    Re: 911 S Martini

    I don't get it....yes - unless it has some outstanding weight reduction Options and powerupgrade - but for a couple of badges and paintings ? Porsche becomes like some Watchbrands trying to be Special by bringing lots of "limited" stuff....enlightened


    Re: 911 S Martini

    I don't get it either. Its not even nicely done - have seen much more beautiful Martini-Logo adaptions.

    Also - how special is it really? If you want it just get those stickers and put them on any 991!

     

     


    Re: 911 S Martini

    This project must have taken Porsche Marketing department long hours in the office.... pity , very superficial in my opinion. 80 units and Martini Stripes that's all the value that was added.  Porsche has the Exclusive department that is still able to provide unique customization and in this case basically none of the capabilities were used .

    strange direction of the brand cheeky


    Re: 911 S Martini

    "Limited to 80 units" ... they probably thought they's sell 85 at most, and so limited production to 80, like if that made it special when its just a parts bin special broken heart

    Re: 911 S Martini

    This type of meaningless special editions have a long history at Porsche. The 930 Turbo martini and the 924 Le Mans come to my mind. Both with stripes yes

    Reginos, while I agree with your statement, please note that  Porsche used to offer on the 930 the option 042: Martini racing stripes. It was not a special edition rather  an option you could order the car with  . It is rare but stil few left the factory in that configuration. I think Von Karajan had one too.

    Thank you for the clarification. At that time Porsche had Martini as racing sponsors with many famous wins.

    Re: 911 S Martini

    The 924 Le Mans at least had the 944 2.5l engine. (even if it did have seats that disintegrated and a lighting system barely better than candles) I also liked the white\gold wheels - but since my father had one, perhaps I'm a bit biased!
