Porsche reveals retro-styled Porsche 911 Sport Classic

The new arrival’s bespoke livery is inspired by the Fashion Gray paint first seen on the Porsche 356 and features lighter-coloured, hand-painted racing stripes and customisable, numbered decals on the sides. Inside the car, the door panels and seats are finished with two-tone upholstery that uses Porsche’s classic Pepita houndstooth design.

But it’s the characteristic ducktail rear spoiler and 1970s-style Fuchs alloy wheels that most obviously mark the Sport Classic out from its standard range-mates and link it visually with its 1972 inspiration, a model than now ranks among the most collectable 911 variants ever produced .

Alexander Fabig, Porsche’s customization and classic boss, said: “The Heritage Design models represent the most emotionally driven concepts of the Porsche product strategy.

“This unique approach sees the Style Porsche design department working with Porsche Exclusive Manufaktur to reinterpret iconic 911 models and equipment from the 1950s through to the 1980s and to revive design features from those decades.”

A total of 1250 examples will be made, with prices starting from £209,540 in the UK. Orders are open from 28 April 2022 and deliveries will start in July. The right-hand-drive version of the car will make its debut at this year’s Goodwood Festival of Speed.
