We are pleased to offer on behalf of one of our clients these two very early and rare 1965 Porsche 911 Coupes.
For many years, 2shores has been offering selected and rare examples of air-cooled Porsches. Both of these cars have VIN#s below 300320 and left the factory in January of 1965! Both cars are among the first 500 Porsche 911s made!
Production of the Porsche 911 began in September 1964, with the first 911s exported to the US in February 1965. The first models of the 911 had a rear-mounted 130 hp, Type 901/01 flat-6 engine, in the "boxer" configuration like the 356, the engine is air-cooled and displaces 1,991 cc (2.0 L) as compared to the 356's four-cylinder, 1,582 cc (1.6 L) unit. The car had four seats although the rear seats were small and it is usually called a 2+2 rather than a four-seater. A four or five-speed "Type 901" manual transmission was available. The styling was largely penned by Ferdinand "Butzi" Porsche, son of Ferdinand "Ferry" Porsche. Butzi Porsche initially came up with a notchback design with proper space for seating two rear passengers but Ferry Porsche insisted that the 356's successor was to use its fastback styling. 7 prototypes were built based on Butzi Porsche's original design and were internally called the Porsche 754 T7. Erwin Komenda, the leader of the Porsche car body construction department who initially objected, was also involved later in the design.
Both cars are near 100% complete, highly original, numbers matching and come with Porsche Kardex cards.
The light ivory car needs a full restoration, the irishgreen car has been dryiced with zero corrosion, the engine is running and will require much less work. They will be sold separately or as a package of two.
This is a very rare opportunity to acquire one or two of the first Porsche 911s made.
