For over 30 years it has been one of the most successful, spirited and unique sports cars ever produced-and it is still going strong today.
If the Porsche 911 had lasted only a few years, it would still be one of the most remarkable cars ever built. That it remains a bestseller after more than 30 years makes this rear-engined speed demon a true automotive legend.
From Nazi Germany to the streets of Hollywood, this is the complete story of the 911. Trace its origins back to the humble VW Beetle, designed by Ferdinand Porsche before he set out to form his own company. See how the first 911 was designed by Porsche's son Ferry, who wanted a sports car "with space for a set of golf clubs." Meet the men who continue to refine this evergreen classic, keeping it at the forefront of the world's high-performance autos, and take to the test track to see just what these German wonders can do. And a remarkable parade of older 911s show how the legend has evolved over the years.
