    Default Porsche 911: 10 super facts on the supercar



    Ferdinand Porsche and car inventions go hand in hand. In 1900, at the age of 25, he designed the first hybrid gasoline-electric car for an Austrian company. Then, in June 1934, he got a contract from Adolf Hitler to design a people's car. That car became the Volkswagen Beetle.

    Component shortages led to Porsche using parts from the Beetle to work on his next car -- the Porsche 356. More than 75,000 were made over the course of 15 years.

    The Porsche 911 is the most popular car made by the company. Since 1964, all Porsche 911s have been manufactured in only one place -- Porsche's factory in Stuttgart, Germany.

    The car was originally named Porsche 901, and 82 cars were built as 901s. However, Peugeot protested on the grounds that in France it had exclusive rights to car names formed by three numbers with a zero in the middle. So, instead of selling the new model with another name in France, Porsche changed the name to 911.

    The design of the 911 has been updated only five times in four decades, resulting in six generations.

    Black, red and white are the most popular colours of the Porsche, even though the company will custom paint a car in any colour for a fee.
