Photographer's Note

The Porsche 901 was introduced in 1963. The cars name was changed before it went on sale. Due to objections from Peugeot when the car was unveiled in France, Porsche decided to rename the car the 911, and thus one of the world’s most iconic sports cars was born.

Porsche’s first 911 came with a six cylinder air cooled boxer engine that had 130 HP and a top speed of 136 miles per hour, the engine configuration was similar to the one that was used in the Porsche 356, although the engine was actually a 2.0 litre version as opposed to the 1600cc engine used in the 356.

The original Porsche 911 also came with a five speed manual gear box, and the design of the vehicle was mainly down to Ferdinand Alexander Porsche, who worked together with Erwin Komenda to produce the 911, Komenda was the head of Porsche’s car body team at the time. The 911 was built between 1963 and 1969,, during that time period a number of different variants of the 911 were made.

Not sure of the vintage here, I think an early model.
