The special anniversary 911 is based on the 294 kW (400 hp) Carrera S, but wears the wider body usually reserved for the all-wheel drive Carrera 4 model. Other defining features include high-gloss window frames and SportDesign mirrors, the Porsche Dynamic Light System, chrome trim strips on the front air inlets, engine compartment grille and between the rear lights, ‘911 50’ badging on the rear lid and Fuchs-inspired 20-inch alloy wheels in matte black with machine-polished centres.
Moving inside, there’s a nod to the past with green labelling on the instruments and white needles with silver caps on the instrument pivot pins, while the material on the seat’s centre section evokes the ‘Pepita’ tartan design seen on 1960s 911s. Agate Grey or black leather can be specified, with 18-way Sport Seats Plus available as an option. Elsewhere, the centre console, doors and dashboard use brushed aluminium panels from the Porsche Exclusive programme.
