    Re: Limited addition 911 Classic launched (250 world wide)

    Just got the press release for this. Have to agree it's a pure marketing deal. One that I find quite hard to really get my head around to be honest. On the one hand, you got a lot of plusses (domed roof I think is cool, beefed up engine (power up 23hp to 408hp)). On the other you get a (to me) atrocious mix of old and new. The Fuchs style wheels that don't suit a 997 at all. The ducktail that just looks frankly odd on a modern car, as does the wierd exhaust layout.

    And let's not forget it's horrendously expensive.

    No doubt Porsche will easily sell the 250 

    models it has planned, but what's the rationale behind this limited edition (apart from making money)?

    Here's the press release text:

    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.-.

    Re: Limited addition 911 Classic launched (250 world wide)

     So when you buy this car you can also a limited addition AluFrame trolley, Polo Shirt, cap, and a personalised lanyard strap to take up the colour concept of the 911 Sport classic....   !!!!

    The company has completely lost the plot !!!!

    If you wanted to make a special addition why not just throw some back seats into a GT3 with posh leather and a few other toys.....

    I'm sorry but to price this over the GT2, GT3, Turbo and RS is crazy 

     


    Re: Limited addition 911 Classic launched (250 world wide)

    Ouch, the price. The car is nice, but should be 25% cheaper.


    Re: Limited addition 911 Classic launched (250 world wide)

    I don't knwo what has come over me, but I like it!

    Normally, I am not a fan of all the vents and gills and the likes, but it suits this car! I think I would remove the model designation though...

    Pricing seems to be a bit steep, doesn't it? :-S

    Ouch... just fell off the chair 

    The interior looks kind of cool, but the exterior... WTF! That front lip and duck tail spoiler looks like a cheap aftermarket kit. Not to mention the exhaust pipes. What is going on there? Straight out of a tuning catalogue for ricers.

    Not impressed at all

    I like it a lot actually, I have my reservations towards the front spoiler and the rear lights (easily fixed).

    Just like everyone agrees, the pricing is absurd, but as there are only 250 cars supplied, that's not something Porsche needs to worry about..
