The frog-eyed Porsche 911 has one of the most iconic shapes in all of the car world, never straying far from the original in its 55 years of production. Which is why looking at this car and seeing "Porsche 911" on the rear is so bizarre. This shape is not that of a Porsche 911.

Except, it is. In 1965, California Porsche dealer John von Neumann really wanted a convertible 911. Drop-top versions of the 356-including the Speedster, which he helped create-were very popular in California, but Porsche didn't have a new convertible when production of its first sports car ended. The 911 Targa, with its removable center roof section, was still a few years away, and Von Neumann wasn't convinced it'd be a hit anyways. According to Gooding & Company, which is auctioning this car, that led him to take matters into his own hands.

Valet Wedges Porsche 911 Under Subaru, Creates Tower Of Boxer Engines

  Valet Wedges Porsche 911 Under Subaru, Creates Tower Of Boxer Engines Some poor, poor valet in Sydney, Australia somehow managed to stuff a client’s Porsche 911 Carrera under the end of a parked Subaru Crosstrek, creating a lovely mound of boxer-engine goodness. This happened outside of the Hyatt Regency Sydney, and actually resulted in the valet getting stuck inside the Porsche, The Sydney Morning Heraldreports. The news site quotes the hotel’s director of sales and marketing, Matthew Talbot, who described the extraction process, saying: “Luckily the car underneath had a soft top, so [emergency services] were able to cut open that soft canopy and [they] got our diver out of there.

The new 911 GT2 RS is simply the most powerful 911 ever built by Porsche – with the performance level of a super sports car. Perhaps the most striking detail of the new rear panels are the tailpipe trims of the free-flow exhaust system, which produces the characteristically throaty sound of the 911

He was able to acquire a bare 911 chassis from Porsche, and tapped Nuccio Bertone to design bodywork around it. The results were distinctly Italian in style, more resembling Bertone's Fiat 850 Spider, which also debuted in 1965. Notably, it looks like no Porsche before or since. Its interior has some recognizable Porsche parts, too, but the look is totally different than the 911s we know.

The 911 by Bertone was displayed at the Geneva Motor Show in 1966 to see if it could generate enough interest to justify production. Von Neumann funded this project himself, but Porsche had final say on whether it'd be built. Unfortunately, no one placed any orders during the show, so Von Neumann gave up on the car, but he kept the single prototype for himself.

Porsche 's made a lot of 911 s over the last 53 years. These are the best. Now we expect Porsche to build race-inspired 911 s, but that tradition arguably started with the 1967 911 S. While this model wasn't designed for a specific race series, it was much sportier than your average street car of the era.

The 1999-2004 Porsche 911 was much maligned when new, but speculators think it's about to become collectible. Not so fast. Last week, I had dinner with a very nice fellow who told me a very long story about finding and purchasing the Porsche of his dreams.

Since coming back to the US after Geneva, this car has been owned by a number of private collectors. It's also been upgraded with a 2.0-liter flat-six from a 911 S, and wheels from a 914-6.

Gooding & Company says this car currently runs, but needs a bit more work to become roadworthy. That doesn't seem to have an effect on price, though. The auction house estimates it'll sell for between $700,000 and $1 million when it crosses the block at Pebble Beach later this month.

Whoever buys it will have a very odd piece of Porsche 911 history. It's a very pretty car, to be sure, but it's totally unrecognizable as a 911. It'd stick out like a sore thumb at a Porsche Club of America meeting, but perhaps that's what makes it so cool.
