Porsche 911 Turbo S Exclusive Series

Porsche announced a limited edition of the 911 Turbo S Exclusive Series.  How exclusive is this Porsche 911?  Just 500 units are being hand made for worldwide distribution.

How fast is the Porsche 911?  With a special tune the powerplant is cranking out 607 horses.  These Porsche 911’s will be hand finished by the new Porsche Exclusive Manufaktur at the headquarters in Zuffenhausen. Previously called “Porsche Exclusive”, this in-house workshop focuses on  tailoring unique cars to customer wishes, as well as being producing these limited-edition series.

Porsche 911 Engine

The six cylinder flat 3.8 liter biturbo engine helps the 911 go 0-60 in under three seconds, with a top “track” speed of 205 MPH.  The 911 comes with the active sports chassis and the Sport Chrono package as standard.

That paint job you see is an exclusive Golden Yellow Metallic, highlighted with some carbon fiber pieces. But the car can come in other paint choices. The sport seats are eighteen way adjustable, just in case you need to get the kinks out during the drive.

 But Wait There’s More!

For the first time ever, Porsche 911 customers can have a matching chronograph from Porsche Design configured in the same design as their sports car. The exclusive watch made of lightweight titanium, and its black titanium carbide coating reinforces its sporty design. The carbon dial face is based on the carbon weave stripes on the 911 Turbo S Exclusive Series and finished in the actual paint used on the vehicle.911 Turbo S Exclusive Series Chronograph

But Wait, There’s Even More!!

Customers can also order the leather Exclusive Series luggage set that has been developed especially for customers who buy a vehicle from the limited production run. The luggage set of four pieces (two hold-alls, the day bag and the suit bag) are the perfectly fit for the luggage space available in the 911 Turbo S Exclusive Series.911 Turbo S Exclusive Series Luggage

Be curious how long it takes to see one at a Cars and Coffee?

Porsche 911 Celebrates 50th Anniversary

This year marks the 50th anniversary of the Porsche 911.  For perspective the Corvette is celebrating 60 years with their seventh generation of the American sports car.  This is presently the fifth incarnation of the 911 and is treasured for both its sleek design and focused engineering.  The first model was labeled a “901” but due to trademark issues had to change it to the now iconic 911.

Porsche 911’s Humble Beginnings

It is rare for a model to stay in constant use for half a century, but even the original first generation was known for setting the industry standards for superior engineering.  Imagine that in 1963, the first 911 came with such advanced features as overhead cams, dry-sump oiling, seven-main-bearing bottom end, 5-speed transaxle, 4-wheel disc brakes, rack-and-pinion steering, and advanced independent suspension. There are even cars being manufactured today that can’t hold a candle to that design.

Porsche always had a high level of engineering design but ironically, the fir

st generation Porsche 911’s were blinding fast but treacherous to drive, but over time the handling was improved.  The exterior lines of the 911 seem timeless and stately.

Porsche 911 Celebrations

Across the globe various venues are hosting events to celebrate the 50th Anniversary epoch.  The Silverstone Classic in July had a great event.  Originally hoping for 911

Porsche’s to roar along the circuit, they couldn’t stop the demand and ended up with over 1200 cars hitting the race track. Here’s the details on the event.

You just had to know the Frankfurt Auto show in Porsche’s backyard would do the 911 proud and the factory pulled no punches with a knockout event. Porsche had a driving party at their test track at Weissach,Germany.  And their museum is having a special exhibition as well

Daily Driver Capable

Thanks to its own 50-year racing history, today’s Teutonic 911 is one of the highest-performance cars, but still is tame enough to be a daily driver.  Few cars can claim to be favored by three generations of drivers.
