Merely mentioning the words Porsche 911 will undoubtedly generate knowing smiles and mischievous expressions among any sports-car enthusiast within earshot. This is probably because, since its inception in 1963, the Porsche 911 has been a classic example of the high-performance sports coupe. This vehicleâs iconic curves, endless customization options and rear-turbo engine combine to make this beauty a real beast.
While its design has remained distinctive after more than 50 years of production, itâs under the hood that the Porsche 911 gets the bulk of its reputation. As technology has evolved, so has the engineering of the Porsche 911 engines. The earliest model featured a revolutionary, air-cooled, six-cylinder engine with 128 hp in the 1960âs. Fast forward to today, and the 911 engines are cooled with water, not air, and many models exceed 500 hp.
Racing competitions have certainly seen their fair share of tuned-up Porsche 911 entrants, as the vehicle lends itself to being customized down to to every nut and bolt. Owners adjust the angles of engine mounts, types of bucket seats, rear spoiler materialsâthey even install roll bars to bolster the frame to protect the driver in the event of a major crash. The Porsche 911 is certainly not your typical two-door coupe. However, it may surprise you to know that newer 911 models have been designed to consume less fuelâan added bonus for a sports car thatâs also fun to drive.
However, not all Porsche 911 owners feel pressure to race their precious performance machines. Many choose to keep these vehicles well-maintained and protected from the elementsâperhaps only taking their Porsche 911âs out for a spin on weekends or when the weather is exceptionally pleasant. The 911 may even be the only car some owners keep in their garagesâdelegating the driveway for their everyday vehicles. If you own a Porsche 911, you can expect heads to turn as you drive by. Just remember to keep your eyes on the road.
