Since its debut as the model 901 at the IAA International Automotive Show in September 1963, over 820,000 Porsche 911s have been built, making it the most successful sports car in the world. Designer Ferdinand (Ferry) Porsche best described its unique qualities:
“The 911 is the only car you could drive on an African safari or at Le Mans, to the theatre or through New York City traffic.” (dedeporsche.com)
A 911 50th Anniversary celebration event took place at the
Amelia Island Concours d'Elegance in March 2013.
