Porsche 911 has been delighting drivers for nearly six decades.
But where did this automotive icon come from?
And what does that three digit name actually mean?

And yes, it’s pronounced Porsche.

Look at that happy guy.
I bet he was a bucket of chuckles at parties.
Okay, so Porsche the company didn’t actually start out building
