In the late 1950s, Porsche began to develop a successor to the 356, as it had been produced virtually unchanged since 1950 and was technically no longer up-to-date. The new model should be superior to its predecessor in all areas, without sacrificing the typical Porsche design. It made its debut in 1963 at the Frankfurt Motor Show, labelled Porsche 901. Due to naming rights claims by Peugeot, the “0” in the centre was replaced by a “1”, so that in 1964, the car entered the market as Porsche 911, with a 2-litre six-cylinder boxer engine. In 1966, Porsche expanded its model range to three models.
The models T, L (later replaced by the designation E) and S differed mainly in terms of engine performance and the features’ list. The 911 T was the entry-level, the 911 S the top model. In 1969 the engine capacity was expanded from 1,991 cc to 2,195 cc. Two years later, there was a further increase in displacement to 2,341 cc. The power output of the engines went up accordingly, so that the top model, the 911 S, took to the streets with 140 kW (190 hp). It should also be mentioned that the wheelbase grew by 5.7 cm as of 1968.
