Everything in episode 11 of the 9:11 magazine goes under the heading “Extraordinary”. In five chapters, the web TV format provides a portrait of sports cars such as a Porsche 911 from 1970, a 928 SE on a world tour, and the new puristic 718 T in a design check.
1. Freedom with the 911
Manfred Huber lives out an unusual Porsche dream. Although the native Bavarian was born without legs, he longed to one day drive what he considers to be the ultimate sports car: the 911.
2. A Porsche high-flyer
A rapid drone flight provides unusual perspectives. To celebrate the ten-year anniversary of the Porsche Museum, we take a night flight past world-famous automotive icons and milestones in the history of the brand.
3. A new design approach
A focus on the essential, creating innovations – that’s what has set the Bauhaus style apart for 100 years. Professor of Architecture Fahim Mohammadi explains what this legendary school of design has in common with the Porsche 718 T.
4. An old model brought up to date
An impressive 32 PS and a top speed of 145 km/h – the VW Beetle 39 was a high-speed prototype. Porsche built 14 of these pre-production vehicles. The last VW 39 shines like new following its restoration.
5. Going to the limits
A Frenchman sets out on an adventure with a Porsche 928 S4 as a passport. For Philippe Delaporte, his journey takes him along the Silk Road and then around the whole world.
