1966 Porsche 911
1966 was the second year of Porsche 911 production. Introduced in 1963 at the Frankfort Motorshow, the 911 prototype was designed by Dr. Ferdinand Porsche's grandson, Brutzi Porsche. This car replaced the 356 which was faster, longer and easier to drive than its predecessor. The first of the 911 series, this car has a 2 liter engine (6 cylinder) delivering 148 horsepower at 6100 RPM. Top speed in the car was 130 mph and its 112mm longer wheelbase and stiffer full unit-body construction provided a better handling and more responsive car than the 356 it replaced.
This particular car has undergone a complete bare metal restoration and wears its original rare "Bahama Yellow" color. This model also retains its wooden dash and period correct radio. Her polished fuchs rims were a dealer installed option. It has been shown at numerous New England Concours events. In 1966 there were only 1709 Porsche 911's produced.
