The Porsche 911

Post by LhYnxz on Fri Jan 25, 2008 4:59 pm

1963-1998


The most recognized
sports car in the world. Period.


Since it's debut in 1963, the Porsche
911, and its many different iterations, has again and again redefined the
definition of "sports car." Over its 35 year life span, it has always risen
to the occasion to out-perform any rival automobile. It is, simply
and uniquely, the epitome of what a motorized vehicle is supposed to be.


It brings a smile to my face, and makes me remember how truly awesome
the Porsche 911 is and has been. It is strange, but each year, Porsche
improves the 911, even though we though it couldn't get any better. That
it couldn't accelerate any quicker. That it couldn't stop any faster. Take
the 1998 911 Turbo. Obviously, it is the most perfect 911 to date, but
some how, Porsche will improve upon it again, and again. I guarantee it.
That is what makes the Porsche 911 different.

As you might know, 1998 marked the
introduction of the first ever
water-cooled
911. Project named Type
996, this car has replaced the traditional 911 in Porsche's line-up.
I'm a traditionalist and would rather the new car be called something other
than Nine-Eleven, seeing that it know has virtually nothing in common with
the past 35 years worth of Porsche 911s. Nevertheless, Porsche is calling
the new water-pumper a 911.

Following is a breakdown of 3 links
to carry you through the 35 years of 911 models:





The
normally aspirated 911s
(Type 911),
from the original 1963 version up to the last 1994 version
(Type
964).





The
Turbocharged 911s
(Type 930)
from 1976--1989, and the later generation Turbos from 1991--1994
.







The
last generation 911
(Type 993),
in production from 1995 through 1998, including the 1996-1998 911 Turbo.
