997 Sport Clas­sic

Total 911 - - Views - Kris Leed­ham

dear Sir,

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.
