One thing you can expect this 2023 Porsche 911 Sport Classic to bring out too well is outstanding performance. According to Porsche, the car is wild at heart - and with a 3.7-liter bi-turbo boxer engine that can output 550 PS, we're inclined to agree. While the top speed hasn't been revealed yet, we do know that this beast of a machine will be able to go from 0 to 100 km/h in just 3.7 seconds. With a manual transmission and rear-wheel drive, the 911 is said to be the current and most powerful manual 911 model. The exclusive 7-speed manual transmission offers exceptional rear wheels powering for a joyous ride. The clutch is light, and the shifter has a precise throw. The engine mapping has been revised to deliver output compatible with the manual transmission, making this car extremely fun to drive. The brake system has been upgraded as well, with the addition of 6-piston monobloc aluminum fixed calipers at the front and 4-piston equivalents at the rear. This ensures that the Sport Classic can handle all that power and stop on a dime when needed. The suspension has also been retuned to provide even better handling and stability.
The 2023 911 Classic interior is nothing short of luxurious, with top-of-the-line materials used throughout. The seats are upholstered in black Nappa leather and semi-aniline leather in classic cognac, and the interior trim is made of open-pored wood. There is also a limited edition plaque on the dashboard, making each of the 1,250 vehicles unique. The 2023 911 exterior is just as impressive as the interior, with a wide-body that gives it a Turbo look. The only difference is that this particular model doesn't come with the side air intake characteristic of the Turbo. The car is available in four exterior colors: Black, Agate Grey Metallic, Sports Grey Metallic, and Gentian Blue Metallic. The finest materials are used throughout the 2023 Porsche 911 Sport Classic, both inside and out. This is a truly luxurious car that will attract attention wherever it goes.
On the outside, the 2023 911 Sport Classic looks just as menacing as it sounds. It has a wide body that gives it a Turbo look, complete with flared rear bodywork. The only difference is that this particular model doesn't come with the side air intake characteristic of the Turbo. It also has a unique special aesthetic with a wide body in the 911 Turbo look. This exclusive look sets it apart from any other 911 model. The car also has a distinctive rear that will cause a sensation. The ducktail is essentially the same as the original "ducktail" of the Porsche 911 Carrera RS 2.7, which was based on a prototype for that generation. The combination of light-sport grey and double stripes results in an unmistakable look that'll set the heart of any Porsche enthusiast racing. Paint to Sample complements the color palette. The car will have the historic crest from 1963; the "PORSCHE" lettering will be golden and have orange stripes. That means it will bring a masterpiece from the past into the future in some style. You will also love to hear that the car has an individually selectable starting number in a circular design that'll represent a golden racing era. Lollipop and "PORSCHE" lettering have a color-coordinated design, double stripes, and the same sports grey found on the previous 911s. The 20/21-inch Sport Classic wheels are painted in black (high-gloss) with a central lock, and the historic crest on the wheel hub cover is another amazing feature of this car.
Time flies - it was just yesterday when the original Porsche 911 was introduced at the 1963 Frankfurt Motor Show. Approximately 50 years later, Porsche is presenting a very special anniversary model at the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show: the 911 Sport Classic. This unique car pays tribute to one of the most legendary models in Porsche history - the 911 Carrera RS 2.7 of 1973 - and combines its genes with the current 911 generation. With a power output of 450 hp, the 911 is the most powerful normally aspirated six-cylinder engine fitted in a street-legal 911. This engine and a specially tuned chassis result in driving dynamics that are on par with those of a race car. According to Porsche, this limited-edition model will be one of the most exclusive and collectible 911s ever built. And we have to agree - the car is sure to become a future classic. So if you're lucky enough to get your hands on one, hang onto it tight - it's sure to be a valuable asset in years to come.
