Over seven generations and 50 years, the Porsche 911 has changed with the times and technology without diluting its DNA. Steve Sutcliffe drives the 911 classic, 933 and 911 back on a snowy and slippery handling circuit at Silverstone.

The Porsche 911 is 50 years and seven-generations old, having evolved from the 911 classic, to the G-Series, 964, 993, 996, 997 and current 991. Along the way there have been some major changes, perhaps none more so than the switch from air-cooled to water-cooled motors in the 996. Steve Sutcliffe takes the original 911 tested by Motor magazine in 1966, a 993 and 991 for a spin at a very snowy Silverstone.
