Have been reading about the 911 Sport Classic to be released in 2010

Have had thoughts of going for broke and buying one but the price differential is huge

Should I spend the money on therapy!

Is it way too much for a top top spec C2S - very different though

Thoughts welcomed

Way overprice and I think those bodykit spoil the classic 911 lines.
I think the best looking 911 is the one posted a few months ago in Pistonhead. Its call Pon Edition---available in Holland only!

So is this what we all believed was the 998 being tested?

Double roof, pipes and spoiler suggest it might be!

Sorry if someone's already said this. I'm in Schiphol Airport and my flight was called 5min ago!!!!

Spoiler is more of a marketing ploy

although that Domed Roof is of interest as it all depends on what data Porsche release about it's benefits

2 units have been assigned to SA. Its priced crazy but then its still cheaper than what a used Gallardo sells for in this country....between the 2 there simply is no choice. If POrsche SA give me enough back for my wife's 997 Carrera S Cab....i would do the deal with a beeg smile on my dial Laughing Laughing . The car is beautiful, rare and special. They should really have perked up the performance though and offered some kind of LIGHT version too.

In 2011 Paragon had a 12 month old one with 72 miles on it for sale at £139,995.

After several months it was reduced to £119,995.

8 years on .......... a similar car has just been sold at auction for over £500k.

So no, I’m conclusion the OP does not need therapy. Or they may do if they did not buy one!

And actually it brings into focus the relative value of a GTS which is mechanically identical.

I agree Rob - aside from the very limited prodn. numbers and aesthetics, very much the same.

They are all wide bodied I think but is it 2 or 4 wd? Pdk or manual?
I know it's got the mag.double bubble roof, Fuchs and ducktail / front aero, and only came in that greyish shade. Are they all coco and houndstooth inserts inside - beautiful and interesting interior. Perhaps inspiration for the R?

As you can probably tell, I've never seen one....

There is one that lives locally I’ve seen a few times... great looking (and sounding) car in the metal.

All 2wd manual with the wide body so unique in that.

There is some lot who build a replica based on a 997, I forget who.

There’s also the SPASM and PCCBs. I like it. Shame there were not more.

That roof panel is something I tried to get for my car. However you can only buy one if you have a Sport Classic and even if you own one you have to produce evidence (photo) that the old one has been damaged in order to have Porsche sell you a new roof panel.

2007 Porsche 997 Turbo

PostPosted: Sun Mar 17, 2019 10:21 pm    Post subject: Reply with quote

A friend of mine has one & I almost pulled the trigger on another after seeing his. One of my life's biggest regrets is not doing it when I had the opportunity!

Could have had one for 100k + chopping in the turbo... If only I'd known!

I can tell you that yes, they are all wide bodied RWD & drive like any other 997.2... Superb!

My mate's has probably been one of the few not garaged all it's life, having done most of the UK, Ireland and a Euro tour. I think it's currently sitting at around 17k miles, but sadly has now become a garage queen as the value has increased so much.

The photographs don't do them justice either. They truly are a beautiful car in the metal.
Also worth noting, that when released, if you specced a normal C2s to the same as a S.C. the cost would have been about the same, so not madness, that's for sure!
