After all, the company is celebrating an anniversary of its own,; or at least an anniversary for one of its models.
Back in 1963, the world first laid eyes on the 911 . In the 50 years that it’s been in existence, the 911 has not only become a Porsche classic, but it’s also become a global icon, a stature only a handful of cars can claim to have reached.
So with the 911 celebrating its own golden jubilee, Porsche decided to unveil a special edition model for the occasion. It’s called the 911 Carrera S 50th Anniversary Edition, and as you can expect, it comes with plenty of design characteristics that differentiates itself from any other Porsche 911 today.
The car is expected to make its debut at the 2013 Frankfurt Auto Show later this year, but this early, the German automaker saw fit to give us an idea of what to expect.
