The new Porsche 911 Classic Club Coupe has released one-off

Porsche has pulled the covers of a uniquely restored version of its 996 generation 911. Known as the 911 Classic Club Coupe, it is the latest special project in Porsche Classic’s recently expanded Sundrounch program in Germany.

Commissioned by the Porsche Club of America, the classic club coupe is based on the 1998 911 Carrera, which was found neglected and in poor condition at a dealer forecourt in Virginia, USA. Bringing back the Porsche Classic workshop in Stuttgart, Germany, it has received a massive recovery in two and a half years.

The 911 Classic Club Coupe 2009 shares a lot of exterior design signals with the 911 Sport Classic, which in turn pays homage to the famous 1973 911 Carrera RS 2.7. Black 18-inch Fuchs fake rims and a docktail fixed rear spoiler are the most obvious new additions, such as the Sport Gray metallic paintwork that combines two stripes from bonnet to spoiler. ‘Club Blue’ also has a lot of details – the Porsche is the signature color of Club America.

Beneath the wind tunnel-tuned spoiler is a second-generation 911 GT3 engine that pumps 376bhp – 76bhp more when new carriers are delivered than the standard provided. The GT3 Motivation doesn’t stop with the engine, as the transmission, chassis and brakes also come from track-focused specials. Performance details have not been released, but a 0-62mph time of about 4.5 seconds and maximum speeds above 180mph are expected.

Inside, the black leather seats and door cards are contrasted by inserting houndstoot fabric. Club Blue stitching has been added to the standard three-spoke steering wheel, while the instrument cluster has the ‘911 Classic Club Coupe’ logo and racing stripe. To emphasize the unique condition of the car, there is a plaque on the dashboard, “911 Classic Club Coupe No. 001/001”.

The interior is modernized with the addition of a seven-inch touchscreen and a Porsche Classic Communication Management Plus infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.

A prototype version of the 911 Classic Club Coupe was tested on numerous proven grounds, including Nardo in Italy, Idiada in Spain, and Weissach in Germany, to ensure that the finished car remained one-on-one before breaking down.

The 996-Generation 911 is one of the most popular versions of the firm’s famous rear-engine machine, with a total of 175,262 examples made between 1997 and 2006.
