  2. Cars just like people have Generations. The 356 had 4; the original 356, then the 356A, then the 356B, and finally the 356C. So, we find ourselves asking where we are in the 911 Generation; as the next being the _______ will be out in early 2019.

  3. In 1965 if you lived in Europe you could have your choice of the traditional 356, or the new 911, or if money was an object but you liked the newer body style of the 911, then you could opt for the 912. That was a 911 with a 356SC Engine. It was not until 1966 that the 912 was available outside of Europe. Some say that many would buy a 912 and put a 911 designation on the rear decklid. What color were the Porsche Lettering and 912 Numbers on a 912?
