Porsche Creates One-Of-One 911 Classic Club Coupe Out Of A 1998 Type 996

Porsche and the Porsche Club of America have revealed a one-of-a-kind vehicle that combines new and old technology and features a deep resemblance to the 911 Sport Classic. Through the Sonderwunsch program, Porsche has restored a run-down 911 Carrera 996 for two and a half years to create a 911 Classic Club Coupe. 

The German manufacturer utilized the chassis, brakes, and engine from a 996.2 911 GT3 with a naturally aspirated engine that delivers 381hp – fully compliant with all US regulations. 

The car is finished in Sport Grey Metallic – inspired by the colorway of the 911 Sport Classic Type 997 – accented by stripes in a lighter shade of the aforementioned color and accents in Club Blue. Influenced by the 1972 911 Carrera RS 2.7, it has twin stripes running across the hand-built ducktail spoiler. It has a double-bubble roof and sits on 18-inch forged aluminum Fuchs wheels. 

Its interiors sport an Alcantara headliner and black leather seats with Slate Gray trim accents. The seats highlight a twill “Pepita” pattern, while the steering wheel and headrests are covered with Club Blue stitching. The vehicle is accessible for both Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and Sirius XM with the integration of a Porsche Classic Communication Management Plus infotainment system with an automated “Classic Club Coupe” display on startup.

Porsche has showcased the car in The 2022 Amelia Concours d’Elegance.
