Porsche Dials Up The 70s Retro Charm With The New 911 Sport Classic
The 911 Sport Classic will be limited to just 1250 units worldwide
How do you up the ante on an already good-looking Porsche 911? You add a dash of 70s charm, of course. At least that’s what the folks at Porsche would have thought while designing the new 911 Sport Classic.
As you might’ve guessed by now, the new 911 Sport Classic is based on the 911 Turbo S and is one of four special edition models that will show up over the current gen’s 911.
Design-wise, the 911 Sport Classic screams nostalgia, with elements taken straight out of the 1972 Porsche 911 Carrera RS 2.7. It features the iconic ducktail rear spoiler, with a bubble roof on top and hand-painted racing stripes running along the middle of the bonnet. Completing the look is the customisable number decal on the side and a modern take on the classic 911 ‘Fuchs’ wheels.
On the inside, the retro theme has been continued with brown dual-tone semi-aniline leather upholstery. Even the instrument cluster gets a dash of green, with a retro analogue rev-counter. If you do end up buying the 911 Sport Classic, Porsche will give you a gold 911 plaque along with a watch themed after the car.
Under the hood, this 911 packs a modern 3.7-litre twin-turbo flat-six cylinder engine, which makes 550PS of power, mated to a 7-speed manual gearbox. Speaking of which, the 911 Sport Classic is currently the most powerful 911 you can buy right now with a stick shift.
Porsche has limited the special edition model to just 1250 units worldwide, with none of them expected to arrive on our shores.
