Porsche have produced the limited edition 911 50 Years Edition, which is restricted to 1,963 cars
To celebrate 50 years of the iconic 911, Porsche have produced the limited edition 911 50 Years Edition, which is restricted to 1,963 cars.
You can order the “Porsche 911 50 Years Edition”, priced from £92,257 now at your local Porsche Centre with the first deliveries taking place in September 2013.
The 911 50 Years Edition is based on the 911 Carrera S, but has the wider body of the all-wheel drive Carrera 4 models, which makes it 44 mm wider at the rear than the standard Carrera S.
911 50 Years Edition Exterior
There is a choice of two paint colours, which are exclusive to the 50 Years Edition, a darker Graphite Grey and a lighter Geyser Grey metallic or you prefer you can opt for Black. Each of the cars has a ‘911 50’ badge finished in two-tone 3D-style on the rear lid, which is repeated in three-colour embroidery on the head restraints and as a two-colour logo on the rev counter and the aluminium door sill plates. It is also displayed on the passenger side fascia strip together with the limited edition number of the individual vehicle.
Additionally there are high-gloss window frames and SportDesign exterior mirrors. It also features Porsche Dynamic Light System (PDLS), which adds a dynamic cornering function to the already standard-fit Bi-Xenon headlights.
There are bespoke five-spoke cast alloy wheels inspired by the so-called ‘Fuchs’ wheels. The new 20-inch diameter wheels are finished in matt black paint with machine-polished centres.
911 50 Years Edition Interior
In keeping with the 50 year heritage the interior takes it cues from the 1960s – with green labelling on the instruments with white pointer needles and silver caps on the instrument pivot pins. The centres of the leather seats are designed with a fabric pattern that evokes the ‘Pepita’ tartan design from the 1960s. The leather interior can be specified in Agate Grey or Black with decorative stitching. Sports seats with 14-way adjustment are standard, with 18-way Sport Seats Plus available as an option. The gear shift or selector lever – which, like the decorative panels on the dashboard, doors and centre console, is trimmed in brushed aluminium – comes from the Porsche Exclusive custom tailoring programme.
911 50 Years Edition Engine
It is powered by the same 3.8-litre flat-six engine producing 400 hp as the Carrera S – which equates to 0-62 mph time of 4.5 seconds with the manual transmission and 4.3 with the PDK system. The top speed is 186 mph and 185 mph with PDK. The official combined fuel consumption is 29.7 mpg (32.5 mpg with PDK), with CO2 emissions of 224 g/km (205 g/km with PDK).

Standard equipment includes Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM), Porsche Torque Vectoring (PTV) with rear limited slip differential, 4.6-inch colour touch-screen Porsche Communication Management with satellite navigation, automatic climate control, Bi-Xenon headlights, a universal audio interface offering MP3 connectivity and a three year warranty.
