At the 1963 Frankfurt Motor Show, Porsche unveils its No. 5 prototype called “901”. But at the official launch of its new GT, Porsche must rename them 911 because Peugeot had already deposited all three-digit denominations with a 0 in the middle. Until 1967, Porsche will sell over 10,000 copies of its GT that will become a reference in the world of sports car.
It is this army that a range is declined around the same bodies (cut and targa) with the same Flat 6 of two liters of cylinders but with different powers. Thus, the 2.0S will develop 160 hp, the 2.0 T, 110 hp to position itself at the entry level and the 2.0 L will develop 130 hp.
In August 1968, Porsche will try to provide a solution to the handling characteristics of the Porsche 911. The technicians of the factory modify their flagship model and increases the wheelbase of the 911 by 5.8 cm to go from 2,210 my 2,268 m. If 5.8 cm seem little on paper, they are enough to significantly improve the handling of the Porsche 911, without denaturer its character that is all its charm … The same army, Porsche replaces the 911 2.0 “L” by the “E”. Its denomination comes from its engine power system which passes to the injection (“E” for Einspritz, or “injection” in German).
In August 1969, the 2.0 will be replaced by 2.2I still under the three declination T, E and S. Finally for the 1972 vintage, Porsche will increase once again the cylinder to move to 2.4 liters (also closer to 2.3L 2341 cm3) with especially the adoption of a new gearbox, the 915 replacing the 901 box in dogleg The 911 2.4T will retain the Zenith carburetors, developing 130 hp, the other two models of the range being in injection mechanical.
The first production of the 2.4 is characterized by the famous “oil trap”, placed on the ARD wing, idea abandoned on the 73rd year given a few full of gasoline made by the oil trap …
