The Porsche 911 was the built to replace its predecessor, the 356. It debuted at the 1963 Frankfurt Motor Show as a non-operational mockup. It was originally designated as the “Porsche 901” – of which 82 examples were eventually built. However, Peugeot protested on the grounds that in France it had exclusive rights to car names by three numbers with a zero in the middle. So, instead of selling the new model with another name in France, Porsche changed the name to 911. Internally, the cars’ part numbers carried on the prefix of 901 for years. Production began in September 1964 with the first 911’s reaching American shores in February 1965 with a base price of approximately $6,500.
