    I remember the time when EVO ran a feature with cars that could run the Nordschleife in under 8 minutes.

    Ah the memories...

    Back? Great. You shouldn't fret too much, because this just means the next-generation GT3 should be a land rocket capable of blistering the surface of the 'Ring. GT2 guys, your numbers are still safe... for now. "

    Holy shit, you mean the previous generation 997 GT3 or the 996 GT3?

    That's freaking ridiculous!

    Article says 997, though probably the standard one, not an RS.

    Porsche 911 Carrera S (991) #5

    The rear end seems to be more sculpted than bulbous, like the 997 was.

    I still slightly prefer the 997 911 over the 991.

    Not much of a fan of the spindly wheels on the Carrera S.

    Pretty sure Porsche would offer their single lug nut wheels to you anyway.

    Porsche 991 911 50 Years Edition 2013-

    • Commemorative 50 Years Edition of the Porsche 911 coupé celebrates launch of the car in 1963
    • Based on the 911 Carrera S, with rear-mounted, 400 hp flat-six engine
    • Features exclusive wider body combined with two-wheel drive chassis
    • Limited to 1,963 examples priced from £92,257, arriving in Porsche Centres September 2013


    Porsche is celebrating a special anniversary of the 911 sports car at the International Motor Show (IAA) in Frankfurt in September with a commemorative 50 Years Edition – half a century since the iconic coupé made its debut in the German city. Appropriately, the special model will be limited to 1,963 cars.

    In 1963, Porsche presented the original model to the public. Since this first announcement – initially as the type 901 – the 911 has excited automotive fans across the globe. Porsche will unveil the limited edition model to coincide with the 50th anniversary of the 911 at the IAA in Frankfurt, which opens its doors to the public on 12 September, 2013.

    Like the first coupé, the 911 50 Years Edition combines a distinctive silhouette with a rear-mounted, flat-six engine and rear wheel drive. Yet its efficient performance, active sports suspension and exclusive body styling add contemporary appeal. Over seven successive generations, the Porsche 911 continues to resolve apparent contradictions – such as between tradition and innovation and performance and efficiency – andhas become renowned as the quintessential benchmark sports car.

    This special anniversary 911 is based on the 911 Carrera S, but is clothed in the wider body – 44 mm broader across the rear wheel arches – that is typically reserved for the all-wheel drive Carrera 4 models. The unique exterior styling is combined with features that have contributed to the 50-year success story of the car. For example, the Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM), with special tuning to complement the increased track width, adds to the exceptional cornering dynamics. The car also features a sports exhaust system for increased emotional character.

    Powered by a 400 hp 3.8-litre flat-six engine, the 911 50 Years Edition sprints from 0-62 mph in 4.5 seconds (4.3 secs with PDK) and can reach a top speed of 186 mph (185 mph with PDK). The NEDC Combined fuel consumption is 29.7 mpg (32.5 mpg with PDK), which equates to CO2 emissions of 224 g/km (205 g/km with PDK).

    Those rims really don't suit being that big. The ones on the 997 911 Sport Classic were much more successful.
    Life's too short to drive bad cars.

    Overall the car doesn't look much like an anniversary special
