We continue to review the history of the different generations of the Porsche 911, a vehicle that already has one million units produced.
1973: THE G SERIES IS A SUCCESS
Ten years after its premiere, Porsche engineers gave the 911 its first makeover. The "Model G" was produced between 1973 and 1989, the longest period of any 911 generation.
It featured remarkable accordion-shaped bumpers, an innovation designed to meet the latest crash test standards in the United States.
The protection of the passengers was improved thanks to the three-point seat belts, which were part of the standard equipment, as well as the integrated head restraints.
One of the most important milestones in the history of the 911 was the introduction, in 1974, of the first Porsche 911 Turbo with a three-liter engine delivering 260 horsepower and a huge rear wing.
With its unique blend of luxury and performance, the turbo became synonymous with the Porsche mystique. The next performance upgrade came in 1977 with the air-cooled 911 Turbo 3.3. With 300 horsepower it was the best in its class.
In 1983, the naturally aspirated 911 Carrera replaced the SC model. With a 3.2-liter engine that delivered 231 horsepower, it became a very eye-catching item for collectors.
Starting in 1982, fresh air lovers could also order the 911 with the body of a convertible.
The 911 Carrera Speedster model, launched in 1989, was reminiscent of previous legendary Porsche vehicles.
