The Porsche 911 is the exception that proves the rule ‘to all good things comes an end’. This contemporary and luxurious, yet sporty, German sportscar was released in 1963. To this day, they are still being produced in large numbers. Also a range of variants has been developed to offer a tailor-made product range. Although the 911 has been refined over the decades, the basic design – which is recognisable and thus excellently done – has generally remained unchanged. This pragmatic and contemporary approach only Porsche could ever succeed in.

The 911 is the successor to the Porsche 356 and was designed by Ferdinand Porsche - the grandson of Porsche’s founder – and presented at the Frankfurt Auto Show in the autumn of 1963. In 1964, the first models were delivered to customers, and due to its great success, the 911 was soon expanded: a cheaper 912, a faster 911S and the rollbar equipped and extremely safe convertible Targa were released. This Targa was named after a Sicilian race that was year by year won by Porsche.

Initially, this car would be called the Porsche 901, but Peugeot became the headwind as their models were named by a three-digit number with a 0 in the middle. ‘Don’t worry’, said Porsche and they replaced the 0 with a 1. The evergreen Porsche 911 was born. After that, there was still Porsche cars built that were named with a three-digit number with a 0 in the middle, however those were exclusively intended for racing and circuit purposes, not for public roads.

Undoubtedly, the 911 has been modified over the years; as durable a design may be, times change, and cars do too. Porsche has always been prepared for changes and innovation. They gradually increased the engine displacement, the power and the size. The biggest mechanical change was the transition from air cooled engines to water cooled engine. Water cooled engines ensure an evenly cooled engine, which results in uniform combustion, which than results by a lower emission and better fuel economy.

Porsche 911 E

The Porsche 911 E was the ‘comfort’ model of the 911 series and was sold from 1969 to 1973. Along with the 911 S, it was the first 911 equipped with fuel injection. Initially it was sold with a 2.0 litre engine, the 911 E saw an increase in displacement to 2.2 litres over the production years, resulting in a significant boost in power. This was again the case in 1972 when Porsche enlarged the engine’s stroke, which made the engine displace 2.4 litres from then on. By increasing the stroke, the latest 911 E could accelerate from 0 to 100 kilometres per hour - 0 to 62 miles per hour - in just 6.6 seconds, making it faster than the Jaguar E-Type and the Lamborghini Miura.

In 1974, the engine displacement was enlarged to 2.7 litres, and the overall design was also revised, among other changes. The 911 E is thus the last of the 911 models to show the original design. However, that's not the only reason why it is so coveted. It can easily be categorised as being one of the most timeless classics.
