Commemorating 50 years of the Porsche 911

Porsche will be introducing the Porsche 911 50 Years Edition at the International Motor Show in Frankfurt this September to commemorate the iconic sports car's half a century's existence. The special edition model will be limited to only 1,963 examples to indicate the year that it was introduced.

Emblem

The Porsche 911 50 Years Edition will be based on the current generation 911 Carrera S that is 44mm wider that's similar to the all-wheel drive Carrera 4 models. To complement the increased track width, a specially tuned Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM) as well as a sports exhaust system will be included.

Instrument Cluster

It will be powered by a 400 hp 3.8-liter flat-six engine that sends the 911 from 0-100km/h in just 4.5 seconds and within 4.3 seconds with the optional PDK before it reaches a top speed of 299.34 km/h.

As with all special edition models, bespoke details and trims will go with the car such as the chrome strips on the fins of the engine compartment grille, a unique 20-inch 'Fuchs' inspired five-spoke cast alloy wheels.

Wheels

Additionally, each of the cars will have a '911-50' badge  finished in two-tone 3D-style on the rear lid, the same badge can also be seen in the cabin as it is embroidered on the head restraints of the seats and displayed on the rev counter and the aluminum door sill plates. Lastly, the logo will also be placed on the passenger side fascia strip together with the limited edition number of the vehicle.

Interior

Two unique colors are offered for the 50th anniversary edition of the 911, Graphite Grey and Geyser Grey metallic.

Porsche is now accepting pre-orders of the 911 50 Years Edition with deliveries expected to arrive in September.
