It was forty years ago this year that Porsche introduced a prototype of the first 911 Turbo at the Paris Motor Show and the rest is pure automotive history you might say because its status as an icon of performance motoring is now well and truly established.

Back then the show crowds went all light-headed and swooned at the idea of driving a sports car producing 260 hp and here we are today nodding our heads that the latest model is capable of producing 560 hp but then so many other cars available these days can produce the same or even more horses to play with. How times have changed.

The 911 Turbo has a place on our hearts however because it is still the poster-boy of the 70’s that we remember with fondness and every subsequent model since has paid homage to the granddaddy of them all.

It is quite fitting therefore that Porsche should launch a special edition of the 911 Turbo to celebrate its 40th birthday and it is to be known as the ‘911 Turbo S Exclusive GB Edition’ and only 40 (clever eh!) examples will be built to mark the occasion.

Why ‘Exclusive GB Edition’ you ask? Well because you can only buy one in good old Blighty so we are very fortunate indeed and it has more Union Jacks than Windsor Castle!

So what makes the car stand out from the regular Turbo S? Well in addition to the standard spec of the S here are the highlights of the special exclusive features:-

•  Three exterior colours (GT Silver Metallic, White and Guards Red)
•  Contrasting exterior features in Black (high-gloss): 20-inch Sport Classic wheel, rear spoiler, SportDesign wing mirror, exterior door handle
•  Side logo ‘PORSCHE’ in Black
•  Storage compartment lid with embossed Union Jack
•  SportDesign steering wheel with 12-o’clock-marking in Guards Red and rim with Guards Red stitching
•  Carbon dashboard trim with chrome logo “911 Turbo S – Exclusive GB Edition”
•  Personalised door sill guards in Carbon, illuminated, with writing “911 Turbo S – Exclusive GB Edition”
•  High level of standard equipment
•  Complementary accessories including a personalised Indoor Car Cover, a personalised photo book and key pouch in leather with decorative stitching in Guards Red

Here are a couple of handy graphics to illustrate some of the above:-

And here are some snaps of the funky ‘exclusive’ interior bits:-

Can you buy one right now? Absolutely! Having had its public debut at Goodwood on the 15th September the car is being snapped up at Porsche dealers all over the UK but because of the limited production run there will not be much time to secure a car to buy today.

However, happily we do have a car that is available to purchase right now in GT Silver and fitted with the Burmester High End Surround Sound System (worth over £2k) and can be yours for £163798 including VAT.

Interested? Please get in touch in the first instance on 01892 506970 because we are not expecting the car to be available for very long or drop The Car Spy an email at sales@thecarspy.net.
