To commemorate the achievement, Porsche has built a Carrera S with numerous exclusive features paying homage to that first 911. Painted in an original Irish Green hue, Porsche has also adorned the car with satin aluminium finished wing mirrors and window surrounds, a sports exhaust system, 20-inch Carrera Sport wheels and gold badging.
Porsche says that the 911 remains “the most strategically important model in the product range,” and has made “a huge contribution to maintaining Porsche’s position as one of the most profitable car manufacturers in the world.”
For one thing, the Nordschleife number sits reasonably close to the chronograph performance achieved by the carmaker itself. Back in January, Porsche announced the first turbocharged GTS in history needs 7:22 to go round the infamous German track.
If you’re reading this from the armchair installed in the garage hosting your Porsche collection, you shouldn’t fret about your dinner associates getting their hands on this Carrera S. Upon completing a world tour involving a Nurburgring stint, the milestone Neunelfer will be parked inside the Porsche Museum.
