We’re doing a week of Essen Techno Classica posts as a catch-up post Easter. This second post looks at a classic 1965 Porsche 901 911 I definitely would not have kicked out of bed.
Located in Hall 3 near where the Porsche AG stand used to be when Porsche was still independent, Manfred Hering’s Early 911S stand has become a bit of a touchstone, and was my first port of call on arrival at Essen.
This year, the firm brought a good mix of air-cooled ‘money’ Porsche cars, including this 1965 901 911 in Emailblau (Sky Blue) which had ‘sold’ signs on from the start, an early project 911 example and a mix of impact bumper 911s and the most desirable 964s: 964 Turbo in Rubystone and another 3.6 Turbo in black with Green leather.
Plenty of impact-bumper Turbos on the stand mirrored the 930 content all around the show. These cars are clearly capturing buyers’ eyes. Here’s a link to the Early 911S website.
