To mark 60 years of Porsche Clubs, the automaker is launching a specail exhibition and a special edition 911.
The Dr. Ing. h.c. F. Porsche AG, Stuttgart, museum is presenting the new anniversary exhibition.
In 1952, 13 Porsche drivers founded the world’s first Porsche Clubs in Germany. The Porsche Club scene now numbers more than 181,000 members worldwide. To mark this 60th club anniversary, the Porsche Museum is putting on a special exhibition until August 26, 2012 featuring, in addition to 12 vehicle exhibits, rare photographs, personal documents and small exhibits from club members.
Porsche is using the anniversary as an opportunity to thank club members for their loyalty over the decades with a special model.
Limited to just 13 units worldwide, the 911 Club Coupe is available exclusively to Porsche Club members and will make its debut in the Porsche Museum.
With a newly developed Powerkit upgrade to 430 hp, a SportDesign exterior package and a refined interior, Porsche Excusive has created an extensively individualized car.
The 911 Club Coupe is painted “Brewster Green,” as are the 20-inch SportTechno wheels, while its exclusivity is underlined by trim bearing the customer’s name and illuminated door entry guards bearing the model designation and anniversary logo.
One vehicle will remain with Porsche in honour of the Porsche Club universe. Porsche Club members have until July 16, 2012 to register their right to purchase one of the 12 remaining unique vehicles at www.porsche.com/911-club-coupe. The 12 winners will then be determined by a legally certified draw.
The 911 Club Coupe will be offered in all markets worldwide with the exception of China and India.
In Canada, the vehicle’s MSRP is $200,400.
Also shown in the Porsche Museum for the first time as part of the “60 years of the Porsche Club” special exhibition will be the 911 T Coupe. Last year, Porsche Classic experts were commissioned by the Porsche Club of America to restore a 1973 vintage US version of this model. This unique vehicle was raffled among American club members.
