Porsche 901

Porsche 901

In September 1963, Porsche presented the Porsche 901 at the IAA in Frankfurt as a successor to the Porsche 356.

Series production of the 901 began in September 1964. When Porsche presented the vehicle at the Paris Motor Show in October of that year, the French car manufacturer Peugeot objected to the model designation. The reason: Peugeot had patented a three-digit type designation with a zero in the middle.

Porsche therefore renamed the 901 as the 911. This combination of numbers is the same as the emergency number in the USA and was therefore already well known in this key market for Porsche. 82 units of the 901 were produced before the name change.

Porsche - Exterior panelling precision.

Exterior panelling precision.

A perfect fit to the body of the car is an important aspect of the Porsche quality standard. After all, the second skin must sit like a tailor-made suit. It must be precise to the millimetre. Through a series of wide-ranging measures, the Porsche Classic experts have managed to achieve considerable improvements in the production quality of wings and side sections for the Porsche 911 (model years 1965 to 1994). This also enabled the thin-plate parts of the legendary 911 Carrera RS 2.7 - of which only 1,580 were built in total in the years 1972 and 1973 - to be relaunched for the first time.
