Porsche 911 Guides

Some Interesting Facts about the Porsche 911

  • The Porsche 911 is actually called the "Nine Eleven" and in Germany, it's known as the "Neunelfer."

  • Erwin Komenda and Ferdinand "Butzi" Porsche were the lead designers accredited for the icon body design of the Porsche 911.

  • Originally, the Porsche 911 was called the Porsche 901 but Peugeot informed Porsche that due to their trademark rights, the "0" between two numbers is theirs.

  • Due to its popularity, the Porsche 911 is named as the fifth Car of the Century in 1999, after the Ford Model T, Citroen DS, Mini, and the Volkswagen Beetle.

  • For almost 34 years, the Porsche 911's engine was air-cooled and in 1998, Porsche decided to change it to a water-cooled engine. This move was to meet the strict environmental rules, provide excellent fuel economy, and more horsepower.

  • Since Porsche won seven race victories at the Targa Florio World Sportscar Championship since 1956, it named its open-top convertible "Targa" (meaning plate in Italian) .

  • The Porsche 911 Targa was sold in the United States in 1967. It was designed with a stainless-steel rollbar because Porsche thought that the United States prohibited open-top convertibles during that time.

  • In the Disney-Pixar animate movie "Cars", Sally was a 2002 Porsche 911 Carrera. Howard Buck, a Porche employee suggested that Sally's last name should be Carrera, in reference to the car itself.

  • The Porsche Carrera was named after Porsche's race victories at the Carrera Panamericana in Mexico during the 1950's.

  • Introducing Bosch's K-Jetronic Fuel Injection System, Porsche launched the Carrera RS 3.0 in 1974. Called "Rennsport" in German and "Race Sport" in English, it was designed for racing teams and its RSR Turbo prototype came in second during the 24 Hours of Le Mans in 1975.

  • A Volkswagen 2.0 engine was fitted on a Porsche 912E, a Porsche 911 Carrera variant produced in 1976 for the U.S market.

  • Named "The Secret Weapon of Zuffenhausen", the Porsche 911E had quicker acceleration of up to 100 mph, compared to the 911S.

  • The Porsche 911 Turbo was the first production 911 series that came with a turbocharger. It battled head-to-head with the BMW 3.0 CSL "Batmobile" during the Le Mans races in 1976.

Porsche 911 Problems

Blending performance, practicality, and the endearing connection between driver and car, the Porche 911 is one of the most recognizable and most influential vehicles in automobile history. Through the years, several models of the Porsche 911 were introduced sporting the latest technologies, including a predominant all-aluminum construction, which made the new 911 over 110 lbs lighter. Additionally, electro-mechanical power steering was added to reduce the car's overall fuel consumption. More car enthusiasts with deeper pockets are leaning towards the Porsche 911 due to its numerous innovations. However, the Porsche 911 has its share of common problems, and it's recommended that sports car shoppers take note of these in case they encounter such issues.


Engine Problems

One of the most common problems with the Porsche 911's 3.4-liter engine involves cracked cylinder heads. From the cylinder head's bolted face, the crack forms all the way through its core plug. This crack forces oil into the water jacket, which can then contaminate the engine coolant. Also, the cylinder liners crack due to the cylinder block's torsion rigidity. Problems with cracked cylinder heads and liners require immediate replacement to avoid permanent engine damage.


Vehicle Speed Control

With the Porsche 911's vehicle speed control, the ball sockets on the car's cruise control linkage tend to break from one end. The detached linkage arm jams the nearby components, which affects the throttle plate's operation. An impaired throttle plate prevents the engine from returning to idle, resulting in unwanted engine speed.

In 1992, over 11,091 Porsche 911 units were recalled to correct the vehicle speed control problem. Replacing the plastic ball sockets with steel ball sockets and lubricating the cruise control relay lever were some of the fixes done to correct the problem.


Steering System Problems: Wheel and Handle Bar

During the manufacturing process of the Porsche 911 and Porsche Carrera's steering column, a part of the upper universal joint cracked, causing noise and free-play in the steering system. The damaged part of the car's steering column can cause steering control loss while driving.

In 1996, 12,538 Porsche 911 units were recalled to fix the damaged upper universal joint. Porsche owners were advised to contact their respective dealers and have their vehicles inspected. Dealers were instructed to replace all the cracked joints with brand new parts.

