Porsche Museum obtains 901, the oldest 911 in its collection

Attached Image Porsche Museum has showed off its latest collection,the 1964 901 No.57. Only 82 units were produced before the name changed to the 911.

Attached Image Built in October 1964, the 901 is one of the earliest series production 911 and was sold as the 901 nameplate. However, after it started production, Peugeot wasn't happy that Porsche was using three-digit number with 0 in the middle as it had patented a three-digit type designation with a zero in the middle, giving birth to the 911 name.

Attached Image Taking three years to restore, the Porsche Museum used genuine body parts taken from a donor car in the same era with the same principal followed for the engine, transmission and interior.
