Porsche 911 2.2L

Launched in 1964 as a replacement to the 356, the Porsche 911 is probably the most recognized and iconic 2-door sports car in the world. Produced by Porsche AG of Stuttgart, Germany, it has a distinctive rear-engined layout with independent rear suspension (an evolution of the outdated the swing axle arrangement of the Porsche 356).

Since its introduction in 1963 the car has undergone continuous development, though the basic concept has remained little changed. 911’s have been modified by private teams and by the factory itself for racing, rallying and other forms of automotive competition. It is among the most successful competition cars ever made.

This 2.2L, un-ignorable in its original Tangerine paintwork, has a provenance “par excellence”. What a great car !
