Porsche 911 50th Anniversary Edition: a legend in its fifties
The Porsche 911 has long been a myth in the automobile world but it was first introduced under the name of 901 at the 1963 Frankfurt Motor Show. Since then, it has become the most emblematic model of the brand and a true collector’s piece.
In the space of half a century, it was improved in numerous ways according to times and technological advances of the automobile world and has thus remained the gold standard for luxury sports cars. The seven major evolutions of the car have all proved being great successes for Porsche.
To celebrate five decades of success, Porsche decided to propose a special anniversary edition of the 911 named “50th Anniversary”. In reference to its first public appearance, only 1,963 specimens of the Porsche 911 50th Anniversary Edition will be built. It is based on the Carreras version. The interior is deliberately retro and it will be made available in three sober paint schemes.
The Porsche 911 outstanding driving performances are obviously the same with a 400 horsepower engine able to reach 100kmph in 4.5 second and 300kmph overall.
