Porsche introduces 911 Club Coupe only for club members… some of them

Article by Christian A., on May 27, 2012

In order to celebrate 60 years since the first Porsche club was founded, the German manufacturer launched a special edition of the 911 Carrera S. As expected, the car will be available only for the Porsche Club members and will be build in a very limited edition of just 13 cars (one will be owned by Porsche, which means customers will get only 12).

Each unit will cot 142,800 euros excluding taxes, but the bigger problem is that around 181,000 Porsche club members will have to fight for these cars as there are around 640 Porsche clubs in 75 countries.

Unfortunately, the car will not be available for Porsche fans who live in India or China. The Porsche 911 Club Coupe will get the same 3.8-liter engine delivering 440 hp and not 400 hp like the standard version.

Moreover, the engine delivers 430 Nm of torque and can push the vehicle from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 4.0 seconds (standard version hits the same speed in 4.3 seconds and in 4.1 seconds when using the Sport Chrono package).

Moreover, the Porsche 911 Club Coupe can be recognized by the special green paint called “Brewster Green” and by the interior color called “Espresso”.

Furthermore, we find Sport Techno 20-inch rims, a Sport Design package which adds a front lip spoiler and a ‘ducktail’ spoiler inspired by the 1973 Carrera RS 2.7. The PASM sports suspension lowers the car by 20 millimeters.

Porsche’s 911 Carrera evolved style can be seen from all angles. Its profile has new designs, bigger alloy wheels, and the more curved windscreen that makes it even sprightlier and more like a coupe. The revisions are typified by the broader front with new headlamps and bigger air intakes on the sides. The wider and changeable outspreading rear spoiler accentuates the new 911 Carrera’s more powerful output. Along with other optimised aerodynamics, it also maintains a majorly lowered lift while still retaining a correspondingly good cd. Restyled, thinner LED rear lights finishes up the rear end’s look.

The 911 Carrera creates a new set of standards for Porsche Intelligent Performance. The pioneering lightweight aluminium-steel body, along with a range of new functions and components, equally increases drive economy and dynamics.

The first passenger car ever to come standard with a seven-speed manual transmission, the new 911 Carrera engineering foundation was on the optional seven-speed Doppelkupplungsgetriebe (PDK). The first six gears have a close ratio giving the driver an excellent capacity for acceleration, and the seventh gear has virtual overdrive traits for even better fuel economy.

The 911 Carrera is also Porsche’s first sports car that has automatic start/stop. This system can almost attain 0.6 litres per 100 km per the New European Driving Cycle (NEDC). The automatic stop/start is combined standard with the PDK and manual transmission. The joint engine and transmission thermal management system and on board electronics recuperation lower the new 911’s fuel use by an additional 0.35 l / 100 km. The new cooling design does not use vent openings in the under body, but it features advantageous aerodynamics that aid performance.
