    Any special editions of the 911 on the horizon???

    Just wondering if Porsche has any 911 special editions (ltd, anniv., etc). for the coupe, cab or targa on the horizon for launch in the next 12 months (by year end 2009).

    I will be ordering a 09 C4s shortly and wanted to know this before I pull the trigger. Any insight or info would be appreciated. Thanks.

    Discounting the GT3's I doubt it, as they have just released the new GEN 2 cars.

    However if sales continue to stay at this level due to the economy you might see a marketing car

    They are knocking out loads of special edition Boxsters at the moment, but then that car is also due a face lift .....

    Re: Any special editions of the 911 on the horizon

    I doubt they will introduce any special model soon. This is mostly done at the end of production life of the car. The base 911's have had their update already, so no special model anytime soon. It could be that they will introduce a special version of the GT3 or Turbo, but it might be too early for that (especially the turbo) I can't recall any "special" editions of a truly special car like the GT3 or GT2 though. Also, as written on another thread, it is rumored that porsche is to introduce A LOT of new models soon, so the introduction of the 997.2 turbo was postponed to 2010 :O (Just rumors though, nothing confirmed).

    Re: Any special editions of the 911 on the horizon

    Usually special editions have been introduced right before the facelift/new model.

    Milestones in bold, special editions in normal text.

    1999 - 996 Debut
    2001 - 996 Millenium Edition
    2002 - 996 Facelift
    2004 - 996 40th Anniversary
    2005 - 997
    -
    2008 - 997 Facelift

    According to this timetable, the next one should be coming out in 2-3 years depending on how well the facelift sells.
