2010 Porsche 911 Sport Classic
Mississauga, Ontario – Porsche will unveil its ultra-exclusive, limited-edition 911 Sport Classic at the Frankfurt Motor Show later this month. Only 250 vehicles will be produced, built by Porsche Exclusive, the company’s specialist department, which took three years to develop the model.
The Sport Classic includes a newly-developed double-dome roof, and while it is based on the rear-wheel drive Carrera S, it features the wider rear body of the Carrera 4S, with a wider rear track. It also includes a SportDesign front apron with unique spoiler lip and fixed ducktail rear spoiler.
The Sport Classic uses a 3.8-litre flat-six with direct fuel injection, along with a newly-developed resonance intake manifold with six vacuum-controlled switching flaps that increase power by 23 horsepower, to 408 hp. It uses a six-speed manual gearbox exclusively, and comes standard with ceramic composite brakes, a lowered PASM sports suspension, mechanical rear axle differential, and custom-made 19-inch wheels.
The Sport Classic will not be available in North America. Worldwide sales to other markets will begin in January 2010, at a base price of €169,300.
