Porsche 911 Sport Classic: New Special Edition Model with Ducktail Spoiler and 408HP, Only 250 Units

Now here’s a 911 to drool all over; Porsche’s special edition 911 Sport Classic that will be presented for the first time at this month’s 2009 Frankfurt Motor Show and go on sale in January 2010 with production limited to just 250 cars. Based on the rear-wheel drive 911 Carrera S, the Sport Classic pays tribute to the brand’s storied past blending retro styling cues with several performance upgrades.

The most distinguishable feature of the Sport Classic is without any doubt the ducktail rear spoiler that harks back to the iconic 1973 Carrera RS 2.7. The special edition model also gets a double-bubble roof, new front apron and side skirts as well as wider rear fenders and a set of delicious, custom-made 19-inch wheels with their rim star painted black that echo the Fuchs rims worn by 911s of the past.

The body is finished in a exclusive Sport Classic Grey paint with light grey racing stripes.

The 911 Sport Classic’s interior also gets a retro touch with woven leather and yarn sport seats complemented with light-grey piping and on the door panels while the dashboard including a wide range of inserts and add-on components is finished in Espresso Nature natural leather.

But the 911 Sport Classic isn’t only about style as Porsche’s engineers tweaked the regular 3.9-liter direct-injection flat-six through the introduction of a newly developed resonance intake manifold with six vacuum-controlled switching flaps, increasing output by 23 horsepower for a total of 408 HP. Power is transferred to the rear wheels via Porsche’s six-speed manual gearbox.

Other highlights include the wider rear body (44 mm or 1.73-in.) and the wider track on the rear axle, the PCCB Porsche Ceramic Composite Brakes and the revised PASM sports suspension that lowers the car’s ride height by 20 mm or 0.79-inches, as well as the standard limited-slip rear differential.

Sales of the Porsche 911 Sport Classic are starting in January 2010 with the base price of the car without value-added tax and national specifications set at €169,300.
