    porsche-50yearsThe Porsche 911 has been the heart and soul of the brand since its birth 50 years ago. The beloved sports car has been an inspiration to generations of car enthusiasts. In celebration of its golden anniversary, the car manufacturer released a gallery of photos that covers the birth of the 911 in 1963 to the newest generation 991.

    So far the 911 has gone through seven generations of redesign and releases. Every time the 911 returns to the design table, Porsche makes sure that the front fenders, side windows, and the roofline will be the main focal points. For the interior, some elements stayed the same through the decades including the position of the ignition key on the left side of the steering column and the layout of the instrument cluster using five gauges.

    In line with its celebration, Porsche will be hosting a good variety of events in honor of the 911 that kicks off with the Retro Classics car show in Germany. Early this March, the car company’s museum will feature four exhibits that will put spotlight on Type 754 T7 that served as the pre-series vehicle usign the chassis design by Ferdinand Alexander Porsche, a 1997 released 911 GT1 street version, a 1981 911 Cabriolet concept, and a 911 Turbo Coupe during the early days of the model.

    The German car manufacturer will also send out a 1967 Porsche 911 to different corners of the globe on a tour. This vintage will go to different continents and will visit places like Australia, Paris, UK, Shanghai, and California. The vintage Porsche 911 will be the ambassador of the brand and will grace international auto shows, motor sporting events, and historical rallies.

    The museum of Porsche will also run a special exhibit from June to end of September that will show fans from all over the development and the history of the 911. Come spring, the publishing house of the Porsche Museum will be releasing a book aptly titled, 911×911.

    The first Porsche 911 rolled out in 1963 followed by the G-Series (1973), the 964 (1988), the 993 (1993), the 996 (1997), the 997 (2004), and the 991 (2011).

    Super fast, performance cars and electric engines may or may not be a good idea for some. If everyone smiles at a TeslaPorsche 911 or drools at the blazing Formula 1 cars, a Porsche 911 that is all electric will definitely be a welcome sight. There is a loud buzz that the Wolfgang Durheimer of Porsche is giving clues that it will be producing the EV.

    Despite the hints, the group did not disclose any formal plans with regard to the production of the electric Porsche 911. While they are on the discussion table, RUF is already talking about the production of an EV derived from 911 Cabrio tagged as the Greenster.

    Durheimer recognizes the efforts of RUF but looks into the issues of the weight of the car, its performance, handling, and cargo room. The Porsche finesse in terms of the torque, traction, and instant response may still have to be tweaked.

    The Greenster in fact is a bit on the heavy side at 3,750lbs. The engine is quite powerful at 362 hp and can zoom to 100km/hr or 62mph in 5 seconds. Greenster’s top speed was recorded at 320 km/hr. Still, the numbers fall short of the Porsche 911 expectations.
