997 Sport Classic
I recall way back in issue 146 Total 911 first broke the news that a 991 Speedster was on the way. Of course this turned out to be true, and I’m impressed by how accurate your render turned out to be – even the launch colour of Guards red was correct! In that article from issue 146, your sources also said we could expect to see a 991 Sport Classic. With the fact Porsche only ever made one generation of Sport Classics previously – only 250 were hand built by Porsche Exclusive – and the 991 generation is coming to a close, is this still the case? although the 992 generation has now been revealed, porsche is still building certain 991-generation cars well into next year. this includes batch two 991.2 Gt3 rss, 991-generation Speedsters plus, of course, the 991 Gt2 rs-based 935 car from the Motorsport department (more information on this in our Update section on page
10). Whispers of another special-edition 991-generation car remain, with this likely to be a 991 Sport classic or Gt3 touring cabriolet – or both! as ever, we’ll keep our readers firmly in the know as and when developments occur.
