Description

Originally unveiled in 1963 as the 901, the 911 – as it would be renamed upon production launch a year later – would quickly become the celebrated successor to Porsche’s first production car, the 356.

With its new 2.0-litre engine and all-around independent suspension, the bigger, more powerful and more refined 911 was designed with Grand Touring in mind, going onto to become arguably the most successful sports car ever built, with continuous development to this day.

This 1965 911 was a ‘pure build’ historic racing car, built specifically for historic racing by a low key but well-known car builder. With an impressive set of entries to its name and a fresh race engine, it is on the button and ready to go.
