Porsche has unveiled its new 911 Sport Classic – a limited-run edition that celebrates the brand’s heritage.
Developed by Porsche’s ‘Exclusive Manufaktur’ division, the model pays tribute to the German sports car brand’s past models, namely the original 911 sold between 1964 and 1973 and the 1972 911 Classic RS 2.7.
Featuring a wide body look, which is usually reserved for Porsche’s Turbo models, the Sport Classic gets a prominent rear ducktail spoiler and a distinctive double-bubble roof. Just 1,250 examples will be produced, too.
Customers will also be able to choose to have their cars painted in black, Agate Grey, Gentian Blue or one of Porsche’s many ‘Paint to Sample’ colours.
Inside, the 911 Sport Classic uses a classic ‘Pepita’ pattern on the door panels and seat centres, using black and cognac (orange) as upholstery colours.
It’s the second classic-inspired special edition to be launched recently, following on from the 2020 911 Targa 4S Heritage Design Edition, and a further two retro special editions are in the pipeline.
Alexander Fabig, vice president of individualisation and classics at Porsche, said: “The Heritage Design models represent the most emotionally driven concepts of the Porsche product strategy.
“This unique approach sees the Style Porsche design department working with Porsche Exclusive Manufaktur to reinterpret iconic 911 models and equipment from the 1950s through to the 1980s and to revive design features from those decades.”
Prices for the 911 Sport Classic start from £209,540, making it comfortably the most expensive 911 currently on the market. It’s now available to order, with first deliveries expected in the summer.
