carrera 4 and Carrera 4S entered the lineup in 2006. A year later, the Targa, GT3, Turbo, and limited-edition GT3 RS were introduced. Porsche redesigned the 911 parts yet again for 2009. This time around, a bevy of features were introduced, included Porsche's new dual-clutch automated manual transmission (PDK), ventilated seats, Bluetooth, and an improved suspension. Versions of the 911 consisted of the Carrera, Carrera S, Cabriolet, Targa 4, GT3, GT3 RS, Turbo, and the GT2.
