With its emotive twin-turbocharged flat-six engine and manual gearbox, this limited-edition model pays homage to the iconic 911 models of the past while incorporating distinctive design elements.

Unleashing the Spirit of the 1960s and Early 1970s
Limited to just 1,250 units worldwide, the Porsche Exclusive Manufaktur has meticulously revived the aesthetics of the 1960s and early 1970s. Inspired by its predecessor, the 997-based 911 Sport Classic from 2009, this model draws inspiration from the original 911 (1964 – 1973) and the revered 1972 911 Carrera RS 2.7.
Emotional Concepts Through Heritage Design
“The Heritage Design models embody the utmost emotional expression of the Porsche product strategy,” states Alexander Fabig, Vice President Individualization and Classic. Collaborating with Porsche Exclusive Manufaktur, the Style Porsche design department has reinterpreted the iconic 911 models and equipment spanning the 1950s to the 1980s, breathing new life into design features from those eras.
A Journey Through Time
This release is part of Porsche’s grand plan to launch four limited-edition models over an extended period. The first of these was the captivating 911 Targa 4S Heritage Design Edition, introduced in 2020, which paid homage to the design elements of the 1950s and 1960s.
Reimagining Historical Design Elements
The 2023 Porsche 911 Sport Classic boasts an exclusive selection of design elements that make it truly unique. The wide body, typically reserved for the 911 Turbo models, combines with a fixed rear spoiler reminiscent of the legendary ‘ducktail’ Carrera RS 2.7. The striking double-bubble roof further accentuates the car’s individuality.
Embracing the Sport Grey Metallic
Drawing inspiration from the early Porsche 356’s Fashion Grey paintwork, the new 911 Sport Classic proudly introduces the Sport Grey Metallic paint—a first for any Porsche vehicle. Michael Mauer, Vice President Style Porsche, explains, “Grey is never boring, quite often a statement and always cool.” Additionally, light Sports Grey twin stripes elegantly emphasize the sporting prowess of this exceptional automobile.
A Symphony of Colors
Alongside the exclusive Sport Grey Metallic finish, the 2023 Porsche 911 Sport Classic will be available in solid Black, Agate Grey Metallic, Gentian Blue Metallic, or Paint to Sample (available from October 2022, without contrasting painted stripes). This array of color options allows enthusiasts to tailor their dream car to their unique preferences.
Impeccable Craftsmanship Inside and Out
Stepping inside the 911 Sport Classic, one encounters the iconic Pepita pattern adorning the door panels and seat centres. The two-tone, semi-aniline leather upholstery in Black/Classic Cognac serves as a sophisticated contrast to the exterior hue. Additionally, the revered Heritage Design Classic package, available from September 2022, offers selected interior elements of the new 911 Sport Classic for most current 911 models.
Unleashing Unrivaled Power
Underneath its captivating exterior, the 2023 Porsche 911 Sport Classic hides an impressive powertrain. Featuring a 3.7-litre, twin-turbocharged six-cylinder ‘boxer’ engine, it delivers an astounding 550 PS (405 kW) to the rear wheels. Coupled with a seven-speed manual gearbox, this remarkable vehicle claims the title of the most powerful manual 911 ever produced.
With a top speed of 196 mph and an acceleration from 0-62 mph in just 4.1 seconds, the 911 Sport Classic unleashes a thrilling driving experience. Achieving a fuel consumption of 22.4 mpg Combined WLTP (equivalent to 285 g/km CO2), this car strikes a remarkable balance between performance and efficiency. Furthermore, the auto-blip function of the gearbox compensates for engine-speed differences during downshifts, ensuring seamless gear changes. The standard sports exhaust system delivers an emotional sound experience tailored specifically for this model.
The suspension of the 911 Sport Classic, based on the 911 Turbo and 911 GTS models, meets the highest performance standards. Equipped with Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM), the shock absorbers react instantaneously to dynamic changes. Complementing the PASM, the standard sports suspension offers a lower ride height of 10 millimeters, further enhancing the car’s agility.
