As the books and motion pictures that cover this topic prove, humanity has developed quite the fantasy for the idea of a world that's split in half, with each resulting entity left to develop on its own. And that's because the comparo of the end results has the potential to fascinate.
Well, we don't need to turn to fiction for such stories, as the auto industry has gifted us with one - we need look no further than Porsche's yard to discover what happens when you choose your own way and then take it to the highway.

We are now over five decades away from the moment when Porsche kicked off its rear-engined offensive. Sure, others have played this game too, but, one by one, carmakers who had gone down this route gave up trying to restore the balance of a car that uses its engine as a tail.

Zuffenhausen did quite the opposite, being self-motivated to improve its 911 pride and joy. This is how we ended up with a car that manages to be as unique as ever in a world where such an asset is more and more difficult to find.

For one thing, if or when we end up colonizing another planet, we'd like to see a few Porsche engineers being included in the team, for the sheer mix of precision and entertainment their developments would deliver.

Given this... fetishy approach of the Neunelfer, its ways may be difficult to understand at times. And while we once again turn to mentioning books, spending hours and hours reading might educate one on 911-related matters, but it also comes with a price in terms of time.

This is where the clip below steps in. The animation manages to compress the entire history of the Porsche 911 in 90 seconds. Actually, the video is a bit shorter than that, which makes the achievement event more worthy of your time.
