A new car! For customers and automakers, this phrase signifies success, even as it hints at innumerable choices. Porsche’s first decade in business brought revenues and the confidence to undertake a second-generation vehicle.
THE FIRST GENERATION 1964–1969
Porsche’s 901 and 902 seized the motoring world’s attention. As Ferry and his marketing staff showed the prototype to visitors at the Frankfurt
show, his engineers readied the car for manufacture.
THE SECOND GENERATION 1978–1983
Five years after management planned to kill it, Porsche introduced the next final 911.
THE THIRD GENERATION APPEARS 1989–1994
Helmuth Bott’s schedule in 1984 had been full of the future, planning half
a decade and further ahead. While Porsche just had introduced the 3.2 Carrera, he already was anticipating the 911’s next generation.
THE FOURTH GENERATION 1994–1998
Ulrich Bez and Harm Lagaay arrived at Weissach in 1989 from BMW. Lagaay pulled designer Tony Hatter off other projects and started him sketching concepts for the next 911.
WATER COOLING DEFINES THE FIFTH GENERATION 1998–2005
As iconic as the air-cooled engine in the 911 had become, eventually Porsche decided it was the time to introduce water-cooled engines.
THE SIXTH GENERATION 2005–2012
Porsche switched up the development order with the 997. Weissach started with the convertible, knowing the lineup would include it, and then went to work on the coupe.
THE SEVENTH GENERATION 2012–2019
“We had this idea to lengthen the wheelbase long ago, even before 2006, when we first started investigations into the next car,” said August Achleitner, the 911 product line director, as he explained one of the controversial dimensions in the 991.
THE EIGHTH GENERATION, 2020–ON
Porsche introduced its eighth-generation 911, the Typ 992, to guests and
media on the eve of the Los Angeles International Auto Show at its Porsche Experience Center Los Angeles on November 27, 2018.
