7 generations of the Porsche 911 play Happy Birthday to itself: video

In Porsche’s on-going celebration of the 911’s 50th birthday, the company has produced a video featuring all the 911 generations sliding around a warehouse before playing “Happy Birthday” to itself via a few right feet.

It’s not a bad little video, but Porsche has taken one or two liberties here. The key, of course, being that there are only (as of 2013) six generations of the Porsche 911. For the purposes of this video Porsche has decided to make the first plastic bumpered 911, 1974’s G-Series, a distinct generation.
