The first Porsche 911s had a very scurvy road behavior: a marked understeer that forced the steering wheel to turn excessively, therefore, on the way out of the corner the car tended to become oversteer risking the triggering of a skid very difficult to control.
In 1968 the designers intervened by increasing the pitch by 57 mm. In later evolutions, power and displacement steadily increased. The original 911 series was produced until 1974.
The different versions are marked with letters identifying the engine: 911 T, i.e. Touring, basic model of 110 and then 130 horsepower, in addition to the 4-speed gearbox; 911 L, the “normal” version one step above the T; 911 E, from 1969 new name of the L with the switch to engine 2.2 from 140 to 165 horsepower.
With the third generation of the Porsche 911, considerable power levels were reached and the Targa definition was awarded in honor of the sixth overall victory in the “Targa Florio” of 1966.
With the introduction of this model, Porsche achieved the highest safety standards for the time, enclosed in a state-of-the-art design and with the original solution of a removable and foldable roof that could be stored in the front trunk.
The engines of the Porsche 911 became less polluting thanks to the possibility of using low-octane petrol and, nevertheless, delivering the remarkable power for the time of 130 hp.
