    Yeah, I was hoping the Anniversary model was going to use the GT3 motor (possibly slightly detuned).  They would have sold out very quickly...

    Re: Porsche 911 50 Year Edition

    It looks nice, like most 911's.

    But I feel I bit let down. I placed my order with dealer today but wondering whether  i'll have buyers remorse. Other than the wide body, 2 exterior colors, a couple of chromed areas, unique interior and a badge, it appears the designers at Porsche did not put any effort. 

    My biggest fear is that after dropping 140k, that they will release a car like the 997.2 GTS. A car with 450hp and fully customizable.

    I mean it should have something more than just a powerkit. Like several have stated a detuned GT3 engine should have been the minimum standard.

    At least let us customize this car more with interior options and sport design( ducktail package). If your going to allow 3 colors then you should allow the paint to sample option.

    If you have this much doubt about your order only 1 day after making it, I would seriously consider whether you'd rather have something else (or wait for something else not yet available).  You should be excited (at least at the start) about this sort of purchase - it's not a practical car, it should bring lots of pleasure!

    Look again, closely : trip odometer reads 50.0  , and the 9:01 can also be interpreted as a not -so -subtle Porsche old timers'  final  " one fingered salute " , after all these years , directed at Peugot  !

    Congratulations! You are about to purchase what is to my eyes, the best looking 911 currently on sale. It is both elegant and very sporty. It looks like an expensive car , which the 911 is. It has class and is very tastefully done. It is the first 911 that I have seen in years where I would not change a single thing. As for the engine/power: I'm sure it will be more than enough to keep you entertained for a sufficient period of time. This is a car with which I could have a serious love affair. Long and very passionate.

    No doubt about that.

    At least you get the powerkit engine. In Germany, it is an option...for 11k EUR. Still...a very special model.

    My biggest fear is that after dropping 140k, that they will release a car like the 997.2 GTS. A car with 450hp and fully customizable.

    Yes, they probably will at some point but this happens all the time. Look at Sport Classic buyers...GTS came out pretty fast and the Sport Classic was not as "cheap" as the anniversary model. If you are looking for performance, get a GT3 or even better, the Turbo S. I doubt that Porsche is going to release a 600 hp Turbo within the next three years.

    I mean it should have something more than just a powerkit. Like several have stated a detuned GT3 engine should have been the minimum standard.

    This would have been really nice, I agree. 450 hp would have been enough or maybe 460 hp. Unfortunately I don't think that the price tag would be the same, such a car would be far beyond 140k (USD and EUR).

    At least let us customize this car more with interior options and sport design( ducktail package). If your going to allow 3 colors then you should allow the paint to sample option.

    Ducktail on the anniversary version? Seriously? This is a no go in my opinion. Also again, this is an anniversary model, not a regular model, so why would they allow customizing? Then it would be just a regular 911...with a wider ass. Smiley

    If you are not happy with your decision, get a regular 991 Carrera S with Powerkit and you can customize almost everything. This may actually make more sense for you.

    I liked them in the past but my wife started to throw them away Smiley and after a while I realized that they take too much space, so I stopped collecting them. I even had the entire 996 technical documentation in every little detail, incl. repairs but at some point, I gave it away for free to a guy who owned a 996 because it was a couple of larger files and I really needed the space. Only thing I collect now are special items, like this model car from the 2006 997 Turbo presentation for example. More than a year ago, a guy offered me 200 EUR for this but I refused. I don't know what it is worth in reality (if anything) but I really like to keep the memory. I got my dealer's first 997 Turbo in May 2006.

    Re: Porsche 911 50 Year Edition

    I am very interested in this car, but don't want to fall for a marketing ploy.  So, some questions for Rennteamers:

    1.  Will this version hold its value better than a standard 991S with similar options?

    2.  Will this version be in high demand and difficult to obtain from dealers?

    3.  What color choice?

     

    Thanks...


    Re: Porsche 911 50 Year Edition

    I would say:

    1.  Yes, a little better

    2.  More in demand than most models (but far less than the similarly priced GT3)

    3.  Since there are only 3 choices, just take the one that makes you happiest.

    Re: Porsche 911 50 Year Edition

    1.  Most likely  -  Yes

    2.  Only 1963 units  Worldwide  -  Yes

    3.  Geyser metallic    ( I like + more unique to this car than the other 2  - Gray & Black )

    Right now, I don't know. Maybe a dealer here on Rennteam could give some insight.

    3.  What color choice?

    Personal preference?

     

    Thanks...

    I just heard that Porsche is apparently doing some production allocation changes now because of the anniversary version, some other models like GT3 or Turbo/Turbo S are produced earlier (GT3), others later (Turbo) but I'm not sure if this has something to do with higher demand for the anniversary model or the other models.

    Re: Porsche 911 50 Year Edition

    Wow I love this anniversary edition. It`s got really amazing nice little retro touches, but also some really sporty upgrades. The classic interior with historic dash, those beautiful rims, and that cool retro grilled rear end is very nice and goes beyond just the sticker editions of the past. I`d get this in a heartbeat. Think about it. Most powerful manual 911 on the market (probably ever, don`t think the RS models will get manuals) and wide body with that sweet Carrera S engine. I would get one in like a total retro color like mustard yellow.
