Porsche 911 hits a big milestone as millionth model is built

The Porsche celebrates a rather special event with a one-off car as it hits one million 911s built

Porsche has celebrated quite a milestone recently as the 1 millionth 911 rolled off the Zuffenhausen production line. The face and heart of the Porsche brand, the iconic rear-engined sports car has been in production since 1963. Porsche maintain that the 911 is the most strategically important model in the range, and has made a big contribution to Porsche’s current position as the world's most profitable car manufacturer. 

To commemorate the achievement, Porsche has built a Carrera S with numerous exclusive features paying homage to that first 911. Painted in an original Irish Green hue, Porsche has also adorned the car with satin aluminium finished wing mirrors and window surrounds, a sports exhaust system, 20-inch Carrera Sport wheels and gold badging.

Inside there are yet more links to the original including a timber finished steering wheel, houndstooth seating upholstery, extra metal detailing around the instrument cluster and retro green backlighting.

The 911 represents the excellence of engineering that has become a Porsche trademark, a sentiment proven by the fact 70% of all 911s ever built are still on the road. Last year alone Porsche delivered over 32,000 911s to customers, proving that despite being on sale for over 50 years, demand is not slowing for the immortal sport car. 

Porsche plans on touring the special 911 around the globe, featuring on drives in the Scottish highlands, the USA and China before returning the car for permanent display at the Porsche Museum.
