The Porsche 911 is arguably one of the world’s most significant sports cars, and it first rolled off the company’s Zuffenhausen plant in 1963. Today, the Stuttgart carmaker reached the momentous milestone of producing their millionth 911 – from the same plant!
To cement the achievement, Porsche built a special one-off that’s based on the Carrera 911 S variant. It’s finished in Irish Green paint – the same colour as the original, and is Ferdinand Porsche’s favourite. Most of the trimmings are purposely created to reflect the original 911 as much as possible, such as the leather seats, inserts and wooden steering wheel. Making this unit extra special is the “1,000,000 911” lettering on the dashboard.
Powering this Carrera S is a 3.0-litre twin turbocharged flat-six paired with Porsche’s Powerkit package, making a healthy 450 hp. Enthusiasts will be delighted to know that it comes with a manual transmission
The Zuffenhausen plant will continue manufacturing the Boxster, Cayman and 911 models, and the team is currently preparing themselves to produce the upcoming all-electric Mission E.
Unfortunately, this particular 911 is not for sale. It will go on a world tour which includes some driving on scenic roads in the Scottish Highlands, Nurburgring, the United States and China before going on display at the Porsche Museum. Apparently, over 70 percent of Porsche 911 (that’s at least 700,000 units!) that they’ve built are still alive and kicking!
