At the 2009 Frankfurt Motor Show, Porsche is proudly presenting the Porsche 911 Sport Classic. In creating this unique model Porsche is bringing back the tradition of exclusive series built in very small numbers, for the Porsche 911 Sport Classic will be offered in a production run limited to just 250 cars worldwide.
The bespoke character of the Porsche 911 Sport Classic has been developed over a period of three years by Porsche Exclusive, the company's Specialist Department which creates the most outstanding personalised versions of Porsche cars.
Fans of the Porsche 911 will recognize immediately the charismatic styling cues incorporated in this exciting addition to the range, principally the 'ducktail' rear spoiler reminiscent of that made famous by the 1973 Porsche Carrera RS 2.7 and iconic 'Fuchs-style' design of the special custom-made alloy wheels. The Porsche 911 Sport Classic is further distinguished by its more powerful engine, unique exterior with new front and rear styling, a new centre section in the roof, new side sills, and new design of front and rear lights which illustrate the high technical standard of this very special project.
Every car in this limited series comes in the exclusive new paintwork colour of Sport Classic Grey, with discreet dark trim strips accentuating the unique character of the car. The very sophisticated and elegant interior in Espresso Nature sets new standards, going beyond even the well-known customisation of the 911 interior already offered by Porsche Exclusive.
The most essential specifications of the 911 Sport Classic highlight the supreme class and quality of the car right from the start: a 3.8-litre six-cylinder horizontally-opposed power unit developing 408 hp (300 kW); six-speed manual gearbox; rear-wheel drive; acceleration from 0 - 62mph (100 km/h) in 4.6 seconds; top speed 187 mph (302 km/h); fuel consumption in the New European Driving Cycle of 26.6 mpg (10.6 ltr/100 km).
The looks of this very special Porsche 911 are convincing right from the start, the SportDesign front panel with its purpose-built spoiler lip providing an aerodynamic balance with the rear spoiler and strongly emphasising the unique face of the Porsche 911 Sport Classic. The bi-xenon headlights with dynamic cornering lights come as standard with black surrounds, taking up a special feature with a long tradition at Porsche already to be admired on famous racing cars in the history of the company, such as the Porsche 911 Turbo RSR from 1974.Published 2 September 2009
