911 Carrera is All About Legacy

Industry News

Since first being introduced in 1963, the Porsche 911 has seen its share of updates throughout its lifetime. While many feel the design is a bit long in the tooth, most will agree that the design is what makes it so iconic. Built as a replacement for the Porsche 356, the 911 has literally become synonymous with the Porsche brand. And while the overall design theme has remain largely unchanged, the standard flat-6 engine has remained in place.

Originally it was air-cooled, but Porsche changed it to a water-cooled engine beginning in 1998. While many traditionalists were outraged, it was a significant update that gave the 911 a much needed technical update that made it more competitive against its American rival, the Chevrolet Corvette.
