Porsche unveils the new 911 Sport Classic
“A total of 1,250 examples of the limited-edition model by Porsche Exclusive Manufaktur will revive the style of the 1960s and early 1970s. Like its immediate predecessor, the 997-based 911 Sport Classic presented in 2009, the appearance of this model is inspired by the original 911 (1964 – 1973) and the 1972 911 Carrera RS 2.7.” The German manufacturer said in a LinkedIn post.
The 911 Sport Classic is one of four of Porsche’s latest editions to their exclusive line of Heritage Design models, which take inspiration from iconic designs between the 1950s and 1980s. The 911 Targa 4S Heritage Design Edition was the first of these models, which was revealed in 2020. The other two models are yet to be revealed over the next couple of years.
According to Top Gear, “the SC (911 Sport Classic)’s 3.7-litre twin-turbo flat-six sends a hefty 542bhp to the rear wheels alone, with all of that power going through Porsche’s seven-speed manual gearbox. Yep, it’s the most powerful manual 911 on-sale today”.
Only 1,250 911 Sport Classics will be available for purchase and it will cost £209,540.
