Since then this car has been regularly serviced, with a large file of invoices. Among the recent significant costs, the injection was completely revised during the last major revision (nearly 7,000 euros).
The car presents very well. The paint is of good quality and well stretched. The alignments are very good. There are 2 or 3 small dents on the body of a car that has been driven since its restoration, but the whole looks very good. The interior is in very good condition. Mechanically it works very well. The car starts right off even with the mild temperatures at the moment. The revs are straightforward and smooth. The box goes very well.
Funny detail of the file of this car, it has its original log books as well as its maintenance book.

The very first 911 made its debut at the 1963 Frankfurt Motor Show under the name Type 901. Called to succeed the Porsche 356, it was immediately unanimous among sports car enthusiasts.
To find the name of its new model, Porsche referred to the spare parts numbering system at Volkswagen, in view of the future cooperation envisaged between the two groups. It was a year later that the Type 901 abandoned its prototype status and was to be presented under the final name of 901. It was without counting on the intervention of Peugeot which saw in this name a violation of its intellectual property, Peugeot justifying the use since 1929 of a 3-digit numbering with a O in the middle. In November 1964, Ferry Porsche finally decided to call it 911, mainly for practical reasons. The car was initially marketed with a 2-liter 130 hp, then a 160 hp S version in 1966. The range gradually developed with the appearance of the T and E models in 1968.
In 1969, Porsche increased the displacement of its flat 6 to 2.2 liters, still with the three models T (125 hp), E (1 55 hp) and S (1 80 hp). The E and S were in Bosch mechanical injection, the T retaining the Zenith carburettors (identical diagram to the 2.01). The 2.2 was abandoned in 1972 in favor of the 2.4 liters and especially the 915 gearbox to replace the 901 in dogleg.
