The Stuttgart automaker has been quite busy these past few weeks prepping for the Frankfurt Motor Show. The GT3-RS was launched and now this beauty, the Porsche 911 Sport Classic. Only 250 will ever be built aimed at the true Porsche enthusiast. The Sport Classic will use a detuned version of the 3.8 liter engine used in the GT3-RS with an output of 408 horsepower. Porsche promises that the exhausts will have a distinctive sound compared to its other models.
A few retro touches are instantly spotted by the eye such as the retro wheels and the front lip spoiler. The Sport Classic uses the Carrera 4S wide body, however, the car will only be available in rear-wheel drive. The “ducktail” rear wing is reminiscent of the 1973 Carrera 2.7 RS. The only exterior color available will be the Sport Classic Grey shown here.
The interior is a work of art. Porsche have coined this leather color scheme the Espresso Nature. A first on this model is the use of woven leather, along with the alcantara headliner which just adds such a sweet touch to the retro ambiance.
I’m in love! Hats off to Porsche.
