The earliest edition of the 911 had a 130 metric horsepower. Type 901/01 flat-6 engine, in the "boxer" configuration like the 356, air-cooled and rear-mounted, displaced 1991 cc compared with the 356's four-cylinder, 1582 cc unit. The car had four seats although the rear seats were small, thus the car is usually called a 2+2 rather than a four-seater. In 1966, Porsche introduced the more powerful 911S with Type 901/02 engine, the power raised to 158 hp. Forged aluminum alloy wheels from Fuchs, in a distinctive 5-spoke design, were offered for the first time. At Haynes, we have an extensive range of Porsche repair manuals and online maintenance procedures available for professional mechanics and DIY car enthusiasts. Our repair manual for the Porsche 911 is here to help you through every stage of servicing or fixing your car.
