Porsche Says It Only Builds Two (!) Identical Sports Cars Each Year

Production of the Porsche 911 and 718 models sits at approximately 25,000 units annually, so it’s only logical to presume there many identical examples rolling out of the factory each year. However, that’s not the case.

Autocar recently had the opportunity to sit down with Porsche plant manager Christian Friedl and discovered that the German car manufacturer typically only produces two identical 911 or 718 models annually.

That astonishing figure pays testament to the personalization options Porsche offers. In addition, there are no less than 39 variants of the 911 and 718 Boxster/Cayman models on the market, allowing customers to pick their perfect ride no matter what their needs and wishes are, so the possible combinations are way too many to count.

Porsche, though, won’t stop here: according to Friedl, the carmaker intends on launching even more options for its vehicles and, before long, it is possible that every single car rolling off the production line will be distinct from all others.

The 718 range was recently updated with the launch of the Boxster Spyder and Cayman GT4. Both feature a high-revving 4.0-liter naturally-aspirated flat-six pumping out 414 HP and 310 lb-ft (420 Nm). To keep with the driver-focused nature of these models, the duo are offered exclusively with a six-speed manual transmission sending power to the rear wheels.

Porsche Exclusive recently unveiled its first take on the new Boxster Spyder, revealing a dark blue example with a host of custom touches and once customer deliveries commence, you can be assured that many more bespoke examples will hit the streets.

    I can believe it. When I was looking for my car I knew exactly what I was looking for. It took me 8 months to find the car I was looking for and I had to travel to Missouri to purchase it.
