Porsche 356 1500
“In the beginning I looked around and could not find quite the car I dreamed of. So I decided to build it myself.“ This quotation of Ferry Porsche is deemed to be the origin of a unique sports car idea which has been realized in the year 1948 with the Porsche type 356. The initial production goal was 100 cars per year but the success encouraged Ferry Porsche to establish his own vision “the purest form of driving”. 10 years after the premiere of the 356 in Stuttgart more than 25,000 Porsche sports cars have been produced; until 1965 Porsche even sold 77,766 cars of this type and the 356 became a classic only one and a half decades later.

Porsche 911 Carrera (G Model)
Ten years after its premier, the engineers had given the 911 its thorough makeover. The G Model was produced from 1974 to 1989 – longer than any other 911 generation. Its distinguishing features were the higher and more massive bellows-equipped bumpers, which were technically indispensable to meet crash test standards in the United States. In additional, the rear fenders were gradually widened as the constantly increasing performance capacity called for more room for bigger tires.

Porsche 911 Turbo 3.3 (964)
Porsche celebrated the world premiere of the 911 Turbo (type 964) at the Geneva Motorshow in 1990. The wide body and the characteristic rear wing gave the car a striking appearance carrying on the tradition of the previous 911 Turbo.
The 964 was the successor of the Porsche 911 G-Model, and to meet requirements of stricter emission standards, a catalytic converter was introduced, with a special feature of bypass tailpipe equipped with catalyser and muffler.
Because of the newly developed intake system and a bigger intercooler, the performance of the engine was increased significantly to 320 hp. New turbine geometry improved the responsiveness of the power delivery at lower engine speeds.
The new 3.3-liter-turbo engine allows the 964 to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in 5.0 seconds with a raised top speed of 270 km/h. The powerful turbo-brake system let the vehicle de-accelerate from 100 km/h to a complete stop in just 2.8 seconds.

Porsche 968 CS
From the beginning Porsche put high hope in the 968, both Coupe and Cabriolet. This car was a real Porsche – it was perfected from its predecessors, type 924 and 944. The design of this model was brought back to focus more to Porsche’s DNA.
The 968 was considered to be the highlight of Porsche’s 15 years four-cylinder-transaxle technology development since its start of production in 1976. The sporty and at the same time comfortable chassis was free of any criticism, the brakes was best in various tests and the engine also stood out in terms of fuel efficiency. Additionally the four-cylinder naturally aspirated engine produced the highest torque within its class and proudly produced 240hp. In 1993 Porsche introduced the lightweight version called 968 CS (Club Sport) with only 1,320kg, which received awards in the United Kingdom as the “Best Car 1993” as well as the “Performance Car of the Year”. To put it in a nutshell, there is no doubt about the performance and quality of the 968.
Only 1,538 Porsche 968 CS have been produced in the Porsche factory in Stuttgart-Zuffenhausen, Germany.

Porsche 911 Carrera S (993)
The world premiere of the Porsche 911 (type 993) was celebrated at the Frankfurt Motor Show in September 1993. The Porsche 911 (type 993) is characterized by – besides a new constructed aluminium chassis – a particularly harmonious design. The integrated bumper underlined this impression and in addition to that the front end of the car was much flatter than its predecessor, made possible by changing the shape of the headlights from round to polyellipsoidal headlamps. Another technical highlight was the naturally aspirated 3.6 litre Boxer engine with an increased power output of 272hp.
Being the last air cooled Porsche 911, the type 993 became very popular among enthusiast and car collectors.

Porsche 911 Carrera Cabriolet (993)
The world premiere of the Porsche 911 Carrera Cabriolet took place at the Detroit Motor Show in 1994.Being the last air-cooled Porsche 911, the type 993 became very popular among enthusiasts and car collectors. In total 15.499 cars of the 911 Cabriolet (type 993) have been produced.

Porsche 911 Targa (993)
At Porsche since 1966, the term “Targa” is synonymous with sportiness and luxury. Being the last air-cooled Porsche 911, the type 993 became very popular among enthusiasts and car collectors. The Porsche 911 Targa (Type 993) is a rare variant with only 4.583 units built since September 1995. An innovation of this Targa-generation. Was the electrically operated glass roof sliding underneath the rear window. The new roof concept received many positive responses from the automotive experts for example; the Porsche 911 Targa (type 993) won the reader’s poll for “The sportiest cars of the year” in 1995. Technically, the body of the Porsche 911 Targa (type 993) is based on the 911 Carrera Cabriolet (type 933). The preassembled glass roof was connected to the body by screwing and gluing. The two-piece bolted 17-inch wheels were also available exclusively for the Porsche 911 Targa (type 993)

Porsche 911 Turbo (996)
The 911 Turbo (type 996) made its first appearance at the Frankfurt Motor Show in 1999. Celebrating the 25th anniversary of the 911 Turbo, Porsche introduced a supercharged version of the 911 Turbo (type 996). The most significant change of this model was the water-cooled engine replacing the previously air-cooled engine.
This 911 Turbo is even faster than a 911 GT3 (type 996), which meant it was at the top of the entire 911 model range. It has a power output of 420 hp and torque of 560 Nm, which enables the vehicle to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in only 4.2 seconds.
The 996 was the first 911 Turbo model available with a 5-speed-Tiptronic S gearbox, allowing customers who favour automatic transmission to be able to drive a Turbo model for the first time.
