Porsche 911 50 Years Edition revealed

Limited edition Porsche 911 announced to celebrate 50 years of iconic sports car

The Porsche 911 is 50 years old, and to mark the occasion, the car maker has revealed a limited-run 50 Years Edition.

It’s based on the standard Porsche 911 Carrera S, and gets the same 395bhp 3.8-litre engine and rear-wheel drive. However, the 50 Years Edition has a wider rear end taken from the four-wheel-drive Carrera 4, giving a sporty and more aggressive look.

The new model will be displayed at the Frankfurt Motor Show in September – 50 years after the original Porsche 911 made its debut, in 1963. And production of the 50 Years Edition will be strictly limited to 1,963 cars.

Along with the wider rear and some special badges, the 50 Years Edition is set apart by unique 20-inch matt black alloy wheels. There are also new Graphite and Geyser Grey paintjobs – both exclusive to the anniversary car – which are complemented by discreet chrome details. Xenon headlights, sat-nav and climate control are included, too.

Neat touches like the green numbers on the dials and white speedo needles are reminiscent of the original 911. Even the standard leather seats get a fabric pattern to mirror the ‘Pepita’ design from the 1960s.

The Porsche 911 50 Years Edition is available with either a manual gearbox or the PDK automatic, and will be priced from £92,257 when it goes on sale in September. All cars come with a sophisticated vehicle tracking system – which helps the police find your car if it’s ever stolen – as well as a complimentary driving course at the Porsche Experience Centre at Silverstone, Northants.
