Unveiled at the 1963 Frankfurt Motor Show, the new six-cylinder Porsche 911 was an even "grander" touring Porsche than the 356, thanks to a new 2.0-liter air-cooled flat-six with twin overhead camshafts, not to mention a distinctive new body style. British reviewer Denis Jenkinson aptly termed the 911 "the best car Porsche have yet built for road use" -- and that was in 1966. As time would show, the 911 was destined for a long and exciting life.
Porsche 911's classic shape was styled by Ferdinand Alexander "Butzi" Porsche.
The Porsche 911/912 Targa was a semi-convertible with a lift-off roof panel.
German police in Porsche's home state of Swabia used Porsche 911s in the 1960s.
