The brand ventured with their most successful model, the Porsche 911 a long time back, about 54 years ago to be precise.
The automobile manufacturer has now built their 1,000,000 model and it is easily the most coveted car not just for the brand but for every other automaker out there.
Achieving such a huge number as a milestone is no easy task and Porsche is obviously going to celebrate it in a huge manner. These celebrations are never complete without a special edition model and the car is coming soon as expected to mark their five decades of successful positioning in the automobile industry. The Porsche 911 Carrera S which marks the brand’s huge milestone will not be sold to the general public and will be put on display in their own museum.
Making it on par with the original model that rolled out of the factory 54 years ago is what the designers are out to achieve. The bespoke personalization is carried out by a dedicated department and there are many design elements which are inspired by the 1963 model. Some of them are made to suit modern day requirements while others are plain nostalgic. The car features leather seats on the interior and feature pepita pattern inspired by the original car. It also has a circular dashboard that looks very retro with silver lining. These add-ons may not be embraced by the current market which is why Porsche decided to restrict their creation to the museum.
The sports steering wheel has always been an important aspect in all Porsche 911 models and it didn’t start late but was in it right from the first edition. It is covered in mahogany rim and also has the Porsche crest from the 1964 model. The proud 1,000,000 logo is marked both on the interior and exterior of the car so as to celebrate the milestone Porsche has achieved over the years. An Irish Green paint job is yet another choice that mark’s Ferry, son of Ferdinand Porsche founder of the brand. His first ever car was green and the tradition continues even now.
While it is made for the museum, the car does pack amazing horsepower on the inside. Under the hood, it uses a kickass powertrain that delivers 445 horsepower and can go from 0 to 62 miles per hour in just 4.1 seconds. The top speed of the model is pegged at 194 mph. The 911 has been traditionally the model associated with the Porsche brand even though they have couple of other amazing cars like the Cayman and the Boxster in their lineup. A world tour has also been planned to showcase the Porsche 911 before bringing it to the museum.
