Atlanta, Georgia – Porsche has created an exclusive 911 Carrera S Coupe in recognition of the 50th anniversary of the Porsche Club of America (PCA). The model features a distinctive exterior colour, unique interior styling, commemorative touches, and a more powerful engine. The 911 Club Coupe was unveiled last weekend at PCA’s 50th Annual Porsche Parade in Hershey, Pennsylvania.

Only 50 cars will be available, and will initially be sold only to eligible PCA members. The car features Azurro California blue exterior paint, stainless steel doorsills with the 911 Club Coupe logo, black instrument dials and a numbered badge on the driver’s side door trim.

The Club Coupe is the first in the current generation of Porsche 911 cars to be equipped with the X51 Powerkit. It increases output of the 3.8-litre flat-six engine from 355 to 381 horsepower, and peak torque from 295 to 306 lb-ft, making it the most powerful non-turbocharged engine offered in a North American Porsche 911 production car.

911 Club Coupe pricing begins at Cdn$145,911, but it is anticipated that PCA members in the U.S. and Canada will purchase all 48 cars offered for sale. Information on the purchasing process can be found at www.porsche.com/911clubcoupe. Should any be unsold after August 15, they may be made available to the general public.

One vehicle will be given away as a prize in recognition of the PCA’s Golden Anniversary. The draw is open to eligible U.S. and Canadian PCA members until September 12.
