    It is hard to take such news for genuine since everyone keeps mocking with all the special editions being invented angry

    If it is true I would say it is good news. 430hp with a power kit gives an indication where the GTS power figure will be.

    New special exhibition with anniversary model 911 Club Coupe

    Starting today, the Porsche Museum is presenting “60 years of Porsche Clubs”

    Stuttgart. The Dr. Ing. h.c. F. Porsche AG, Stuttgart, museum is presenting a new anniversary exhibition: In 1952, 13 Porsche drivers founded the world’s first Porsche Clubs in Germany. The Porsche Club scene now numbers more than 181,000 members worldwide. To mark this 60th club anniversary, the Porsche Museum is putting on a special exhibition until 26 August 2012 featuring, in addition to twelve vehicle exhibits, very rare photographs, personal documents and small exhibits from club members. 

    The sports car manufacturer is also using the anniversary as an opportunity to thank club members for their steadfast loyalty over the decades and their deep commitment: Based on the 911 Carrera S, Porsche is offering the 911 Club Coupe, limited to only 13 units. This special “911”, available exclusively to Porsche Club members, will make its debut appearance in the Porsche Museum. With an extensive optional equipment offering and the newly developed Powerkit upgrade to 430 hp (316 kW), the SportDesign package and the lavishly refined interior, Porsche Excusive is exploiting every angle of the extensive individualisation offering to the utmost. The 911 Club Coupe is painted “Brewster Green” as are the 20-inch SportTechno wheels. The exclusivity of the 911 Club Coupe is underlined by the decorative trim with lettering individually created for each customer as well as the illuminated door entry guards bearing the model designation and anniversary logo. 

    One vehicle will remain with Porsche in honour of the Porsche Club universe. Porsche Club members have until 16 July 2012 to register their right to purchase one of the twelve remaining unique vehicles at www.porsche.com/911-club-coupe. The twelve winners will then be determined by a legally certified draw. The 911 Club Coupe will be offered in all markets worldwide with the exception of China and India. In Germany the vehicle costs 142,831 euro excluding VAT. 

    Also on show in the Porsche Museum for the first time as part of the “60 years of the Porsche Club” special exhibition will be the 911 T Coupé. Last year, Porsche Classic experts were commissioned by the Porsche Club of America to restore a 1973 vintage US version of this model under the motto “Revive the Passion.” This unique vehicle was raffled among American Club members in a tombola.

    The Porsche Museum is open Tuesday to Sunday from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Admission is eight euro for adults and four euro for concessions. There is free admission for Porsche club members. Further information is available on the Internet at  www.porsche.com/museum.

    True but the powerkit (20-30 hp) will be available as an option later on, so maybe not such a good deal at all.

    Here is a high res image of the Club Coupe (click on image on enlarge):

    I love the scrip on the door: it enhances the 997 GTS by association...indecision

    Sad. I was hoping that with the end of the Wiedeking era, we would go back to a more serious, sober, engineering driven company. It looks like the BS marketese is still in full gear...

    I do agree with you: surely a "Club" edition is supposed to be a widely available and cheaper, stripped down version for taking to the track, kinda like a poor man's GT3..?

    Re: 2013 Porsche 911 Club Coupe

    In my opinion the buying process is what makes this Porsche special (as it was for the previous 997 based Club Coupe). The color I am afraid will not stay exclusive to this model and the powerkit, as already mentioned by RC will be soon available for 991 S. It is an already seen scenario played last time with the PCA Club Coupe.  Besides, the price tag is really steep.

    Re: 2013 Porsche 911 Club Coupe

    Remember the Sport Classic? My dealer had one for weeks with a very low mileage 30% or so below the initial price tag and he couldn't sell it. The Carrera GTS practically killed it and I doubt it will be much different with the Club Coupe.

    Funny...I have to compete to win my right to be "permitted" to buy one of these...oh boy... mail

    Tiff Needel suggested in this months Evo a gentlemens agreement limiting power to 500bhp, then focussing on other attributes instead of the crazy "just a little bit more" current approach, which actually leads to manufacturers holding back on what their new engines are really capable of...  Not a bad idea...

    In the case of Porsche, that would have to be a gentlemen's agreement with... itself!

    Porsche has not been holding back so that they can add more power and beat some competitor with bragging rights; they haven't been leaders in the HP game for some time. They hold back so that they can add some more later on and extract more $$ from us.
