A 'modern classic' if ever there was one, Porsche's long-running 911 sports car first appeared at the 1963 Frankfurt Show as the '901', but shortly after production proper commenced in 1964 had become the '911' following Peugeot's complaints about the use of '0' model numbers. The preceding Type 356's rear-engined layout was retained but the 911 switched to unitary construction for the bodyshell and dropped the 356's VW-based suspension in favour of a more modern McPherson strut and trailing arm arrangement. In its first incarnation, Porsche's single-overhead-camshaft, air-cooled flat six engine displaced 1,991cc and produced 130bhp; progressively enlarged and developed, it would eventually grow to more than 3.0 litres and, in turbo-charged form, put out well over 300 horsepower. In 1963 Porsche bought the coachbuilder Reutter, which had produced most of the bodies for the Type 356 models, thus ensuring continuity of body supply for the forthcoming 911 and 912. However, the newcomers were such a success that within a few years Porsche was selling cars faster than it could build them. Coachbuilder Karmann of Osnabruck, with whom Porsche had a longstanding relationship, was asked to help increase production, starting in 1966 with the 912. In 1968, while Porsche was working on prototypes of the forthcoming long-wheelbase 911, Karmann started building the 911T and 911S models as well. The extension of the wheelbase by 60mm represented the first major revision of the original 911 design, while the simultaneous introduction of a lightweight magnesium crankcase also helped give the LWB 911 much greater cornering stability compared with the preceding SWB cars. Production of these 'B Programme' cars, as they are known, began in August 1968. Karmann was involved in their production for only one year, during which time the Osnabruck firm built 3,561 911Ts and 1,014 911Es.

I am not a natural flatterer, I like to think that I "tell it like it is", politely I hope. So when I tell you that I am very impressed by the contents of your website, it is just not English politeness. I of course love the subject matter but you deal with it in an energetic and respectful manner. I am overwhelmed by the research that has gone into compiling the list of coachbuilders/bodybuilders for Europe and North America. I have never heard of the vast majority of them.
Congratulations on an excellent website.
