The number 911 is synonymous with two things; emergency services and the iconic Porsche model that first rolled off the production line in 1963.

Over 50 years later and Porsche are still producing 911’s with the markets love of them still as strong as ever. It’s sits in a rare breed of super-cars that are usable on a daily basis and are more accessible price-wise.

In this post we take a look back at the journey that brings us to the current 911. As you’ll see the bodywork has changed very little through the years and is as recognisable today as it was half a century ago. We salute Porsche for this – why fix something that isn’t broken?

Prices quoted are for cars in excellent condition. Rare variations or cars with historical significance are not considered.
