The true story of the link between the 356 and the 911, the legendary 901, which was officially never sold.
The transition from the 356 to the 911 has never before been documented as precisely as this – it is the purpose of this book to shed more light on this exceptional period, to describe the genesis of the 901. It goes to the very heart of the Porsche brand – to the creation of the 901, which rapidly transformed into the 911.
The 901 model was introduced at Frankfurt motor show in 1963. 82 cars were built before the model number was changed to 911, although none were sold to the public at the time.