FAQs—Porsche911

I recently bought a brand-new Porsche 911, my first expensive car. Looking at blogs and reviews online, I read that I should be wary about rust. Is that true? Why is that so?

That's true. As a new owner of the luxurious 911, you should be mindful of rust buildup in the seams and around the edges of your car's door, trunk, and hood. Once corrosion starts, it can destroy the body, and it would really cost you a lot of money to fix it. The older models of 911, which had pre-galvanized units, were the ones who were badly affected with this rust problem. As much as you can prevent rust from eating up your car, do it. Inspect the jack points, torsion bar tubes, and heat exchangers for signs of rusting.

Lately, I noticed a puff of blue smoke whenever I start my engine. I'm worried because I just recently bought my car from a seller. Should I be alarmed? What's that smoke all about?

Don't panic, this blue smoke is normal. This particular model of Porsche tends to have oil seep into the cylinders when they are at rest. That's why when you start your vehicle, the oil burns and a blue smoke comes out. It doesn't require any fixing, as this is normal to every 911. However, you might watch out for the AOS (air oil separator) of your vehicle. If it fails, it gives more than a puff of smoke, and it should be replaced immediately.

I was driving my Porsche 911 on my way home one night when suddenly, it starts feeling rough. I had to pull over to the side of the road, and the next thing I know, the "Check Engine" light is on. What could possibly be the problem?

This is commonly due to the coil packs, which tend to break down due to excessive heat coming from the engine. When these packs become exposed to cold temperature, it causes misfires. This problem is usually experienced by owners during autumn, winter, and early spring. Once this happens to you, have your coil packs checked by a technician. Replace them immediately to avoid having a bad and rough ride that you don't deserve.

Whenever I drive my eight-year-old 911 over bumpy ground, I hear a knocking or rattling noise coming from the suspension. It's weird, and I am worried that something in my engine is failing. What should I do about it?

This is not a new problem for 911 owners. This is usually caused by the front or rear control arms. When this happens, all you need to do is to replace them. Once a control arm is worn out or faulty, you should replace the pair with fresh ones to ensure that both of them will have the same lifespan. The other arm is not far behind from becoming faulty, so it's better to replace them both at once. It will also save your time and effort in doing so.

Porsche 911: A Classic and Powerful Car

The status of the Porsche 911 as an icon of cool, performance, sophistication, and affluence cannot be denied. For almost 60 years, it has been a symbol of historic elegance. Throughout its lifetime, the 911 has been modified for racing, rallying, and other forms of car competitions. Through it all, the 911 has stood its ground among its competitors, winning a place as one of the Cars of the Century in 1999.

1956-1963: The conception of a classic

The Porsche 911 was designed by the carmaker as an improved version of the classic 356. Prior to the production of the 911, the 356 was already a beloved car that was the first one that bore Porsche’s name. The 356 was finished with a drag-free body and fitted with Porsche's own chassis, but its upgradability finally ran out in the 60s. Porsche needed a new sports car, and it planned on making one that was a comfortable touring car but one that had different parts from the 356.

1964-1969: An icon of ‘60s cool

Even before being a symbol of performance, sophistication, and power, it was an icon of “cool.” The Porsche 911, which went on sale in September 1964, took on the general shape of the 356 but with slightly better aerodynamics. It wasn’t considered a “handsome” shape back then, but it undoubtedly created an easily-recognizable shape that spawned a classic. The gearbox was Porsche’s patented synchromesh unit with 5-speed transmission. The 911’s power was rated at 130 hp from merely 2 liters.

The 1970s: Trying times

A slightly larger 2.2-liter version of its engine was installed on the Porsche 911 in 1970, which was bumped up to 2.3 liters in 1972. It continued through the late 1970s with a lot of changes, mainly on its engine. From 125 hp in the beginning of the 1970s to the 911SC’s 180 hp in 1978, the 911 also underwent some sudden management changes. It was almost replaced by the heavier 928, but was saved by Ferry Porsche and continued in production and development.

The 1980s-present: A modern machine

During the last 30 years, the 911 has evolved into a 320-horsepower animal with a 3.6-liter engine, capable of regaining composure over bumps and road irregularities. Although the car has received just a few minor changes since 2003, it has definitely marked its place in history with its classic allure and timeless elegance
