In 1963, Porsche presented the original model to the public; fittingly, the special model will be limited to 1,963 cars.

Since its launch – initially as the type 901 – the 911 has excited automotive fans across the globe.

Like the first coupé, the 911 50 Years Edition combines a distinctive silhouette with a rear-mounted, flat-six engine and rear wheel drive.

Yet its efficient performance, active sports suspension and exclusive body styling add contemporary appeal.

Over seven successive generations, the Porsche 911 continues to resolve apparent contradictions – such as between tradition and innovation and performance and efficiency – and has become renowned as the quintessential benchmark sports car.

This special anniversary 911 is based on the 911 Carrera S, but is 'clothed' in the wider body – 44mm broader across the rear wheel arches – that is typically reserved for the all-wheel drive Carrera 4 models.

The unique exterior styling is combined with features that have contributed to the 50-year success story of the car.

For example, the Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM), with special tuning to complement the increased track width, adds to the exceptional cornering dynamics.

The car also features a sports exhaust system for increased emotional character.
