The automotive industry has seen the largest development and technological advancement compared to other industries. A lot of the improvement has probably occurred in the last two decades. Germany is one of the giants in automobile precision and technology. Many automobiles have been produced and test driven for the first time since production on the streets of Stuttgart, Frankfurt or some other German city. This has also been the same for the Porsche in general and the Porsche 911 in particular.
The Porsche 911 was manufactured by the company Porsche AG in 1963 and has been in production since then. Even though there are many different plants all over the world, the original assembly plant was in Stuttgart in Germany. The Porsche 911, whose predecessor is the Porsche 356, is manufactured in one of three body styles and these are all in the two door variety. There is the two door coupe which has a permanently attached roof which is mostly popular in colder climates and with more conservative age groups.
The Porsche 911 two door variety is also made in the cabriolet fashion which is what is usually referred to as the convertible. It has a top that can convert from closed to open. Alternatively, the Porsche 911 can be made targa, a trademark of Porsche, which is semi convertible. The Porsche 911 has a rear engine as well as rear wheel drive. Most of them are also four wheel drive. Because the Porsche 911 is a generally fast and powerful piece of machinery, it is often converted and modified for rallying, racing and other forms of fast-paced motor racing competitions.
The Porsche 911 is undoubtedly one of the best and most powerful cars to come out of Germany and even the whole world for that matter. It is a well-balanced combination of power, speed and beauty. This dynamic vehicle is symbolic of German precision and discipline. It encompasses the competitive spirit of the Germans. Though sports cars are more expensive than other types of cars, the Porsche 911 is worth every cent spent on it.
