"It's something that you thought had been lost. Something most seem to have abandoned in this demand for things made en masse. Yet from your very first encounter with a Porsche, you immediatly realize it is something that can still be found in our sports cars: that sense of what is possible when a machine is crafted on a human scale. One at a time. For the most part by hand. With an eye toward what can't be seen so much as felt. It isn't a car built to be something to everyone. But everything to someone."
It all began in 1948 with the 356, the
very first Porsche ever built. Since then, cars from Porsche
have been known world-wide to be the best, both
in quality and in performance.
In 1963 at the Frankfurt Motor show,
the Porsche Type 901 was announced. This car, based
on the popular Type 356, would eventually become the Porsche 911,
with only 125 made for the 1964 model year.
The 911 continues to remain the world's foremost
sports automobile. The new 1996 model is particularly
amazing, costing $5000 less than the 1994 model, with performance statistics
that remain outstanding for this car with an air-cooled flat-six engine.
"A more powerful engine. A seven percent
increase in torque. A crisper steering ratio.
It's the new nine eleven. Carrera. Base
price $63,750. Questions? 1-800-PORSCHE."
"A reworked interior. A radical new suspension.
Only sixty cars made a day. (Sixty-two on a
good day.) It's the new nine eleven. Carrera
Base price $63,750. Questions? 1-800-PORSCHE."
