Porsche 911 (991) 50th Anniversary Edition gets a price tag and more power in the US

Article by Christian Andrei, on June 5, 2013

Porsche announced that the 911 (991) 50th Anniversary Edition will cost $124,100 in the United States, without the $950 destination charge. For those who don’t know, the German manufacturer will build only 1963 units but didn’t say how many will reach stateside.

What is even more interesting is that for the United States market, the 911 50th Anniversary Edition will be equipped as standard with a Powerkit, which increases the engine output to 430 hp and includes the Sport Chrono Paclage.

The 911 (991) 50th Anniversary Edition zooms from 0 to 60 mph (96 km/h) in 4.2 seconds (3.8 seconds with PDK) and has a top speed of 186 mph or 300 km/h (185 mph or 299 km/h with the PDK). The Euro-spec 911 (991) 50th Anniversary Edition is powered by the same 3.8-liter engine but on this market the car delivers 400 hp.

So, the United States might be the perfect place to buy the new limited edition. For $124,100, the customers will get a stylish 911 featuring the wide body, which is typically reserved for the all-wheel drive Carrera 4 models, but also special 20-inch wheels, chrome strips on the front air inlets, fins and engine compartment grille, and the Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM) as well as the Porsche Dynamic Light System (PDLS).

Two unique colors are available, a dark graphite and a lighter geyser grey, as well as a black monochrome. The special edition 911 will also carry a two-tone 3D-effect badge on the rear lid with the numbers “911 50”.

The full-leather interior is designed in agate grey or black with decorative stitching. The vehicle features 14-way sport seats or optional 18-way sport seats plus, while the gear shift or selector lever matches the decorative panels on the dashboard, doors and center console in brushed aluminum.
