The New Porsche model, successor of the 356, was launched at the Frankfurt Motor Show of 1963 as the “901”. It was a 2+2 Coupé, with bigger dimensions and engines and it was to occupy a higher segment in the market. Soon after, the name was changed from 901 to 911… Production started in Autumn 1964, and soon the name changed to the now immortal “911”. Its two litre six cylinder boxer engine developed just 130 hp. In 1966 the 911S was launched, with a 160 hp engine, later to grow to 190. It had a better finish and richer equipment, and the new Fuchs wheels. The 911s produced after 1974 were adapted to the US market, with impact bumpers and a mechanic injection system, plus antipollution exhaust whic reduced slightly the available power. The car offered today is a rare Targa with Sportomatic transmission: rather than a full automatic gearbox, the Sportomatic is a clutchless ‘box, retaining the driving pleasure ensured by changing one’s gears without having to use the clutch pedal. Originally sold in Austria, this 911 has been recently imported in Italy. It has current and valid Italian papers. The vehicle is in excellent mechanical condition but for safety reasons, we advise the purchaser to have it checked over and to replace the fluids, filters and perishable elements.
