HOW does 54 + 911 = 1 million?
Well this is the one millionth Porsche 911 produced after 54 years on the production line.
The one-off Porsche 911 Carrera S – commissioned by Porsche itself for display at the Porsche Museum – has been treated to a number of special upgrades in honour of the incredible milestone.
This unique Porker has been given the glitzy treatment by the Porsche Exclusive personalisation department (we didn’t know such a place existed). But we now like them.
Those German boffins have poured hours into meticulous detail to make this 911 so classy including using design elements from the first car back in 1963.
Typically, it’s been done with great taste.
On the inside, the leather seats feature a pepita pattern found on the original, while the circular dashboard instruments are finished with silver surround with a nod to the 60s original.
The sporty steering wheel – complete with its mahogany rim – features the 1964 Porsche crest, which also adorns the bonnet.
A commemorative ‘1,000,000’ logo also appears inside and out – placed within the instrument cluster and on the B-pillars too.
The look is completed by an ‘Irish Green’ paint job, a tribute to founder Ferdinand Porsche’s son Ferry, whose first official 911 was green.
Obviously those Germans, who eat brake horsepower for breakfast, couldn’t just leave this as a cosmetic job.
Therefore, the engine has been tuned to deliver 445bhp producing 62mph in a blink over four seconds all the way to a rather nippy 194mph.
Porsche Chairman Dr Wolfgang Porsche said: “54 years ago, I was able to take my first trips over the Grossglockner High Alpine Road with my father. The feeling of being in a 911 is just as enjoyable now as it was then.
“That’s because the 911 has ensured that the core values of our brand are as visionary today as they were in the first Porsche 356/1 from 1948.”
Although this one-off model is museum bound, it will take a detour via the Nurburgring, US, China and Scottish Highlands.
Hopefully then via my driveway. Reminder: Must put Lottery numbers on tonight.
