One-Millionth 911 Born
The one-millionth 911 rolled off the production line today in Zuffenhausen. A Carrera S in the special colour of Irish Green, the one-millionth car features numerous exclusive features that tip a hat to the original 911 of 1963.
The arrival of the one-millionth 911 highlights the number of cars Porsche today sells. In 2016 32,365 Porsche vehicles were delivered worldwide. And interestingly more than 70 percent of all 911s ever built are still in driving condition today. The production facilities at Porsche’s headquarters in Zuffenhausen, where all 911s are manufactured, has become a highly sophisticated operation, where workers are experts in up to 200 different tasks.
Dr Wolfgang Porsche, Chairman of the Supervisory Board at Porsche AG, has been a part of the development of the 911 since day one: “54 years ago, I was able to take my first trips over the Grossglockner High Alpine Road with my father. The feeling of being in a 911 is just as enjoyable now as it was then. That’s because the 911 has ensured that the core values of our brand are as visionary today as they were in the first Porsche 356/1 from 1948”.
The one-millionth 911 will remain with Porsche AG for a short time, before it eventually moves on to enrich the evolving car collection at the Porsche Museum. Before that the special car will embark on a world tour, taking road trips in the Scottish Highlands, around the Nürburgring, in the USA and China.
