Porsche Planning "Something Special" For 911 50th Birthday

According to the Mayan calendar, 12/21/12 marks the end of civilization as we know it. But according to me, in 2013 there’s a new Porsche 911 special edition coming, and the Mayans can cork it because I am not missing that. Spoken by August Achleitner, aka, Porsche’s 911 product line director, he promised that them crazy Germans “did not forget (the 50th anniversary)” and that “there is something prepared, something special.” This report from Motoring.com.au, says that we will indeed be able to bask in the glory that is a 50th anniversary special edition; of which, we’re not completely certain. Mr. 911 (Achleitner) also went on to say “when the market development drops and the sales drop or we come to the end of a life cycle then it makes sense to make other varieties.” While we’re not completely certain what Porsche does have planned, be forewarned, we will completely flood you with all the 911 special edition information as it becomes available to us.
