Type 64
1938 - 1939
The Type-64 was only a drawing until the three racing cars were built. The body was also a compromise in that the cab had to look like a KdF car, but the rest was 'record' car. The VW beetle was the Type-60, and the name the "60K10" means body design 10 for the Type-60 Beetle. Its flat-four engine produced 50 bhp and gave a top speed of around 160 km/h (99 mph).
356
1950 - 1965
Perceived as a rather dumpy-looking rear-engined sports car, the 356 was modelled on the VW Beetle which was also designed by Ferdinand Porsche. Early editions of the 356 had split windscreens and an 1100cc flat four motor that produced a mere 40 bhp.
911
1964 - 1973
Released in 1964 this triumph of development over design is still as popular as ever. Despite many variations the pre-1974 are perceived as the best classics of this model. It is interesting to note that if it had not been for Peugeot, who had patented all three digit number configurations that contained a Zero (0) in the middle, the 911 would have been instead the 901.
914
1969 - 1975
Born from a misconceived concept by Porsche to build an affordable sports car for the masses, the 914 was launched in 1969 using a Karmann-built targa top. Using the Volkswagen sourced VW411 motor (producing 80bhp), its top speed was a laclustre 107mph / 171kmh.
914/6
1969 - 1972
After years of co-operation, Volkswagen and Porsche decided to launch a "combined" sports car in late 1969. Bearing the name VW -Porsche the new car was mid-engined, with an option of the 1.77 litre electronically-injected four-cylinder VW engine, or the two-litre Porsche "911 "six".
Porsche 910S
1975
So what do you do if you've got a body-less sports-racing Porsche on one hand, a $50,000 budget in the other, and an obsessive desire to own an 'ultimate' street car? For Jack Zimmer the answer was simple.
924
1975 - 1985
The 924's life started as a VW, its powerplant and gearbox came from Audi. The 924's 2L fuel-injected engine came from Audi's 100 saloon. Porsche was designing its own front engined model, the 928, at this point, but it appeared after the 924 in 1977.
928
1978 - 1995
For 17 years, this Porsche headed the model line-up in luxury and power. The 928 was a tourer; only offered as a 2-door coupe with a big V8 engine. The concept of the 928 originated in 1971. The model was first shown at the Geneva Auto Show in March of 1977. By this time, the 928 was ready and running.
924 Turbo
1979 - 1985
The 924 had a humble beginning when you consider the donk was derived from the 2 litre unit used in a Volkswagen van. Of course the engineers went to work on that engine so that, by the time it was installed in the engine bay of the 924, there was little resembelance. But the 924's chassis was always cring out for more power - so how did the 2 litre cope with 10 psi of turbocharger boost?
944
1982 - 1991
The 944 was an overhauled version of the 924 and was everything the 924 wasn't right from the start. As a result of the 944's release, Porsche decided to withdraw the 924 lineup from the US market(the 924 came back to the US market six years later as the 924S model).
928 S4
1987 - 1991
The 944 was an overhauled version of the 924 and was everything the 924 wasn't right from the start. As a result of the 944's release, Porsche decided to withdraw the 924 lineup from the US market(the 924 came back to the US market six years later as the 924S model).
