Porsche is recognising 50 years of the 911 with a limited edition model
based on the Carrera S. The new model will be revealed at the Frankfurt Motor Show (IAA) in Germany in mid-September.
Like the original 911, the Porsche 911 50th Anniversary Edition is a coupé with a flat-six rear engine and rear wheel
drive; although the anniversary 911 features the wider body normally used for the all-wheel drive Carrera 4. This special
edition will be limited to 1,963 cars, a number that represents the year of the 911 world premiere.
A limited number of the 911 50th Anniversary Edition will make their way to Australia, arriving just before the end of
the year, priced from $270,100.
Indeed, it was in Frankfurt in 1963 that Porsche presented the original model to the public, initially as the type
901. Since then the 911 has evolved without interruption. In the process, the unique 'character' of the 911 has been
preserved and its 'DNA' stamped on all Porsche models.
This limited edition of the 294 kW (400 hp) 911 Carrera S incorporates key elements that have defined the 911 through
its 50 year evolution: for example, Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM) with special tuning to complement the new
model’s increased track width and exceptional cornering dynamics; sports exhaust system for a truly fitting emotional
sound; special 20-inch wheels which are a visual tribute to the legendary “Fuchs” wheels finished in matt black with
machine-polished centres. Furthermore, chrome trim strips on the front air inlets, the fins of the engine compartment
grille and the panel between the rear lights add to the distinctive appearance of this limited edition model. Another
technical highlight of the car is the Porsche Dynamic Light System (PDLS) with bi-xenon headlights and dynamic cornering
Two unique colours are available for the anniversary 911, a darker graphite grey and a lighter geyser grey metallic.
Black monochrome is also available. Each of the cars has a two-tone 3D-effect badge on the rear lid with the numbers “911
This is repeated in three colour embroidery on the front head restraints and in two colours as a logo on the
tachometer and the aluminium door sill plates. The symbol is also on the cup holder panel - together with the limited
edition number of each car. Other exterior features include high-gloss window frames and aerodynamic sport design
exterior mirrors on the door panels.
Tributes to the original 911 exist in the interior as well: green labelling on the instruments with white pointer
needles and silver caps on the instrument pivot pins, just like 50 years ago. Another special feature is the centre
panels of the leather seats, which are designed with a fabric pattern reminiscent of the “Pepita” tartan design from the
The full-leather interior is designed in agate grey or black with decorative stitching, some in contrasting colour.
The driver and front passenger experience typical 911 driving comfort with 14-way sport seats or optional 18-way sport
The gear shift or selector lever – which matches the decorative panels on the dashboard, doors and centre console in
brushed aluminium – comes from Porsche Exclusive.
The Porsche 911 50th Anniversary Edition can sprint from zero to 100 km/h in 4.5 seconds (4.3 with PDK) and can reach
a top speed of 300 km/h (298 with PDK). The car’s NEDC combined fuel consumption is 9.5 L/100 kms (8.7 with PDK), which
equates to CO2 emissions of 224 g/km (205 with PDK).
