Used Porsche 911 For Sale
The classic Porsche 911 shape of the 911 Since its introduction in 1963, a Porsche 911 for sale has become an icon and permanent fixture in the makeup of the Stuttgart brand. Built as a larger, more comfortable, and powerful successor of the first cars, the 911 originally sported a flat, four-cylinder, boxer-style, air-cooled engine, which was switched out for an air-cooled flat-six, which remained a fixture until 1998. While many versions of the 911 have emerged over the years, they have all been based on a few basic platforms. In 1999, the German car company continued building its cars with the flat-six engine & but introduced a liquid-cooled system much to brand purists’ and critics’ skepticism. Before the introduction of the liquid engine cooling system, engineers turbocharged and modified engines in the 911 turbo and leaner, race-only versions like the RSR, which came in second in the 1974 24 Hours of Le Mans.
In 1967, the 911 Targa was introduced to the lineup. Preserving the rear window and a rollbar, the new design opted for removable roof panels to give drivers and passengers an open-air driving experience. This body style has been available in most, but not all of the 911 variations, some looking more like an oversized retractable sunroof option than the original open structure.
In 1973, the Carrera name was first applied to the Porsche 911, in reference to the brand’s success at the Panamericana races in Mexico during the 1950s. Carreras with the RS or RSR designation were tailored for track-day or race-specific variations of 911s. In 1990 the first four-wheel-drive production 911 was introduced and manufactured in the form of the 911 Carrera 4. With improved traction and control this derivation of the 911 has taken the model to another level of competence and possibility.
The 911 has integrated progress and ease of use since the early 911s left the factory. Five years after the 911 was introduced to the public, German engineers built its first automatic transmission, dubbed the Sportomatic. This early semi-automatic gearbox lived until 1980. In 1990 the Tiptronic semi-automatic gearbox took over, and in 2013, the PKD F-1 style dual-clutch seven-speed affair was added to the lineup, improving the acceleration of the already fast 911 even further.
