Porsche 911 Sport Classic 2010 limited edition
At the 2009 Frankfurt Motor Show, Porsche is proudly presenting the 911 Sport Classic. In creating this unique model Porsche is bringing back the tradition of exclusive series built in very small numbers, for the 911 Sport Classic will be offered in a production run limited to just 250 cars worldwide.
The Porsche 911 Sport Classic has been developed over a period of three years by Porsche Exclusive, the company’s Specialist Department which creates personalised versions of Porsche cars.
Fans of the Porsche 911 will recognize immediately the charismatic styling cues incorporated in this exciting addition to the range, principally the ‘ducktail’ rear spoiler reminiscent of that made famous by the 1973 Carrera RS 2.7 and iconic ‘Fuchs-style’ design of the special custom-made alloy wheels. The Sport Classic is further distinguished by its more powerful engine, unique exterior with new front and rear styling, a new centre section in the roof, new side sills, and new design of front and rear lights which illustrate the high technical standard of this very special project.
Every car in this limited series comes in the exclusive new paintwork colour of Sport Classic Grey, with discreet dark trim strips. The interior comes in “Espresso Nature” trim.
The 911 Sport Classic’s highlights include a 3.8-litre 6-cylinder horizontally-opposed power unit developing 408 hp and 420 Nm of torque, a 6-speed manual gearbox, rear-wheel drive, acceleration from 0-100 kph in 4.6 seconds, 0-200 kph in 14.8 seconds, top speed of 302 kph, and fuel consumption of 10.6 l/100 km.
Aside from all the usual Porsche features and options, such as PASM active suspension and ceramic brakes, the 911 Sport Classic’s extra 23 hp comes from a new resonance intake manifold with “six vacuum-controlled switching flaps.” It also comes with a proper mechanical limited-slip differential, 19-inch Fuchs wheels and the “Sport Chrono Package Plus” option as standard.
The lower section of the instrument panel is finished in leather and comes with a special motif near the glove compartment cover bearing the number of each individual model within the series limited to just 250 cars. The same number is then repeated on the illuminated door sill trim.
The 911 Sport Classic will go on sale in the UK on January 2010 for the equivalent of Dhs 840,000, which is higher than the UAE prices of the quicker 911 GT2 and Turbo models.
