    Porsche 997 911 Sport Classic 2010

    The 911 Sport Classic – Exclusive for 250 Fans of the 911

    Stuttgart. Dr. Ing. h.c. F. Porsche AG, Stuttgart, has refined the DNA of the 911 to what must be the most supreme standard of class and style in the 911 Sport Classic available to a strictly limited number of very special 911 enthusiasts. Creating this unique model, Porsche is bringing back the tradition of exclusive small series built in very small numbers. The 911 Sport Classic will be presented at the 2009 Frankfurt Motor Show and is limited in production to just 250 cars.

    This very special 911 from Porsche Exclusive has been developed over a project period of about three years, with lots of love for detail, catering especially for the most demanding group of genuine aficionados. Porsche Exclusive is Porsche’s Specialist Department for the most outstanding customised versions of Porsche cars going beyond even the highest standard of the Company’s regular production models.

    The unique character of this very special 911 comes out at very first sight in the newly developed double-dome roof. A further highlight of this sports car based on the rear-wheel-drive Carrera S is the wider rear body up by 44 millimetres or 1.73" and the wider track on the rear axle. The striking SportDesign front apron with its unique spoiler lip and the rear spoiler fixed in position like the legendary ducktail on the 1973 Carrera RS 2.7 round off the unmistakable look of the 911 Sport Classic. Power comes from Porsche’s 3.8-litre with Direct Fuel Injection, increased in this case, also through the introduction of a newly developed resonance intake manifold with six vacuum-controlled switching flaps, by 23 bhp to 408 horsepower for even more outstanding performance.

    The 911 Sport Classic comes exclusively with a six-speed manual gearbox. PCCB Porsche Ceramic Composite Brakes ideally reflecting the sporting character of this exclusive 911, PASM sports suspension lowering the entire car by 20 mm or 0.79”, as well as the mechanical rear axle differential and custom-made 19-inch wheels with their rim star painted black all come together to offer a perfect match for the character of this most exclusive car.

    The very special, highly sophisticated interior of the 911 Sport Classic bears powerful testimony to one of the core competences of Porsche Exclusive and is characterised by new materials never used before even by Porsche. One example is woven leather made up of smooth leather strips and woven yarn featured on the seat centrepieces of the newly designed adaptive sports seats complete with light-grey piping and on the door panels.

    The dashboard including a wide range of inserts and add-on components is finished in Espresso Nature natural leather, providing a distinctive contrast to the exclusive body paint in Sport Classic Grey.

    Marking the introduction of this special limited edition model, Porsche Design Driver´s Selection is likewise introducing a range of new and very special products at the Frankfurt Motor Show. The limited edition AluFrame Trolley as well as a polo-shirt, a cap and a personalised lanyard take up the colour concept of the 911 Sport Classic, and in good time for the introduction of the new car a top-quality 1:43 model will also be available.

    Sales of the Porsche 911 Sport Classic are starting in January 2010. The Euro base price of the car without value-added tax and national specifications is Euro 169,300.-.

    I'm confused, how does this slot in compared to the GT3?

    that spoiler looks silly. maybe a modern whaletail would have suited better
    the roof hump thing looks good.

    This is fantastic. The lucky few who get their hands on this and keep it for 30 years will see these skyrocket in value no doubt.
    I think that these manufacturer specials are perfect, despite some people's complaints, because they will be the supremely sought after models in a number of years time, and will be the next generation of specials. I always look forward to the next manufacturer special.

    Just a special edition Carrera to accelerate sales in a time of economic crisis. They offer some heritage (Fuchs wheels, Ducktail) in a return for a slightly increased price.

    However, I don't see how the wheels and ducktail converge with today's styling.

    What is certainly interesting is the fact that this Carrera has the same performance, more or less, as the 360 Modena.

    I have to say, this is my favourite 997 so far. that's what i'd do to a 'normal' Carrera 2S, the classic wheels and the exaust specialy.

    The more I see it, the more it seems like a subtle aftermarket mod

    19%, don't let our politicians hear they could do 20....

    This new 911 costs 201.682,- Euros including taxes here in Germany.

    200.000?

    The sum looks huge for a Carrera. It should be much lower
