This Porsche 911 poster art is a tribute of the most iconic Porsche design
The first generation of Porsche 911 had to be indexed as 901, after its internal project name. Well, the Peugeot company had the right of naming car models with tree numbers with a zero in the middle. This is how the 911 index was born.
The car was created as a successor of the Porsche 356, the first car Ferdinand Porsche created for his own brand. It kept the Beetle layout – rear engine, rear drive, 2 + 2 seater, used for the 356 model. The design was developed under the guidance of Butzi Porsche – a son of Ferry Porsche and grandson of Ferdinand Porsche. He wanted to create more spacious and comfortable car than the 356 while preserving its fun driving experience mandatory for every Porsche car then and now.
The final sketch of the 911 was not approved by Ferdinand Porsche and Erwin Komenda, the chief engineer and leader of car-body production. Then, Ferry Porsche just took his son`s sketches to Reutter coachbuilder, located across the street. They gave the actual shape of 911 as seen on this 911 poster art which later turned into automotive icon.
Porsche 911 was powered by 6-cylinder boxer engine capable of 130 hp, mated to 5-speed manual transmission. The car came was equipped with steel wheels and chrome trim inside and out. 911 was more tail-happy because of the increased power and skinny tires.
