Limited Edition Porsche 911 Sport Classic Revives Ducktail Spoiler

via Motorauthority - http://www.motorauthority.com/blog/1...cktail-spoiler

"A legend is back. Porsche today unveiled a modern interpretation of its legendary 1973 Carrera RS 2.7, complete with a 'ducktail' spoiler and ‘Fuchs-style’ custom alloy wheels. The new car is called the 911 Sport Classic and it’s set to grace the automaker’s stand at this month’s Frankfurt auto show.

The latest model will be limited to just 250 units worldwide when it goes on sale early next year and both right- and left-hand-drive models will be available.

Other unique elements of the car include its 'double bubble' roof, similar to the design seen on the Carrera GT supercar and some of Porsche’s racing cars, as well as a new front spoiler, bi-xenon headlamps with black surrounds and the Sport Chrono Package Plus.

Although based on the Carrera S, the 911 Sport Classic gets the 44 mm wider body of the Carrera 4S and a 400 horsepower version of the legendary 3.8-liter flat-six engine. The extra power is courtesy of a new intake and engine management system, as well as modified cylinder heads.

There is also the new variable-resonance intake system, featuring six vacuum-controlled flaps that optimize the oscillation of air in the intake manifold for a better cylinder charge. This ensures there is the perfect amount of air in the combustion chamber at all times to optimize torque, which peaks at 310 pound-feet at 4,200 rpm.

The end result is a 0-62 mph time of just 4.6 seconds and a top speed of 187 mph. Other modifications include a 20 mm suspension lowering kit, a limited-slip differential, and carbon-ceramic brakes."

Really dig that rear spoiler - looks great. Not digging the front spoiler too much.

I agree the front is busy but I still give it a solid Huba Huba.

And if the factory is saying 4.6 0-62mph take it to heart it will get there quicker than that. Heck, look at what the CS does and this has more hp.

Ya the front should just be the GT3 bumper.

Overall I like the retro look though. Guess its a good way for Porsche to get some extra dough-- and they need it.

Yes! Fuchs-style wheels! And that interior is beautiful. Hate the racing stripes though. And where are the Carrera RS side decals?

In January 2010 they'll release the Hermes Edition 997.

Announced yesterday:

"Volkswagen Group's Porsche division automobiles will be sold exclusively through our new Porsche Lifestyle Boutique dealerships.

Volkswagen Aktiengesellschaft and Dr.Ing. h.h. F. Porsche AG will employ a profitable model of speciality limited editions for the most discerning of connoisseurs."

LOVE the ducktail but the rest of that car is a little overdone.

There is a RUF 964 that shows up at Supercar Sunday that has a ducktail on it that looks just amazing.

I've never loved the duck tail, I appreciate it on the old RS...I don't know about this, it looks added on, not a cohesive design.

It looks just like my old silver Matchbox 911 that I had as a boy back in the 70's. That little toy car made me fall in love with 911's.

If ever there was a modern 911 worth collecting then this is it, so retro and so desireable. Love everything about it.

Looks sweet from the side but odd from the rear. You can tell that it is an homage to a classic design, which is pretty cool, but overall not sure I like it.
