1967 Porsche 911S
- Imported by Mizwa Motors
- 2.0-liter, 160hp flat-six engine
- Rare single digit "Adachi 5" license plate
The 911 began its history as Porsche "901". Looking around, not many sports cars have steadfastly stuck to its original concept as the 911.
Since Peugeot had the exclusive rights to using the 0 in the middle of a 3 digit vehicle model in France, Porsche decided against using a different vehicle name in France but instead changed all the name produced to 911.
Using the same RR layout as the Porsche 356, the 911 series (aka Narrow Porsche) debuted at the Frankfurts Motor Show in 1963 and started production in 1964.
Compared to the 356, the 911 had a wheel base about 10cm (for the entire length of the car about 21cm) longer, with more room inside; a more comfortable and faster sports car.
The newly designed air-cooled engine, was completely updated from 1600cc to 1991cc. Equipped with an air-cooled boxer flat-six engine capable of 130hp. For the transmission, only a five-speed manual called the type 901 was available.
6,445 examples were produced in 1967. Among them only 1,823 of them were 911s.
Imported by the long-time Porsche official importer, Mizwa Motors, this example has a very rare single digit "Adachi 5" for its number plate.
