2010 Porsche 911 Sport Classic news, pictures, and information
Limited Edition 911 to debut at Frankfurt Motor Show Along With New Turbo, GT3 RS and Cup Race CarPorsche AG has distilled the DNA of the classic 911 into a select expression of class and style. Built in strictly limited numbers for the most enthusiastic and well-heeled fans, the 911 Sport Classic marks Porsche's return to the tradition of occasionally issuing ultra-exclusive production cars. The 911 Sport Classic will be presented at the 2009 Frankfurt Motor Show along wîth the 2010 911 Turbo, GT3 RS and GT3 Cup race car and production will be held to just 250 cars.
This extraordinary 911 comes from Porsche Exclusive, the company's special department that caters to the creative desires of its customers. Developed over three years, the 911 Sport Classic shows incredible attention to every detail, wîth each aspect of its design catering especially to the most demanding group of aficionados.
The unique character of the 911 Sport Classic is evident at first sight in the newly developed double-dome roof. While this model is based on the rear-wheel-drive Carrera S, it features the wider rear body of the Carrera 4S, wîth its rear fenders swollen by 1.73-inches, allowing for the wider rear track. A striking SportDesign front apron wîth unique spoiler lip and the fixed ducktail rear spoiler (a visual reference to the 1973 Carrera RS 2.7) round off the unmistakable look of the 911 Sport Classic.
Power comes from Porsche's 3.8-liter flat-six engine wîth Direct Fuel Injection (DFI), normally found in the 911 Carrera S, enhanced wîth a newly-developed resonance intake manifold wîth six vacuum-controlled switching flaps. Power is up by 23 hp to 408. The 911 Sport Classic will only be available wîth a six-speed manual gearbox.
Porsche Ceramic Composite Brakes (PCCB) are standard on this limited 911, as is the sports suspension and a mechanical locking rear axle differential. Custom-made 19-inch wheels, wîth their five-spoke centers painted black like the classic Fuchs rims familiar to fans of vintage 911s, offer a perfect match for the character of this most limited sportscar.
The special interior of the 911 Sport Classic highlights the merits of Porsche Exclusive and is distinguished by new materials never used before, even by Porsche. Woven leather, made up of smooth leather strips and woven yarn of the newly-designed adaptive sports seats complete the look wîth light-grey piping matching the door panels.
The dashboard includes a wide range of inserts and custom trim components and is finished in Espresso Nature natural leather, providing a distinctive contrast to the exterior paint in Sport Classic Grey.
The 2010 Porsche 911 Sport Classic will not be available in North America. Sales worldwide begin in January 2010; the base price of the car is Euro 169,300.
