911 50th anniversary of Porsche Design

911 50th anniversary of Porsche Design

24/1/2022

Porsche congratulates Porsche Design on its golden jubilee, and in celebration of 50 years, has created two very special cars: the exclusive Porsche 911 Edition 50Y Porsche Design and a historical 911 S 2.4 Targa from the founding year of Porsche Design in 1972, which has been faithfully restored by Porsche Classic.

Uniting these celebration models is their colour scheme, which, in recalling the legendary Chronograph I designed by Professor Ferdinand Alexander Porsche in 1972, sees both the exterior and the interior dominated by the colour black. Alongside them, Porsche Design is also presenting a new, limited edition of the Chronograph 1 timepiece. The Porsche Museum will also be celebrating the anniversary with a special exhibition, opening on 19 January 2022.

Production of the new 911 Edition 50Y Porsche Design is limited to 750 cars worldwide. It features numerous styling highlights inspired by the iconic designs of F.A. Porsche. In addition to the all-black exterior, familiar leitmotifs include the classic checked Sport-Tex seat centre panels and the red-coloured second-hand of the Porsche Design Subsecond clock in the Sport Chrono Package, which is standard.

Based on the 911 Targa GTS, the new car is powered by an emotive flat-six cylinder, 480 PS, twin-turbocharged, rear-mounted, 3.0-litre engine. Combined with the eight-speed dual-clutch PDK transmission, a maximum speed of 191 mph is possible where permitted. With Launch Control, it can accelerate from 0 to 62 mph in 3.5 seconds. A seven-speed manual transmission is offered as an option.

The 911 Edition 50Y Porsche Design is on sale now and will arrive in Porsche Centres from April 2022.
