Porsche Starts Restoring the 57th 911 Ever Made [w/Video]

The semi-rusted shell you see at the start of the official Porsche video posted below is that of the 57th 911 the company ever built. It’s important because it’s the earliest one still surviving in their possession and, through the video, Porsche is announcing the start of the restoration process on it.

It will undoubtedly be brought to exactly stock condition, since it’s bound to end up a museum piece – originality will be key, since it doesn’t need any upgrades to drive better than it did back in the day. They promise “the result will be nothing short of sensational and we can’t wait to see it”.

Check out the video posted after the virtual jump for the complete story on this very earliest of 911s, a car that when new as actually slower than the most potent versions of the 356, a car which had reached the end of its life cycle but it therefor had access to beefier engines.
