1 Million units sold a model in the automotive world it seems a fact achievable for many brands. However, if we speak of a myth as the Porsche 911 the thing changes. The first 911 came on the market in the year 1964 as a replacement to the 356. Its official presentation took place in the Frankfurt Auto show, 1963 , and already at that time knew that it would be a success.
The story of his birth we know it all because was going to call Porsche 901. However, Peugeot came out in defense of his naming with 0 in the middle. Perhaps that dispute outside the that created the myth that today’s a day to celebrate such an occasion. In the almost 54 years has had seven generations that have marked the past, present, and future of the German house.
production of the Porsche 911 has always been kept at bay because the exclusivity of the brand could be diluted to assemble a large number of these. During the past year 2016 have come out of the assembly line they have in Zuffenhausen 32.365 units. However it has not been until these days that it has left the drive number to 1 million.
unit outstanding is manufactured in irish-green , and features bodywork of the coupé. There are a few badges that you will recall the countless sports victories harvested by the model and their fate will be the museum of the brand. However, before you finish there will be a turné half the world, because it intends to call at the lands of Scotland, China and the united States. In addition, to finish this journey on the world give you a lap on the circuit of Nürburgring.
To highlight this important event, Wolfgang Porsche, grandson of Ferdinand Porsche and chairman of the brand has made the following statements “it was fifty-four years that I was able to make my first trips in the alpine road of Grossglockner with my father. The feeling of being in a 911 is now as nice as it was then, this is due to the fact that the 911 has ensured that the fundamental values of our brand are as visionary today as they were in the first Porsche 356/1 from 1948”.
