With the 911, Ferry Porsche and his son Ferdinand Alexander created a sports car icon that has fascinated us for over 50 years. The secret to their success: a harmonious overall concept with a timeless design and – as our engineers sometimes call it – unique technical layout. 2+2 seats are the ideal concept for a compact, thoroughbred sports car that also meets the challenges of everyday driving. The compact engine is located at the rear, thereby providing excellent traction and characterising the unmistakable driving feel of a 911. Since 1963, we’ve been steadfastly working to further perfect the 911 concept. And we’ve never been closer to reaching this goal. The eighth generation of the 911 is the sum of its predecessors – and therefore a reflection of the past and a vision of the future. The silhouette: iconic. The design: timeless. The technology: inspired by great racing victories and always one step ahead. The result is both the most beautiful and most modern version of the 911. Full of memories, yet also full of clues as to how we can shape the future of the sports car. This makes the 911 a timeless machine. 'The Timeless Machine'.
