Any Porsche 911 is, by definition, a very special vehicle, yet it got even more, now that it’s fifty years old. This special occasion is celebrated by Porsche in the form of the special, limited edition “911 50 Years Edition” model. Like the original 911, the 911 50 Years Edition is a coupé with a flat-six rear engine and rear wheel drive. 1963 is the year when Porsche presented the original model (the type 901) to the public at the then Frankfurt Motor Show and also is the number of 911 50 Years Edition models to be built, each one using the wide body, typically reserved for the all-wheel drive Carrera 4 models.
This limited edition of the 400 hp (294 kW) 911 Carrera S offers Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM) with special tuning, a sport exhaust system and the legendary “Fuchs” wheels, finished in matte black paint with machine-polished centres, as standard. Some extra chrome details, the rear lid with the numbers “911 50” and Porsche Dynamic Light System (PDLS) with bi-xenon headlights and dynamic cornering lights complete the package.
Moving on to the interior, the green labelling on the instruments with white pointer needles and silver caps on the instrument pivot pins pays tribute to the original 911 interior. Another special feature is the centre panels of the leather seats, which are designed with a fabric pattern reminiscent of the “Pepita” tartan design from the 1960s, yet they now are 14-way, or optionally 18-way adjustable.
The 911 50 Years Edition will be available starting September 23, 2013, with pricing starting from 121,119 euros including VAT in Germany. Finally, the Porsche Museum will be celebrating the 50th anniversary of the 911 with one of the most extensive special exhibitions since its opening, presenting an extraordinary retrospective on the 911, with more than 40 different 911 versions, until September 29, 2013.
