One of the most iconic automobiles in the world is the Porsche 911. But what made the creators decide to use the numbers 9-1-1?
The original name of this iconic car was going to be the Porsche 901. However, the French auto company, Peugeot, objected to Porsche using any three-digit number where 0 was in the middle, as that was Peugeot's signature number scheme. So Porsche replaced the 0 with a 1 and named their now famous automobile the Porsche 911.
