The Porsche 911 is a car that has been in existence since 1963. The car has managed to preserve its classic look in its contemporary designs. If any car is worthy to be called a classic the Porsche 911 next to the Volkswagen Beetle are true classics. The car is part of the Volkswagen Group conglomerate.

Ferdinand “Butzi” Porsche made the sketches for the Porsche 911 back in 1959. The 911 replaced the Porsche 256. It was going to be called the Porsche 901, however Peugeot successfully launched a lawsuit in France to stop this. Peugeot argued that they had the exclusive rights to any car name that featured three numbers with a zero in the center. Thus, the name was changed to Porsche 911, however 901 was used on the car’s components for years.
