Article by Christian Andrei, on January 22, 2015

In order to celebrate the 60th anniversary of the Porsche Club of America, the German manufacturer introduced a limited-edition 911 model. Dubbed the Porsche 911 (991) GTS Club Coupe, the new model will see a 60 unit limited-production run and each model will be based on the recently introduced 911 Carrera GTS.

Moreover, the special edition model will be easily distinguished thanks to the unique color named “Club Blau”, created exclusively for this anniversary edition. As we said, the 911 GTS Club Coupe is based on the Carrera GTS, which means it features the 44 mm wider body of the 911 Carrera 4 models with a rear wheel drive platform.

Furthermore, the coupe features SportDesign side mirrors, black framed Bi-Xenon headlights fitted with Porsche’s Dynamic Light System as well as taillights tinted in black. Furthermore, the vehicle features the black “Club Coupe” model designations on the doors as well as the SportDesign package and a special ducktail rear spoiler.

The 20-inch Sport Classic wheels painted in semi-gloss black with polished wheels centers and rim complete the design.

Inside, the vehicle comes fitted with the GTS Interior Package. The stitching, seat belts and rev counter are held in contrasting Carmine Red, while the dashboard trim strips, door trim and center console are finished in carbon fiber.

Meanwhile, the steering wheel features a Red 12 o’clock marker as well as two-tone stitching in Carmine Red and Blue. The center compartment lid is embossed with “60”, while the dashboard trim shows the ”GTS Club Coupe 60 Years Porsche Club of America” lettering.

The stainless steel door sills also show the “GTS Club Coupe” lettering. Extended Club Coupe Package is an unique option and consists of a keyfob painted in “Club Blau”, a leather key pouch as well as leather-edged floor mats. Personalized indoor car cover is available as an option.

Under the hood, there is a 3.8-liter boxer engine producing 430 hp and 440 Nm (324 lb-ft) of torque at 5,750 rpm. Just like the standard vehicle, the engine can push the vehicle from 0 to 60 mph (96 km/h) in 3.8 seconds when equipped with the optional PDK dual-clutch seven-speed transmission, while top speed is 190 mph (305 km/h) on the vehicles fitted with a manual transmission and 189 mph (304 km/h) on models equipped with the PDK.

The Sport Exhaust system is fitted as standard and features black chrome tips. Furthermore, the 911 GTS Club features the Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM), which incorporates the adaptive dampers and a 10 mm lower ride. And this is not all as the coupe also gets the Porsche Torque Vectoring (PTV) as well as the Sport Chrono Package. Pricing starts at $136,060 and doesn’t include the destination charge of $995.
