The Porsche 901 that became the iconic 911

The 901 was such a triumph, so unmistakably a Porsche, that it was instantly accepted and even loved; no one pined for its supposedly superior predecessor, the 356. And precisely because of its technical and aesthetic perfection, the genesis of this legend, which has defined the sports-car genre for half a century, has never been called into question. It simply would not have occurred to anyone that the irresistible form and technology might have been the subject of spirited wrangling at Porsche.
