Few are the cars in the sportscar kingdom that are as well loved as the Porsche 911. Porsche claims that about 80 percent of all 911s ever made are still around today with the vast majority still clocking up miles.

Of course Porsche didn't know that when he built the 901 but by building the best engineered car at that time and at each and every time he created a cult following and an unshakable loyalty for the 911.
