The Porsche 911

The Porsche 911; undeniably the greatest sports car ever made. Although it could have been a slightly different story, as the car was originally unveiled to the world at the 1963 Frankfurt motor show as the Porsche 901.

The Porsche '901' was the successor to Porsche's first ever car, the 356. It wasn't until September 1964 that Porsche renamed the 901, to the now legendary '911', after Peugeot trademarked numbers with '0' in the middle.

With the Porsche 911 name fully established, this unbelievable sports car has gone on to create quite a name for itself. With the upcoming launch of the eight-generation Porsche 911, we take a look back at the legendary history of the world's greatest sports car.
