Porsche 911 50 Years Edition revealed - priced from £92,257

In 1963, Porsche presented the 911(initially type 901) model to the public. To celebrate special anniversary, Porsche has unveiled a special 50 Years Edition that will make its public debut at the International Motor Show (IAA) in Frankfurt in September.

The 911 50 Years Edition is based on the 911 Carrera S, with rear-mounted, 400 hp flat-six engine, featuring exclusive wider body combined with two-wheel drive chassis.

Limited to 1,963 examples globally, the special edition is priced from £92,257 in UK, arriving in Porsche Centres September 2013.

Compared to its base car, the 911 Carrera S, it is 44 mm broader across the rear wheel arches. The car also features a sports exhaust system.

400 hp 3.8-litre flat-six engine enables it to accelerate from 0-62 mph in 4.5 seconds (4.3 secs with PDK) and can reach a top speed of 186 mph (185 mph with PDK). The NEDC Combined fuel consumption is 29.7 mpg (32.5 mpg with PDK).

Two unique colours are available: darker Graphite Grey and a lighter Geyser Grey metallic. Black is also available. Each car comes with a ‘911 50’ badge finished in two-tone 3D-style on the rear lid, also in three-colour embroidery on the head restraints, a two-colour logo on the rev counter and the aluminium door sill plates, as well as on the passenger side fascia strip together with the limited edition number of the individual vehicle.

Other highlights include bespoke chrome strips on the fins of the engine compartment grille. There are also high-gloss window frames and SportDesign exterior mirrors. All this rides on unique 20-inch five-spoke matt black cast alloy wheels whose style has been inspired by the so-called ‘Fuchs’ wheels.

Interior styling is inspired by the original 911 with green labelling on the instruments with white pointer needles and silver caps on the instrument pivot pins. The centre panels of the leather seats are designed with a fabric pattern that evokes the ‘Pepita’ tartan design from the 1960s.
