The 50th Anniversary Edition is rear-wheel drive but uses the wider bodyshell from the four-wheel-drive Carrera 4 that not only makes it look more muscular than a standard Carrera S, it also means that there’s a wider track and revised suspension settings.
Porsche Torque Vectoring, which includes a mechanical limited-slip differential, is an optional extra on the Carrera S but it comes as standard fit on the 50th Anniversary Edition. Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM), the marque’s impressive adaptive damping system, is also included. The familiar 3.8-litre flat-six, which develops 394bhp at 7400rpm, is carried over unchanged and the paddle-shift PDK gearbox was available as an option at extra cost.
Over and above the standard car, the most readily identifiable upgrades include the Fuchs-inspired 20-inch alloy wheels, the darkened headlight surrounds and the chrome highlights across the engine cover. Geyser Grey paintwork is specific to the 50th Anniversary Edition, while a darker shade of grey and the standard Carrera S hue Basalt Black were also available. Inside, cloth seat inserts and a dash-mounted plaque set this limited-edition model apart from the rest of the range.
In Sport Plus mode, the car shakes itself down and really comes alive. Support at each corner is ramped up – although since PASM is adaptive it still works on uneven surfaces – throttle response is sharpened, and a brilliant throttle-blip function perfectly matches engine and road speeds on the way down the gears.
The 50th Anniversary Edition offered here has covered just 15418 Km from new with two owners and has Porsche dealer service history. With the look and feel of a ‘new’ car, this is a real chance to own a limited edition 911 at a very enticing guide price.
This was the second retrospectively-styled 911 that Porsche launched in the space of a few years. The 997-based Sport Classic of 2010 has since become a true collectors’ item and the 50th Anniversary Edition has a similar cachet.
Our car is fully checked and Porsche approved for buyer peace of mind and delivered with the up to date service, spare key and books.
