The Porsche 911 (pronounced Nine Eleven or Neunelf in German) is a two-door, 2+2 high performance sports car made since 1963. It has a rear-mounted six cylinder boxer engine and all round independent suspension. It has undergone continuous development, though the basic concept has remained little changed. The engines were air-cooled until the introduction of the Type 996 in 1998, with Porsche's "993" series, produced in model years 1995-1998, being the last of the air-cooled Porsches.
The 911 has been modified by private teams and by the factory itself for racing, rallying and other forms of automotive competition. It is among the world’s most successful competition cars. In the mid-1970s, 911 Carrera RSRs won many major world championship sports car races.
In the 1999 international poll for the award of Car of the Century, the 911 came fifth. It is one of two in the top five cars to have remained continuously in production and was, until 1998 a successful surviving application of the air-cooled rear engined layout pioneered by its ancestor, the VW Beetle. It is one of the oldest sports coupé nameplates still in production, and 820,000 had been sold by the car's 50th anniversary in 2013. "Around 150,000,900 cars from the model years 1964 to 1989 are still on the road today."
