The Heritage Design series continues to be developed at Porsche. The German sports car manufacturer pays homage to its old glories, by offering its current models special series inspired by the cars that have marked its history. The latest addition to this collection is the Porsche 911 Sport Classic, a collector’s edition that will be produced in a limited edition. It follows on from the 911 Targa 4S Heritage Design Edition.

This 911 type 992 Sport Classic is directly inspired by the original 911, marketed from 1964 to 1973. The designers of the Stuttgart firm also wanted to refer to the 911 Carrera RS 2.7 from 1972. In terms of design, this materializes by a widened body borrowed from the Turbo model, here declined in a metallic Sport Gray color inspired by the Fashion Gray color of the Porsche 356. The car is also available with a Black, Metallic Gentian Blue, Metallic Quartz Gray or even with the Paint to Sample option, which expands the choice of colors.
