911 - 40th birthday celebration model

The 911 model reaches the age of 40 this year - and is as young as ever! Dr. Ing. h.c. F. Porsche AG, the car’s Stuttgart-based manufacturer, is celebrating this anniversary with a 911 jubilee model limited to 1,963 units, which will be available from European dealers from October on at prices starting at 82,300 Euro (excluding VAT and country-specific requirements). Including VAT, it will cost 95,616 Euro in Germany. It will be available from November in the US at 89,800 US-$ (plus tax). The world premiere for this latest version of Porsche’s sports car will take place at the Frankfurt Motor Show (IAA) in September.

The "40th anniversary 911" edition marks the climax of the successful career of what is known as the "996" internally at Porsche and by Porsche connoisseurs. It is based on the rear-wheel drive 911 Carrera and has particularly sporty suspension settings and many top-quality equipment features.

The 911 anniversary model is available exclusively in GT silver metallic - a color that was only available until now for the 612-hp Carrera GT high-performance sports car.

The 911 anniversary model is in excellent shape for its 40th birthday. Distinguishing styling features are the front cooling air openings adopted from the 911 Turbo. The side air intake grilles at the front are painted in body color. Other highly expressive styling details are the left and right sill trims, the shot-blasted, polished 18-inch Carrera wheels and the high-gloss polished exhaust tailpipes. A sliding sunroof, bi-xenon headlights with dynamic beam angle control and a headlight cleaning system complete the exterior features. There is an aluminum "911" logo on the engine cover at the rear. The 3.6-liter flat-six engine has a power output of 345 bhp (254 kW). This is 25 bhp more than the regular 911 and can be sensed particularly in the upper engine speed range, which is perfect for drivers with an ambitious sports driving style. The direct accelerator pedal linkage guarantees a spontaneous response. This modification makes the "40th anniversary 911" one second faster, at 16.5 seconds, when accelerating from 0 to 200 km/h. Its maximum speed goes up by 5 km/h to 290 km/h. The jubilee 911’s body has been lowered by ten millimeters compared with the standard production model and has firmer suspension, leading to even more sporty road behavior and a more direct driving experience. An additional mechanical rear-axle differential lock (with a locking effect of 22 percent in the traction and 27 percent in the coasting mode) results in even better traction at the driven rear wheels and, consequently, optimum acceleration potential. The electronic Porsche Stability Management (PSM) system also comes as standard.

The interior is trimmed in particularly soft dark gray natural leather. The jubilee model of course has sport seats, with two-stage seat heating. The center console, seat backs and groove trim strips on the dashboard and the handbrake lever side covers are finished in GT silver metallic. The interior looks even more stylish and exclusive, thanks to details such as the aluminum-finish instrument dial rings and the numbered "911 40th anniversary" plaque on the center console. The Porsche sound package combined with a CD radio (CDR 23) provides excellent listening.

The "911 40th anniversary" model is the 13th version of the Porsche 911 currently available and the second fastest car in Porsche’s production car program with a naturally aspirated engine, following the GT3.
