The best thing about automakers’ important anniversaries is that they always come with special edition rides. Our latest example: Porsche. With production limited to only 1,963 units (obviously, the number is not random), the all-new Porsche 911 50 Years Edition is a stunner. It is based on the 911 Carrera S and borrows the wide body style of the Carrera 4.
Among its special edition features there are the chromed touches on the engine grille, between the rear lights, and on the front air inlets. Also part of the new package is the SportDesign door mirrors, the glossy window surrounds, and custom 20-inch alloy wheels with machine polished finish and matte black details.
Also included in the standard equipment are the xenon headlamps, torque vectoring with rear limited-slip differential, Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM), and satnav. The interior features ‘60s inspired seats with fabric and leather upholstery and 14-way electric adjustment, as well as other details that evoke older 911 models, such as white pointer needles and green labeling for the instrument cluster.
Available in black, Geyser Grey metallic and Graphite Grey, the special edition 911 is powered by the same engine that you can find in the Carrera S: a 3.8-litre six-cylinder unit with 395 hp. Standard transmission is 7-speed manual, but there is also the option of the brand’s beloved PDK gearbox. Deliveries will start in September.
