The first vehicle to wear the Porsche badge, the Porsche 356, was built in 1948. 2 years later, a New York businessman known as Max Hoffman was the first dealer to bring in these astonishing machines to North America. Presently, the brand is a lot stronger than ever, and 2016 marks the 66th anniversary of the Porsche brand in North America. Every Porsche is a known classic, but here are ten that stand out more than the rest of the clan.

Powered by the flat-12 engine which is capable of more 620 horsepower, the car was hellishly fast. Moving under the Gulf Racing banner, the car gave Porsche its first win at 24 Hours of Le Mans, a feat it repeated after that year. Porsche retired the car later in 1971, but the vehicle would go on to master racetracks all over the globe for over ten years.
