Revamped Porsche 911 Sport Classic takes packs a punch

….production limited to 1250 globally 


Porsche luxury sports automakers are not leaving anything to chance when it comes to design and technology that complements its age-old tradition of comfort and safety.

Not only does this new edition sport a unique exterior and interior design package that harks back to some of Porsche’s legendary models from the past, but it also happens to be the company’s most powerful manual model to date.

However, the new edition’s power is delivered the old-fashioned way, to the rear wheels only through a seven-speed manual gearbox. Worldwide production of the new Porsche 911 Sport Classic is limited to just 1250 units.

There is a modern concession, however, in the auto-blip function that provides a brief rev burst when shifting down, in order to compensate for engine speed differences between gears. This, and the standard sports exhaust system aim to treat owners to a more emotive soundtrack.

Buyers will also get to enjoy a full range of dynamic features, including Rear Axle Steering, PASM active suspension management, Dynamic Chassis Control and the Sport Chrono Package.

As the second in a series of Heritage Design models, and following the 911 Targa 4S Heritage Design Edition of 2020, the new 911 Sport Classic can be told apart by numerous design tweaks that honour the model’s heritage.

Most notable of these is the ‘ducktail’ fixed rear spoiler inspired by the iconic Carrera RS 2.7. It is further distinguished by a ‘double bubble’ roof and carbon fibre reinforced plastic bonnet which dips in the centre. The new model also inherits its wide body format from the 911 Turbo.

Its wheels, which measure 20-inches upfront and 21-inches at the back, are a modern reinterpretation of the classic Fuchs design.

As for exterior paint options, the 911 Sport Classic is available in a new Sport Grey Metallic colour, which was inspired by the Fashion Grey paintwork of earlier Porsche 356 models. 

The cabin is even more of a blast from the past, with seat centres and door panels finished in Pepita cloth upholstery, contrasted by semi-aniline leather in black and Classic Cognac. However, clients seeking something more subtle can opt for a single-tone black leather interior.

Porsche is also making a unique watch available to those who purchase this product, complete with a dial that is configurable to match the vehicle.
