The Porsche 911 celebrates fifty years this year, having first been revealed as a successor to the Porsche 356 in 1963 at the IAA Frankfurt Motor Show. It launched in 1964 with an air-cooled, 6-cylinder boxer engine putting out 128 horsepower and 131 mph top speed.
Fast forward fifty years and seven generations later and the Porsche 911 sports a 3.4-liter, 350 hp engine.
Through all of that time, the 911 has remained one of the most desired sports cars on the market and has seen a total production of over 820,000 units world wide.
Porsche is holding events throughout the year to celebrate this anniversary. In the mean time enjoy the gallery below.
