One of the world's most exciting and recognisable sports cars turns 50 in 2013. First shown at the Frankfurt motor show in 1963, despite the occassional near-death experience, Porsche's brilliant 911 has stood the test of time.

One of the world's most exciting and recognisable sports cars turns 50 in 2013. First shown at the Frankfurt motor show in 1963, despite the occassional near-death experience, Porsche's brilliant 911 has stood the test of time.

Its iconic curved shape, created by Ferdinand 'Butzi' Porsche, has been respected and evolved by a series of designers over successive generations, with the car enjoying long-term sales success, and motor racing glory.

In fact, the latest 991-series 911 Carrera S took out MOTOR's Performance Car Cup award for the seventh time in 2012.
