55 Years of Porsche 911

For 55 years, the Porsche 911 has been an automotive icon.

It’s been a test bed for technological development, it’s been a racing superstar, and it’s been an excellent consumer car equally at home on the workday commute and the race track.

What’s more, even five decades later, the Porsche 911 still hearkens back to Ferry Porsche’s original vision and Butzi Porsche’s original design. The silhouette is still iconic and instantly recognizable, and the principles on which it was based still remain.

On April 28, World of Speed’s newest featured exhibit celebrates this long, storied legacy. “Porsche 911: 55 Years of Driving Excellence” honors this timeless automotive icon, its creators, and its successes on and off the race track.

Through the end of 2018, explore the history of the Porsche 911 and see fantastic examples of street and race cars, including:

  • 1967 911 “S”
  • 1979 MOMO 935
  • 1980 935 Brumos #0028
  • 1982 911 SC Racer
  • 1988 911 Turbo Targa Top
  • 1988 930 S Cabriolet
  • 2008 997 GT3 RSR Flying Lizard
  • 2012 911 GT3 RS4
  • 2016 911 R

… and more!

Some cars’ designs radically change over the years — and then there’s the Porsche 911.

55 years after its debut, the Porsche 911’s design silhouette hasn’t changed much. It may have more safety features, more bells and whistles, and much more power, but it’s still Butzi Porsche’s timeless vision: a true rear-engine sports car, an enthusiast car, an exhilarating driving machine that makes its driver feel like a racer.

Come celebrate 55 years of driving greatness in World of Speed’s newest featured exhibit: “Porsche 911.”

The exhibit opens April 28 and runs through 2018.

Explore the history of the legendary Porsche 911, which has been a motorsports and consumer icon for over five decades. Discover “Butzi” Porsche’s vision of a true rear-engine sports car, an exhilarating driving machine equally at home on the freeway or the speedway. “Porsche 911: 55 Years of Driving Excellence” runs through the end of 2018, only at World of Speed!
