The Iconic 911 series
The Porsche design team created an icon when they decided to build a rear engine flagship. Where most sports cars had their engines on the front, the 911 shared a layout with the humble Volkswagen Beetle, with its engine on the back— behind the rear wheels. It was to be called the Porsche 901, but the French automaker Peugeot had trademarked that number and so they decided to call it the 911. It has been around for about 60 years, and through them all, the 911 remains a car you buy when you make it. Treat your loved ones to Porsche memorabilia and collectibles based on one of the automotive world’s most successful product line.
