The Porsche 356 is a sports car which was first produced by Austrian company Porsche Konstruktionen GesmbH (1948–1949), and then by German company Dr. Ing. h. c. F. Porsche GmbH (1950–1965). It was Porsche’s first production automobile. The 356 is a lightweight and nimble-handling, rear-engine, rear-wheel drive, two-door available both in hardtop coupé and open configurations. Engineering innovations continued during the years of manufacture, contributing to its motorsports success and popularity. Production started in 1948 at Gmünd, Austria, where approximately 50 cars were built. In 1950 the factory relocated to Zuffenhausen, Germany, and general production of the 356 continued until April 1965, well after the replacement model 911 made its autumn 1963 debut. Of the 76,000 originally produced, approximately half survive.
The first generation of the Porsche 911 (original model or F-model) could be bought from 1964. Available as Coupé, Cabriolet and Targa, the Porsche 911 was a 2+2-seater sports car. The 911 was offered with the following engines: 2.0 – 2.4 liter petrol engine (110-190 hp). The last Porsche 911 from the original model (F-model) ran in 1973 from the band. Compared to the Porsche 356 model, the 911 was a great development. This applies to the entire vehicle design and in particular to the engine. Before the start of 911 series production in September 1964, 13 prototypes were still being built as a Porsche 901.
The Porsche 912 was built by Porsche in the years 1965 to 1969 as an entry-level model. In the Porsche 912, the four-cylinder engine from the Porsche 356 was installed. The engine of the Porsche 912 produces 66 kW (90 hp). 1975 appeared as a new edition of the Porsche 912 E, but only for the US market.
The Porsche 911 G model was a true perennial and was built for a full 17 years. During this time, engines were built with 2.7, 3.0 and 3.2 liters. The narrow G-model (from 1974 to 1977) over the 911 SC, the Carrera 3.0 to the Carrera 3.2 gave it a large variety of variants, colors and equipment.
In 1989 the Porsche 964 came on the market and is the successor of the Porsche 911 “G-model”. The Porsche 964 was offered with both rear-wheel drive as Carrera 2, as well as with all-wheel drive as Carrera 4. The Porsche 964 has been improved in many areas compared to the G-model, for example, there was now power steering and ABS. Engine power: The engine power of the 964 ranges from 184 kW (250 hp) in the Carrera models up to 265 kW (360 hp) in the turbo model. The Porsche 964 is still a much sought after vehicle today.
The Porsche 993 is the successor to the Porsche 964 series. It is the last model of the Porsche classic 911 with air-cooled boxer engine. The engine range of the 993 introduced in 1993 ranges from 200 kW (272 hp) or 210 kW (286 hp) in the Carrera and Targa models to the turbo top model with 300 kW (408 hp). In addition, performance-enhanced vehicles for motorsport were produced, whose engine outputs range from 221 kW (300 hp) to 316 kW (430 hp). The last Porsche 993 could be bought in 1998 as a new car.
The Porsche 996 was manufactured from 1997 to 2006. In 1997 Porsche finally gave up on this air-cooled engine concept, which had been used for more than fifty years. The Porsche 996 was designed by Harm Lagaay. Body shape and interior differ significantly from the previous model 993. The Porsche 996 is the successor of the Porsche 993 and thus the fifth generation of the 911 series. The 996 is the first model of the 911 series with a water-cooled engine. I
Porsche responded to the criticism of its predecessor 996 in the development of the Porsche 911 997th The second water-cooled 911 is based optically with the classic round headlights again more on the original 911er form. Ten years ago, the production of the 997.1 named Porsche 911 ended. In 2008, the model series underwent a facelift. In the Porsche 997.2, the air intakes and bumpers were changed and for the first time in the Porsche 911, the taillights, turn signals, brake lights and the daytime running and position light (parking light) in LED technology. Another innovation is the standard bi-xenon headlights and the optional cornering light. The all-wheel drive Carrera 4, Carrera 4S and Targa 4 and Targa 4S models now have a red bar between the taillights.
The Porsche 981 is the internal name for the third-generation Porsche Boxster / Cayman models built by Porsche. It was announced at the Geneva Motor Show on March 13, 2012, with sales beginning in early summer 2012. The 981 reflects the new design language of the 911 (991) and 918 and has revised engine and transmission specifications.
In 2011, the production of the first generation of the Porsche 991 started, and driving dynamics have been further improved compared to the previous model (997). The Porsche 991 had a wider track and about ten centimeters more wheelbase than the 997. Additionally the Porsche 911 (991) was also flatter than the previous model. In addition to the driving characteristics, the comfort inside had also improved significantly. The 991 was available either as a manual gearbox (7-speed) or with the so-called PDK transmission.
The Porsche 982 is the internal designation for the fourth generation of the Boxster/Cayman from Porsche. With the switch to a new turbocharged four-cylinder engine, the marketing name for the models was changed to Porsche 718, in reference to the Porsche 718 that won the race in the Targa Florio in 1959 and 1960. The name is intended to recall Porsche’s earlier racing successes with light vehicles such as the 718, which outmanoeuvred the competition with larger and more powerful engines.
In 2018, the Porsche 992 was presented at the LA Auto Show as a coupé and on 9 January 2019 as a convertible. Basically the 992 differs from the 991 only in details. Nevertheless, one of the most visually striking features is the continuous light band at the rear. With the Porsche 992, Porsche is already starting the eighth generation of the Porsche 911. Compared to its predecessor, the Porsche 991, the 992 has been given a wider body. Nevertheless, the 992 is without doubt recognizable as the “Elfer” (911). As with the previous models, Porsche relies on the 6-cylinder boxer engine (water-cooled) located in the rear of the 992.
