The 911 is among the most successful sports cars ever. In the 1999 the 911 came fifth in the international poll for the award of ‘Car of the Century’. It is one of oldest sport coupés that remained in production continuously. In 2013, at the car's 50th anniversary, 820,000 had been sold.
During its introduction at the 1963 Frankfurt Car Show the model was named 901. However, Peugeot claimed it had exclusive rights to car names formed by three numbers with a zero in the middle. So Porsche changed the name to 911. Production began in 1964 and de 911 had a 2.0 Litre air cooled engine with 130 hp that went from 0-100 km/h in 8.9 seconds
The Targa model was introduced in 1967. A Targa (shield in Italian), named after the Targa- Florio race in Sicily, is in fact a convertible with a permanent roll-bar for improved safety and a removable soft-top. The very first Targa's had a removable plastic rear window.
