Porsche 911 50 Years Edition

The Porsche 911 50 Years Edition is a birthday treat and greatest hits package in one

The Porsche 911’s 50th birthday celebrations continue with a new special edition model.

The 911 50 Years Edition launches in September, and in a less than subtle nod to the 911’s birth year, it will be limited to 1963 units.

It recalls the 911 Sport Classic special of 2010, with unique grey paint colours (dubbed Geyser Grey, seen here, and a darker Graphite Grey, while black is also an option) and Fuchs-inspired 20in alloy wheels, while it combines the rear-wheel-drive 911 Carrera S engine and underpinnings with the all-wheel-drive C4’s 44mm-wider body.

The Carrera S drivetrain brings with it a 3.8-litre flat-six engine, boasting 394bhp and combining a 4.3sec 0-62 time and 186mph top speed with 32.5mpg fuel economy if you specific the optional seven-speed PDK twin-clutch gearbox. A seven-speed manual is standard.

The 50 Years Edition is designed a little like a 911 greatest hits package, with some of the model’s headline features fitted as standard. Among these are PASM adaptive dampers, PTV torque vectoring (including a limited-slip differential) and the extremely sonorous sports exhaust, as well as more sensible niceties like satnav and Bi-Xenon headlights. 14-way adjustable sports seats are standard, and wear a decidedly retro 1960’s ‘Pepita’ tartan design.

The Porsche 911 50 Years Edition is unveiled at the 2013 Frankfurt motor show in September, the month UK deliveries also begin. It is priced from £92,257.

One of the sharpest hot hatchbacks money can buy right now, despite weird branding and a very long name (which we’ve simplified for you).
