Designated the “longest production run sports car of all time,” the Porsche 911 is one of the most iconic classic cars the world has ever seen. With its roots dating back to sketches drawn by Ferdinand Porsche in 1959, the Porsche 911 developed to be the much-anticipated replacement to the 356 line. It was more powerful, larger and comfortable. Debuting at the 1963 Frankfurt Motor Show, the car was actually designated the 901 at first release. It wasn’t until Peugeot protested, citing they held exclusive rights to all car names with three numbers and a zero in the middle, that Porsche would change the name to 911. However, parts for the car carried a prefix of 901 for many years internally within Porsche. Starting in September of 1964, the first 911’s would reach the United States market in February 1965.

1965 Porsche 911 Seller’s Guide

The early Porsche 911 models – including the 1965 Porsche 911 – offered 128hp via a flat-six engine that was air-cooled and rear-mounted. Interestingly, the 911 at the time also offered four seats, yet because the rear seats were so small, many call the early models 2+2 versions. When it comes time to sell your 1965 911, there are several steps that you can take to prepare both yourself and your car for the sale. For example, it is always wise to ensure the car is in top-notch quality. Having it cleaned and detailed will only help. If you’re selling a 911 body or rolling chassis, you’ll want to have the garage space cleared around the car so that potential buyers have the freedom they need to look around and inspect the car. In some cases, you may also want to have the car inspected by a third-party in advance of a sale so you know of any issues or concerns upfront that may affect your asking price. When it comes to price, this is a bit more difficult. You can always do your research online, however getting guidance from a classic car professional like those at Alex Manos can be vital. If you price the car too high, it will sit. If you price it too low, you may leave money on the table. Let the team at help you with this part.
