PORSCHE CLASSIC BUILDS A CLASSIC 911 USING GENUINE PARTS

Porsche_911_frontNostalgia is the flavour of the moment with carmakers. We recently did a piece on Aston Martin’s replica James Bond DB5. Now comes news from Porsche Classic has built a highly desirable collector’s item, the last 911 Turbo with an air-cooled engine – 20 years after the end of series production.

The 993-generation 911 Turbo is based on an original bodyshell, and the vehicle’s appearance is just as special as its history, being painted in Golden Yellow Metallic as featured on the 2018 911 Turbo S Exclusive Series.

The black wheels are highlighted by Golden Yellow design accents, while the seats and interior trim are finished in black with Golden Yellow details.

This classic sportscar will have its world premiere at the Porsche Rennsport Reunion in Laguna Seca (USA) on September 27, 2018. It will be limited to use on private tracks.
