Introduced in 1963, the 911 would be the flagship of Porsche production for 30 years, retaining the same basic construction yet constantly modified and uprated as the years went by.
With a layout broadly similar to the 356, early 911’s had a steel platform chassis with springing by torsion bars, MacPherson front struts and rear trailing arms, all mated to a glorious flat-6 air-cooled engine and a 5-speed manual transmission, as first seen on the Type 904.
A lengthened wheelbase introduced in 1969 greatly improved the 911's handling, and then in 1970 the engine underwent the first of many enlargements- to 2.2 litres producing 125 horsepower, a 0-100km/h sprint time of just 10 seconds, with 4-wheel disc brakes as standard.
