Vintage! Porsche 911S | drive it!

The 911 is THE iconic sports car and the raspy note from its air-cooled engine became its trademark.Two years after the 911 hit the showrooms, Porsche came out with the even more powerful 911S. Under the hood was a 2 liter motor pumping out 160 PS. It was enough to take car and driver to a top speed of over 220 km/h. The original design from 1963 was the work of Ferdinand Alexander Porsche, who was just 28 years old at the time. The car's timeless silhouette still catches the eye today and provides the blueprint for all 911s that followed.

Vintage: Porsche 911 Turbo | Drive it!
Our test driver Christoph Bauer regularly borrows classic cars from the Zeithaus museum in Wolfsburg and takes them out for a spin. All of the vehicles in the museum's collection represent milestones of automotive history. This time around Christoph wants a lean, mean driving machine -- and the Porsche 911 turbo fits the bill perfectly.The car made its debut at the Paris Motor Show in 1974. Initially fitted with a 260 horsepower engine, the 911 turbo got a power Boost in 1977. Thanks to its new intercooling system, the 3.3-liter motor could generate 300 horsepower. As the world's first turbocharged, series production supercar, the Porsche 911 turbo combined power with luxury. And it still impresses over 3 decades later -- rocketing from 0 to 100 kilometers an hour in 5.5 seconds flat.





vintage: Porsche 3.0 SC | drive it
Just about everyone dreams of buying a Porsche 911 - but a new one is a pricey investment.One option is to buy an older model. The Porsche 3.0 SC, which was built from 1978-1983, takes just 6.8 seconds to go from 0-100 km/h, and its top speed is 225 km/h.

vintage: Mercedes C111 | drive it!
More than forty years ago, car lovers the world over watched as the Mercedes C 111 rounded the track. Presented in 1969 as a two-seater with a fiberglass body and Wankel engine under its hood, the C 111 created a real stir in the motor world. True to the Mercedes motto"only the best is good enough,"it was developed almost to the point of going into series production.The C111 was widely praised for its unusual design, but the 1973 oil crisis blocked it from getting onto the road. The Wankel engine was thirsty, not thrifty, so the car was sent out to the track instead. drive it! recalls a much-loved model that never made it into the showroom.





vintage! The VW-Porsche 914 | drive it!
The moon landing was no doubt the most pioneering event of 1969. But what Volkswagen and Porsche came out with that year also looked to many sports car lovers like something out of this world. The VW-Porsche 914 polarized people -- and still does today. Some consider the car a rotten compromise, others a true maverick. Still the numbers speak for themselves -- some 120-thousand 914s were built, making it the first mid-engine car to rack up six-digit sales figures.

Porsche 911 at 50: Seven generations of 911 - autocar.co.uk
Over seven generations and 50 years, the Porsche 911 has changed with the times and technology without diluting its DNA. Steve Sutcliffe drives the 911 classic, 933 and 911 back on a snowy and slippery handling circuit at Silverstone. SUBSCRIBE to Autocar: http://youtube.com/subscription_center?add_user=autocar The Porsche 911 is 50 years and seven-generations old, having evolved from the 911 classic, to the G-Series, 964, 993, 996, 997 and current 991. Along the way there have been some major changes, perhaps none more so than the switch from air-cooled to water-cooled motors in the 996.
