The first Porsche 911 turbo

At the 29. august 1974, of the 70. birthday of Louise Piëch (daughter of Ferdinand Porsche and mother of Ferdinand Piëch) she got an very special present. A Porsche 911 in silver metallic (VIN: 911 560 0042). What it makes him special, was not indistinguishable at the first sign.

On the rear was the usual sign "Carrera". The body was narrow and only the rear wing gave a hint, that the special was under the body. In the tail was a 3.0 l engine with a unimposing mounted turbo charger at the axle back exhaust.

At that time, nobody imagined that the turbo will be, what he is today.

Tartan in red-blue characterize the interior. Moreover red leather on the seats and red deep-pile carpet. Also special is the rev meter which is from a Porsche 911 RSR an goes to 10.000 rpm.
A very special is the plate on the glove box cover with the initials of the owner "LP" and the inscription "Turbo Porsche N° 1, Stuttgart - Zuffenhausen, 29. Aug. 1974".
