The Porsche 911 is the flagship of the German manufacturer. It has a distinctive design, rear-engined, with independent rear suspension, an evolution of the swing axle on the Porsche 356. Since its introduction in 1963, the 911 has undergone continuous development although the basic concept has remained little changed. Throughout its lifetime, the 911 has been modified by private teams and by the factory itself for racing, rallying and other forms of competition and is among the most successful competition cars ever. The earliest edition of the 911 had a flat six engine in the ‘boxer’ configuration, similar to the 356, air-cooled, rear-mounted and displaced 1991cc. It was mated to a four or five-speed manual ‘Type 901’ gearbox. The car had four seats although, as the rear seats were quite small, the car is usually referred to as a 2+2 rather than a four-seater. Styling was largely by Ferdinand ‘Butzi’ Porsche, son of Ferdinand ‘Ferry’ Porsche, although Erwin Komenda, who was the leader of the Porsche car body construction department, was also involved in the design.
Manufactured in 1976 and registered in the UK in 1995, this Porsche 911 Coupé is finished in white with black interior. The car presents in good all round condition with a history folder containing invoices circa £33,000 in total. The six cylinder engine runs well and offers a brisk performance; these larger engine 911’s can be great fun to drive. Supplied with a V5C registration document and a current MoT test certificate valid until 20th August 2019, this 911 Coupé is an iconic vehicle of the period. The soul of this car is very much alive and looking forward to the open road.
