Porsche 911 1965-1969




The first entirely new Porsche in 16 years. The body of the 911 was completely new yet unmistakably Porsche. It came with disc brakes all round and a 5-speed manual gearbox, the engine being an air-cooled flat 6. As a result of racing development the 911S was introduced in 1966 with a net power of 160bhp, Weber carburetors and a top speed of 137mph. American emission laws drove Porsche to develop a mechanical fuel injection system which also gave more power, they called the model 911E. This is a book of contemporary road tests, new model introductions, development history, technical & specification data, long-term tests, driver’s impressions.
