Porsche builds its millionth 911

The milestone-marking 911 is simple. Starting out as a base 911 Carrera S, the car is finished in Irish Green. That’s complimented by gold badges on the outside, plus hounstooth seat inserts and wood trim bits on the inside. It’s a surprisingly tasteful combination and certainly fits the milestone. Oh, and proving just how much Porsche cares about manual transmissions, the millionth 911 has three pedals.

In commemoration of the millionth 911, Porsche released a video showing the evolution of the model, charting how many were built up to each generation change. From 1963 to 1998, when the last air-cooled model was completed, Porsche had built 443,134 911s in total. Around that time, Porsche introduced the 996-generation 911, which was the first to be water-cooled.

If you think this car is going to some person who paid a princely sum for it, you’d be wrong. This car belongs to Porsche AG. First, it’s going on a world tour, driving itself around the Nurburgring, the USA, China and everywhere in between. After that, it will head to its final resting place — the Porsche Museum. You can’t let a piece of history like this get away, after all.
