What Its Like To Drive The Retro-Inspired Porsche 911 Sport Classic
Inspired by the 911 models of the 1960s and 1970s, the new Porsche Sport Classic is among the most striking limited editions crafted by Porsche in recent years. With a production limit of 1,250 units, it pays homage not only to the 2010 911 Sport Classic but also to the esteemed Carrera RS 2.7. Key visual elements include a distinctive double-bubble roof, Fuchs-style wheels, and the iconic cowlick ducktail spoiler.
Based on the Porsche 911 Turbo S, this wide-bodied 911 incorporates the engine from the current-generation Porsche 911 Turbo. Porsche fine-tuned the turbocharged 3.7-liter flat-six to produce slightly less power than the Turbo or Turbo S. Generating 543 hp and 442 lb-ft of torque, this 911 Sport Classic channels its power through a 7-speed manual transmission to the rear wheels, establishing itself as the most potent 911 available with a stick.
