Good write up of the 911 50 years edition.

A bit disppointed with the concept. A 50th anniversary model should be very special!
It will be better if they sell the car for £93000 with the C4 wide body, GT3 PDK box (push up to change down and pull to change up) and slot the 430ps engine (the powerkit) at the back.
That will be my dream 991!

Very nice piece of kit. Like GT4 mentions above, they may have missed a trick that an X51 PowerKit is not standard (I assume it will be optional). The previous 40th Anni had the X51 as did the extortionately priced 997 Sport Classic as standard equipment.

I think the chrome bits may not work on some colours but overall very nice.

I too am surprised that the Powerkit isn't included (maybe to keep the cost the right side of £100k) - but I think they've done a good job.

Agreed on all counts GT4 except that rear grill. I like that and is smarter than the 4's reflective strip (+ obviously its only rear wheel drive = Very Happy )

Mmmm very nice indeed Thumb


I meant the top air-intake grill (complete with bizarrely anachronistic LED high-level brake light Confused), not the strip between the spoiler and PU.

On the darker car it looks OK (perhaps as it is further away), but on the cream coloured car Yuk




Ah ok yes I see. I'll still take one though Smile

I love the Farrow and Ball paint colour on this one Thumb

1993 Porsche 964 Anniversary

Too common - 1,963 units Hand

I do like it. Now all I need to do is get my car included in the inevitable OPC showcase event Rolling Eyes

Not sure......

I dont like the seats at all. Leather seats painted to look like fabric for the centre panels..... Minging. Hand

I also don't like all the logos everywhere. Why does it have to have writing all over it? Everyone knows its a porsche so surely that doesnt need to be there?

I do like the spec however but agree they've missed a trick by not putting the more powerful unit in the rear. PASM, PSE, Fancy headlights etc etc. and a 2wd widebody (rather than a 2wd coupe with a turbo / c4s front end) make it the 991 to own.

How much would a 4s with these options be to spec? (and can you delete some of the writing)??

Just priced one similar up without the powerkit at 101k.

Powerkit is an extra 10k

I see that it has arrived on the configurator. Options fiends will be able to add the powerkit if they want and it is possible to push it up to the £120k range if you like your leather trim and so on Surprised

That doesn't make sense to me (their market positioning, not your analysis), if they don't think they can shift 1,963 limited edition "50th Anniversary" specials globally in a year unless "bargain basement" priced, means they obviously don't think it is actually that desirable, which kind of defeats the object.

They had no problems shifting the already mentioned SportClassic for almost twice the money of the subsequent SportClassic-lite (GTS).

Most previous special editions (Annis, Millenium, Speedster etc) pretty much had the kitchen sink thrown at them.

Pretty poor show you have to modify the 50th Anni yourself.

It also dilutes the purity of the supposedly unique model definition if every owner can have such substantially different build specs.

They might as well allow you to spec a normal Carrera S as you like, but with an "Anni pack" for the hideous tartan and gaudy badging.
