Porsche has unveiled in Frankfurt a 911 50 Years Edition limited to 1,963 units and priced from 92,257 GBP.

It was 1963 when Porsche introduced the first generation of the 911 and now the Stuttgart-based automaker is celebrating its most important model with a limited-run edition based on the Carrera S but with a Carrera 4-like 44mm wider body at the rear wheel arches. It benefits from Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM) specially modified to match the increased width, along with a sports exhaust system "for increased emotional character."

The 911 50 Years Edition is powered by a flat-six 3.8-liter engine outputting 400 bhp (298 kW) which will send the car to 62 mph (100 km/h) in 4.3 seconds before reaching a top speed of 185 mph (298 km/h) when equipped with the PDK. It will do 32.5 mpg UK (27 mpg US or 8.7 liters / 100 km) with CO2 emissions standing at 224 g/km.

It can be distinguished by the chrome strips on the engine compartment grille's fins as well as by the special trims on the front air inlets. It comes with new 20-inch five-spoke alloys drawing their inspiration from the "Fuchs" wheels fitted for the first time in 1966. Customers will be able to order the car in a black scheme, a darker Graphite Grey or a lighter Geyser Grey metallic paint job.

Aside from the "911 50" badging, the car comes with green labeling on the instruments with white pointer needles and silver caps on the instrument pivot pins as a throwback to the original 911. As standard, the 911 50 Years Edition comes with 14-way adjustable sport seats but for more money the client can choose 18-way Sport Seat Plus.
