THE PORSCHE 911
Now on the far side of its 50th anniversary, the iconic shape of the 911 remains as coveted as it ever was. For drivers seeking state of the art technology, the seventh generation of the 911 will satisfy their needs, while each of its previous iterations provides a clear picture of the evolution of its design and formidable performance. Without question the most historically significant Porsche model of all time, the 911 lives on.
The 901 prototypes would be introduced at the September 1963 Frankfurt Motor Show, though it would be towards the end of 1964 before Porsche was ready to put the new model into production at Zuffenhausen.
Today, early 911s continue to be competitive in vintage racing and rallying, while making for one of these most popular and usable vintage sports cars for the road. The earliest models possess a unique purity and elegance, and as the first of the breed, the 1965 models are by far the most sought-after.
THE CAR OFFERED
This 1965 Porsche 911 is a beautiful candidate for restoration, with a rare color from new; its original engine & gearbox. The Certificate associated with chassis number 300923 reveals that this particular Porsche was completed on April 15, 1965. Finished in rare and captivating Bali Blue, color code 6412, it is trimmed inside with black leatherette with Pepita Cloth inserts.
An early example that closely resembles its predecessor, the 1964 Porsche 901, it retains many of the original design elements, distinguishing it from later models. Notable features include dual Solex carburetors (available but not included) with a three-piece air cleaner and double Pierburg fuel pump, setting it apart from earlier versions that used Weber carburetors. While there are a few unique details such as button dash fasteners, seat pleat count, beveled air cleaner corners for easier installation, and a slightly taller rear engine grill positioned above the recessed deck lid, the majority of the early 911 maintains the 901 configurations.
This is a very original early 911 from 1965 with a lot of original parts and panels. Including screw in dashboard, original and very rare "high"engine grill, early shock towers, '64-'65 washer fluid, early wiring harness,... Retained trim pieces include headlamps, front bumper guards, horn grills, turn signals, and early 911 script on the engine lid. The original glass remains intact, with only the windshield having been replaced. It still has the unique front bumper guards, and the genuine inside fender water bag.
