A Sad Day for the Porsche 911

 

The Porsche 911 may be considered the most iconic model of the Porsche family, and we are sad to report that the original 911 designer, Ferdinand Porsche, has died at age 76 in Austria.  

Early concepts of the 911 can be traced back to sketches by Ferdinand Porsche in 1959 and a non-working model was first publicly displayed in 1963. Designed as a larger and more powerful version of the original Porsche 356, the 911 was introduced to the American public in 1965 and was available for $6,500.

 The 911 has come quite a ways since those original sketches, with dozens of customizations and special editions that have made it a top name among luxury vehicles, sports cars, and competition motorsports. We’ll take a moment of silence here to honor the father of such a historic and respected piece of automotive design and thank Ferdinand Porsche for the 911 we know today.
