Porsche will build 1963 examples of the 50th anniversary 911 model – but New Zealand will get only three.
“If we have a higher demand (for the birthday model) we will ask the factory for more, but I don’t think we will get more than three,” said Porsche NZ national sales manager Greg Clarke.
The production run of 1963 vehicles reflects the year the first 911 was unveiled, at the Frankfurt motor show.
The show car was originally badged the 901 but French carmaker Peugeot claimed it had the international rights to three-digit names with zeros in the middle, so the sports car was re-badged 911 for its launch in 1964.
The 50th aniversary 911 comes in three colours – unique Graphite Grey or Geyser Grey, or black. Each of the cars has ‘911 50’ branding on the rear lid, head restraints, rev counter, and door sill plates.
