Beautiful Photo Series of the 1966 Porsche 911

The original Porsche 911 is a luxury sports car made by Porsche AG of Stuttgart, Germany. A prototype of the famous, distinctive, and durable design was shown to the public in autumn 1963. Production began in September 1964 and continued through 1989. It was succeeded by a modified version, internally referred to as Porsche 964 but still sold as Porsche 911, as are current models.

Mechanically, the 911 was notable for being rear engined and air-cooled. From its inception, the 911 was modified both by private teams and the factory itself for racing, rallying and other types of automotive competition. The original 911 series is often cited as the most successful competition car ever, especially when its variations are included, mainly the powerful 911-derived 935 which won 24 Hours of Le Mans and other major sports cars races outright against prototypes.

Porsche produced a mere 1,709 short-wheelbase 911 coupes for the 1966 model year; this example is among the first 100 in that group, known as the “O” series. It rolled off the assembly line 14 January 1966, painted Polo Red (6602) trimmed in Black leatherette, a popular combination in that era, and still today. A tinted windshield and rear glass were the only options requested by its first owner, a resident of Dothan, Alabama.

Here below is a photo series of the 1966 Porsche 911.
