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

    intouch1:

    just what i had asked for a while back. however, they added RS style with posh luxury...pure contradiction.

    the interior is stunning and should be standard fare on the 911 turbo.

    love the ducktail and the rear exhaust.

    front apron looks ricer as do the silly stripes. thought i had cayman edition in front of me.

    the price is evil. what are they thinking ??

    BTW, on the interior pictures you can see that the "PCM in leather" option is no longer 100% perfect (at least I feel so). PCM is now only partially covered with leather. I used to like the look of the old PCM leather option much better. The new PCM looks better in plastic.

     I think is fantastic, inside out ! But that price let it down . Also from the special web I think in the future we will be able to order those parts from the Porsche Exclusive ... so maybe not that colectible ... In that case the only think that remains collectible is the plaque Porsche puts on it....  

    The roof cannot be retrofitted!


    You can hardly recognize it. Smiley
     

     You are both right! But the roof, if I remember correct, in BMW line they have the carbon made on the M6 and M3 CSL version so, maybe not that difficult... I don´t know that much about it, so better not say more... Smiley Anyway I still think the only problem of this car is the price and the fact that does not come with the PDK gearbox but the one from the Turbo with the paddles.

    Some nice touches, many of which will be offered on future cars.  Lots of complaints about the price, but has anyone put a pencil to what is being offered over and above a Carrera 2S?  Ceramic brakes, powerkit, lots of leather options, limited slip differential, etc.  Considering the options that one would otherwise pay for if so inclined, is the car that bad a deal? 


    Re: 2010 Porsche 911 Sport Classic...

    Maybe the uniqueness of the 250 units make it a future classic... but I'm not still convinced on the economic value. I am on the aesthetics!

     I get your point, and I agree, but here comes the big question: after doing all this will you still buy it over a GT3 or a Turbo, or a GT3 RS? Because a Porsche and specially a 911 has to be faster than the competition, so it wll out run the Porsche competition? It is as friendly on the track as on the street as the GT3? Or maybe those money are going too much on the aestetcs than performance? And I think here is where the big question appears IMO.

    Re: 2010 Porsche 911 Sport Classic...

    Interior is so nice without all the fake,  painted " plas-luminum " plaguing Porsches of  recent years , esp on the steering wheel .


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

    Mikla:
    MKW:

    I LOVE it !! ( Because I came of 911 age in late 60s/early 70s as a teen )  and I would buy it JUST  for the " Fuchs " style wheels , like on my first 911 .

     You'll be able to buy the Fuchs wheels shortly. They were exposed during the Old Timer GP in Nurburgring and the Fuchs salesman told us the'd be available early next year.

    That'll be great if avail from Porsche for retrofit to std cars .

    It's funny how there have been these various recent GT2/GT3 wheels with their open flower petal design that per their marketing fluff supposedly recalled the legendary Fuchs wheels' spoke shape  but c'mon , THESE are the only " homage " wheels that this long time 911  guy concurs with.   

    Only nit pick : the wheel bolts should be black or come with slip on black " beauty covers " as Audi provides on some of their models .


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

    Some nice details that'll filter through as options (especially the wheels).  Could have been braver with the colour, though; it's pretty dull.

    certainyl the worst deal offered from porsche if you take the sum of the parts.

    the gt2 has all that and more and comes at a lower price tag.

    at 1200kg it would have been a great deal though Smiley

    2010 Porsche 911 Sport Classic: Fuchs Wheels...

    Porsche's new 19-inch Sport Classic wheels, with the wheel centre painted in black, looks like it will prove to be a popular option on other models...

    12519199372262010-Porsche-911-Sport-Classic_03.jpg

    "The 911 Sport Classic from Porsche Exclusive rides on 19-inch Sport Classic wheels with the classic look of the so-called Fuchs rim. With the wheel centre painted in Black, bright-polished rim flange and wheel hub cover with coloured Porsche Crest."

    12519199542872010-Porsche-911-Sport-Classic_10.jpg

    "The history: the design of the so-called Fuchs rim was originally developed for the 911 and produced for Porsche by Otto Fuchs KG, from which it gets its name. It was offered as part of the Porsche product line for the first time in 1966. It was available until 1989. And now – 20 years later – the rim is available again in the 911 Sport Classic."

    1980s-Porsche-FUCHS-wheels.jpg

    "The 19-inch Sport Classic wheel will also be available in the Porsche Tequipment range as a complete summer wheel set beginning in April 2010 for the aftermarket personalisation of your Carrera 4 or 911 Turbo model..."

    Re: 2010 Porsche 911 Sport Classic...

    I like it a lot, very nice work! Even the price seems fair, considering all the options included. And at the end of the the day - it's a limited edition, so you have to know where your money is going.

    Thank you Porsche for the great new models in the last months!


    Re: 2010 Porsche 911 Sport Classic...

    I've been eagerly awaiting this car, hoping that Porsche would release something that is really special.  Unfortunately, for the price they intend to charge, I just don't get it.  They are way off target IMHO.  I can't imagine buying this car over a GT2. 

    Curiously, Autoweek reported that the car isn't even coming to the US.  Does anyone know if this is true?

I mean: non-porschephiles wo't buy it, becuase they don't understand all the (artificial ) links to the heritage, and porschephiles won't buy it, because they realize they can have a GT3 RS over this for the same money... :P

    No need for apologies, I just wanted to be sure I didn't miss something.  If you're looking for 18" forged, that might be a long wait.  But you can get them in 14", 15", 16", 17" (aftermarket forged), and 19" (if these are forged)Smiley

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

    The ducktail is also too small on the new one now that I'm looking at it again. If they made it a normal width rear instead othe widebody it might look a bit more proportioned. Give me the new GT3 RS anyday.

    They already announced that you can soon buy them from Porsche Exclusive for any 997 C4/C4S or Turbo.  Wrong size for C2/C2S and GT3 (centerlock) though...

    Ducktail always looked small, even when I first saw one nearly 40 yrs ago, so this is historically correct.

    Many are visually conditioned to the mid-70s  911s'  flared fenders/ whale tails / big decal graphics  defining the  3 essential requirements  adopted by the  worldwide " ricer" industry that followed and continuing today .


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

    I still can't get over the proposed cost for this car.  Now I understand why Porsche says they will only make 250 of them...because only those people with money to burn would consider this car.  Perhaps if they priced around the same as a Turbo, it might be an interesting option to consider.   However, with 408 hp and a cost of 169K euros, it's not even worth considering.
