The 911 (Nine Eleven or in German, the Neunelf) is a high performance, rear-engine, two-door sports car produced by Porsche AG in Germany. The 911 has been heavily modified for rallying, racing, and other types of competitions throughout its lifetime. It is one of the most successful competitive cars ever made. Its design has underwent only minor changes in over five decades of continuous production. Through most of its life the 911 served as Porsche’s flagship car. It is a legend in its own right, which is why it placed fifth on the international Car of the Century poll. While Porsche has and will continue to make many fine automobiles, the 911 is the company’s best known model and an icon for sports cars everywhere.
