Any foreign car in the USSR was a rarity, and Porsche even seemed a stranger from outer space among these few copies, many motorists did not even know what this car is called.

Two Porsche 911 cars were purchased for the needs of the traffic police and comparison with domestic counterparts of those years. The comparison was not in favor of domestic cars. But several traffic police crews still managed to serve for some time on these two cars.

After some time, one car was temporarily handed over to the AZLK (Moskvich) for study and was tested, among other things, on the US test track with dismantled beacons and other police equipment.
