We’ve unearthed South African pricing for the 911 Sport Classic, Porsche’s latest Heritage Design model. See pricing below…

Sport Classic

Billed as the most powerful manual 911 yet, the 911 Sport Classic is powered by a 3.7-litre, twin-turbocharged flat-six engine endowed with 405 kW and 600 Nm of torque. Power and torque are available from 6 750 r/min and 2 000 r/min, respectively. The German marque says these figures allow for a 0-100 km/h sprint time of 4.1 seconds and a top speed of 315 km/h. 

The petrol motor is coupled with a seven-speed manual gearbox. The transmission features an auto-blip function compensating for engine-speed differences between the gears.

The 911 Sport Classic also features a sports exhaust system that has been specifically tailored for it. The German marque says this set-up provides an even more emotional sound experience. 

Featuring a wide-body design, the limited-edition super sports car’s fixed rear spoiler is reminiscent of the ‘ducktail’ item on the Carrera RS 2.7. The double-bubble roof underscores the distinctiveness of the new 911 Sport Classic, Porsche says.

“Like its immediate predecessor, the 997-based 911 Sport Classic presented in 2009, the appearance of this model is inspired by the original 911 and the 1972 911 Carrera RS 2.7,” said the Stuttgart-based company.

The interior features Porsche’s Pepita pattern on the door panels and seat centres. Two-tone, semi-aniline leather trim (in Black/Classic Cognac) provides an “elegant” contrast with the exterior hue.

Limited to only 1 250 examples worldwide, the special-edition 911 that “revives” the style of the 1960s and early ‘70s is priced from R5 032 000. The latter figure includes a three-year/100 000 km maintenance plan. Opting for a five-year/100 000 km maintenance plan will set you back an additional R50 000.
