Forty exclusive cars for 40 years of Turbo.
Back in 1974, Porsche brought the 911 Turbo (930) to the market and the ‘Widowmaker’ raised the performance bar in the sports car world. Twelve years later, Porsche Exclusive was established as a department that was dedicated to giving special clients their own custom-tailored vehicles. The two are coming together again with the new Porsche Exclusive 911 Turbo S GB Edition to celebrated 40 years of the 911 Turbo with a limited-run of 40 vehicles.
The new Porsche 911 Turbo S GB Edition brings some classic styling cues from the original 930 Turbo along with exclusive appointments that set it in a league of its own for the UK market. The supercar has the same twin-turbocharged 3.8-liter flat-six cylinder engine with 560 horsepower and 516 lb-ft. of torque. All of the bells and whistles come standard as well along with Sport Chrono Plus that includes dynamic engine mounts and Porsche Ceramic Composite Brakes (PCCB). The eye-popping 3.1-second 0-62 mph acceleration time and 197 mph top speed are also part of the complete package.
On the 911 Turbo S GB Edition, Porsche Exclusive wanted to bring the classic styling cues of the 930-generation 911 Turbo to the modern era. The new model features black-finished Sport Classic wheels, black-finished door handles, and the upper portion of the rear spoiler is also in black, paying homage to the original ‘whale tail’. Running along the bottom sills of the supercar is black ‘Porsche’ lettering that contrasts the three available colors of GT Silver metallic, White, and Guards Red.
Inside, Porsche Exclusive had a bit more fun. The 911 Turbo S GB Edition was equipped with a black leather interior with Guards Red stitching, a SportDesign steering wheel with Guards Red center marker and stitching, Guards red seat belts, and carbon fiber interior trim with PDK gear lever. Bespoke floor mats with Guards Red stitching and personalized carbon fiber door sills with illuminated ‘911 Turbo S – Exclusive GB Edition’ lettering decorate the lower-half of the cabin. As a special touch, the center arm rest features an embossed Union flag.
The Porsche Exclusive 911 Turbo S GB Edition will be limited to just 40 units – one for every year of the 911 Turbo. Each vehicle will come with complementary indoor car cover, a photo book documenting the production, design sketches, and key pouch with Guards Red stitching. The new limited-edition model is currently available for order in the UK market at Porsche Centers for £150,237.
