June 11, 2013: German luxury car maker, Porsche has now announced to launch a special edition version of its flagship car 911 to celebrate the 50th anniversary of this legendary product. The car will be launched globally including India in September, however only 1963 units of this car will be sold globally. The Porsche 911 50 years edition will make its debut at the International Motor Show in Frankfurt in September this year, while the bookings have already begun. The special anniversary edition of 911 will come powered by a 3.8-litre flat-six engine that produces massive 400bhp and touches 0-100kmph in mere 4.5 seconds, with a top speed of 300kmph.
With Porsche celebrating the 50th anniversary of the 911 this year, it’s fitting that specialist classic car auctioneer, Historics at Brooklands, has assembled a vibrant nine-strong showcase of the air-cooled marque, from 1970 to 1991, for its forthcoming sale at Brooklands Museum on August 31. Vigorous bidding at the last quarterly sales saw a clean sweep of nine of the Stuttgart marque finding new owners. Then, as now, Historics’ very own Porsche parade included models which have been meticulously-restored and exquisitely presented in the guise of the most special of 911s to many a purist – the 1973 2.7RS.read more
