Did you know that the first ever edition of the 911 was powered by a 2.0-liter 130HP air-cooled flat-six mated to a “Type 901” gearbox. Ferdinand “Butzi” Porsche,son of Ferdinand "Ferry" Porsche designed this model.
The car was designed to be very compact in size. Shortly after the release of this 911, the replacement to the 356 was produced under the title of Porsche "912". The bodywork was the same as that of the 911 only instead a four cylinder, 90HP smaller 1.6 liter engine was installed.
