The production of the G Series has been the one with the most years of life, particularly from 1973 to 1989, more than any other generation of Porsche 911.

Among some of the physical characteristics of this model, it highlights the large bellow bumpers, designed to meet the regulations of the US test shock. In addition, three points' seat belts came standard, and meant a revolution for the automotive industry as well as the integrated headrests on seats.

911 and 911S models with engines 2.7 went on to develop 150 hp and 173 hp respectively. However, the 200 horsepower became reality in 1976 with new engines 2994 cc.

If already the 911 became a legend, in 1974 the mith of the 911 was born. That year was presented the Porsche 911 Turbo, worldwide famous for the large size of his rear wing. The reason for the design of this wing were the 260 horses that developed the three-liter engine, thus making the car close to the ground.

While riding the same engine as the other 911, the power was considerably increased thanks to the turbo. It is noteworthy that the turbo increased suddenly due to its long delay, causing the power to go up without notice and the rear wheels would tend to skid.

It took three years to renew the Turbo model, increasing the displacement to 3.3 liters, incorporating one of the key parts of the mechanical framework of supercharged engines, the intercooler. Thanks to these advances, the power was increased to 300 hp, a much lower figure than the current 911 Carrera have.

While it is true that the Turbo model stirs up passions wherever he appeared, the remaining 911 continued to maintain atmospheric boxer engines, making this one of the reasons for its success. So in 1982 it was launched a new body, a model that would become known as Porsche 911 Cabriolet. In fact, those original models are some of the most valued today.

A year after the Cabriolet, the German firm began the marketing of one of the most sought models today: the 911 SC. With a 3.2-liter engine and 231 hp, currently it remains a legend.

Towards the end of its production, the G Series ended with the 911 Carrera Speedster, a car that evoked the 356-fifties and left open doors to the next generation.
