The 911is so-called because it is the 911th design project since Porsche opened its doors in 1931—is also the first all-Porsche Porsche. The 356 was the first car to carry the Porsche name, although when it was conceived in 1948 it was little more than a souped-up, special-bodied version of an earlier Porsche design, the Volkswagen. The 911, while true to the 356’s basic configuration, is an entirely new and different car. The engine is again air-cooled, again hung out behind the rear axle, but it’s a single-overhead-cam six-cylinder where the 356 was a pushrod four-cylinder (and the Carrera a four-cam four-cylinder). The new body is far more handsome and the work of old Professor Porsche’s grandson, Ferry, Jr.
The 911’s 5-speed gearbox, already in service in Porsche’s 904 GT racing car, is probably the new car’s best single feature. Even the suspension is new, though tried-and-true torsion bars are retained as the springing medium.
ABOUT THIS SPECIFIC EXAMPLE
One of the most significant examples in the long and brilliant history of Porsche’s fabled 911 series. This 911 was delivered new in 1965 in Los Angeles, California, where it stayed until 1994 when it came to Belgium.
In the States, the car had only two owners, and they kept this car in pristine condition. The second owner took it to many concours d’elegance around the USA since 1971 and won most of them due to the originality and superb condition of the Porsche.
In one of his letters, the owner even mentioned that his daughter often cleaned some bits of the car with a toothbrush…
The Porsche came to Belgium in 1994, with less then 50.000 miles on the clock, and is in 100% original and unrestored condition.
The last owner (a very serious collector) kept his pride and joy in the same condition, and now it must be one of the most original early 911’s in the world.
Everything is still as it left the factory 52 years ago : engine, wheels, upholstery,… The paint is still the first one as well, except from the right rear corner which had a quality repaint.
This car is a 100% accident free car, and comes with the original toolkit and manual.
Also in the file are many letters from the second owner.
All Insurance cards from 1975 are available and show the total amount of kilometers driven with the Porsche.
There are a couple of magazines from 1964 (Auto Motor und Sport) in the file with period road tests, and copies from the seventies of Windblown Witness, the magazine of the San Diego section of Porsche Club America.
This 911 also has some interesting period options, like the original Bosch radio, front foglights and a heater. The chromed steel wheels are also the original examples, with correct date stamp. The engine has never been overhauled, and is still mostly as it was in 1965.
The “pepita” upholstery is simply perfect and looks to be completely as new. The wood on the dashboard and steering wheel is untouched, and the quality of the paint is unbelievably good.
Since its arrival in Belgium in 1994, the car has covered another 15.000 miles, which brings it total mileage to 65.000 miles since 1965.
