Merchandise
A sports car produced by Porsche since 1964.  The car comes in several variants, among which are the Carrera, Targa, and Turbo models.

The classic 911 body style was designed in 1961 by F.A. Porsche and the first 911 was shown at the 1963 Frankfurt Auto Show.  The first 911 Targa was made in 1966.

The model name is Porsche 911, however, each generation of 911 has an internally used designation that resembles Porsche model names.  The designations are as follows:
NameModel Years
911 (classic)1963–1989
9121965-1969
912E1975-1976
9301975-1989
9641989-1993
9931994–1998
9961998-2004
9972005-2012

A white Porsche 911 appears on the cover of the 2016 book Admire My Style by Nakym Sheffield.

History

The following section is an excerpt from Wikipedia's Porsche 911 page on 23 November 2016, text available via the Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike 3.0 Unported License.

The Porsche 911 (pronounced Nine Eleven or German: Neunelf) is a two-door, 2+2 high performance sports car made since 1963 by Porsche AG of Stuttgart, Germany. It has a rear-mounted six cylinder boxer engine and all round independent suspension. It has undergone continuous development, though the basic concept has remained little changed. The engines were air-cooled until the introduction of the Type 996 in 1998, with Porsche's "993" series, produced in model years 1994-1998, being the last of the air-cooled Porsches.

The 911 has been modified by private teams and by the factory itself for racing, rallying, and other forms of automotive competition. It is among the most successful competition cars. In the mid-1970s, naturally aspirated 911 Carrera RSRs won major world championship sports car races such as Targa Florio, Daytona, Sebring, and Nürburgring, even against prototypes. The 911-derived 935 turbo also won the 24 Hours of Le Mans in 1979.

In the 1999 international poll for the award of Car of the Century, the 911 came fifth. It is one of two in the top five that had remained continuously in production (the original Beetle remained in production until 2003), and was until 1998 a successful surviving application of the air- (now water-) cooled opposed rear-engine layout pioneered by its ancestor, the Volkswagen Beetle. It is one of the oldest sports coupé nameplates still in production, and 820,000 had been sold by the car's 50th anniversary in 2013. "Around 150,000 911 cars from the model years 1964 to 1989 are still on the road today."
