This matching #'s and original renown 2.2L Porsche engine is extremely strong and powerful and the 4 speed manual transmission has a very smooth transmission shift with no synchro problems and the temperature always remains cool.
After the 4th series 356 model known as the 'C' debuted in 1964 all eyes were now focused on Ferdinand 'Butzi' Porsche's next model which was to become known as the iconic 911. The new Porsche remained rear-engined with a unit body chassis but that is where any similarites ended, the new model sported a smooth air cooled 2.0L flat six cylinder engine which replaced the formers four cylinder and it was mated to either a 4 or 5 speed all synchromesh transmission. The new 911 model from Stuttgart debuted at the Frankfurt Auto Show in September 1963 with an original 82 models being built in 1964 as a Porsche 901, which was later renamed to a 911 because the French automaker 'Peugeot' had already registered the use of any 3 digit number named car where the center digit was a zero! So therefore Porsche had some 150 models built in late 1964 as 1965 models and renamed (or renumbered!) them as the new 911! In any case they were to prove a breathtaking replacement to the previous 356 model with an attractive design that has remained timeless in both appeal and influence and remained remarkably unchanged to date.
In 1967 the 911S (S for Super) model was introduced as the new high performance model with a 160HP engine. In 1967 the 911 Targa was also introduced with no vents in the roll bar covering. In 1969 highly attractive lightweight Fuchs 5 spoke alloy wheels were introduced. In 1968 the high performance S was joined by the E and T (for Touring) variants for the European markets along with the 911L (L for Luxury) which was replaced in 1969 with the 911E version and the 911 began its true journey on the road to greatness in 1969 when the wheelbase was increased by 2.24" which went some way to curing the earlier models notorious handling issues including wild oversteering problems.
At the same time the flat six cylinder engine was further lightened with the use of a magnesium crankcase and a 5 speed gearbox casing and the addition of other costly but necessary weight saving measures in a bid to eliminate the car's rearward weight bias. The redesign allowed for wider tires to be fitted which further increased the cars levels of grip and handling. In 1970 the engine displacement became 2.2L and all models now boasted vented disc brakes. By 1972 the engine displacement had been increased to 2.4L which now produced 140HP in the 911T version and in the US a Bosch mechanical fuel injection system was fitted as standard to all three of the 911 models. Also exclusively in 1972 the oil filler was moved to the right rear fender with access to the oil tank in the front of the wheel arch.
In 1972 the 911 had also sprouted its first aerodynamic aid with a front lower air dam fitted as standard on the S and optional on the T and E, positioned below the front bumper and designed to aid the high speed stability of this model, the fastest 911 to date. In 1973 the 911T had the new Bosch CIS fuel injection system whilst the 911E, 911S and the legendary limited edition 2.7L Carrera RS still utilized mechanical fuel injection systems. The now legendary 2.7L RS Carrera also boasted a rear 'duck tail' spoiler and wide rear fender flares to accommodate the 7" wheels.
