We doubt that most people in the world are aware of Porsche’s 911 customization brand. It’s called Porsche Exclusive and basically, they take normal 911 models and custom tailor them to your exact needs. From interior detailing to the exterior bits, as well as performance enhancements, Porsche Exclusive can create a personalized 911 just for you.

A team of about 100 specialists at Porsche Exclusive takes care of everything from development to sales. Buyers can delve through a Porsche Exclusive catalog at each dealer. The customer discusses these personalized options directly with the dealership or, if they happen to be in Germany, the Exclusive customer advisers at the factories in Zuffenhausen or Leipzig.

Now you might imagine that such a unique customization brand is quite new, but actually, they’ve just celebrated their 25th anniversary. In addition to the champagne and cake, Porsche will be celebrating with a strictly limited edition of a new 911 Speedster. Only 356 of these models - that Porsche calls, "puristic, open-topped two-seater with low windscreen and double bubble on the convertible-top compartment lid" - will be made, so jump on it before they’re gone.

The 911 is just the first of the celebratory products being offered by Porsche, so if a sports car isn’t in the budget, maybe a book will work. The Porsche Exclusive book will be available in the Porsche Museum shop from March 2011. The museum will also be displaying a special exhibit that will run from March to May 2011.

In 2009 Porsche Exclusive added a further gem to its portfolio in the form of the 911 Sport Classic. Limited to 250 vehicles, this was a 911 which perfectly combined tradition and modernity. Designed with Porsche’s discerning customers in mind, the Porsche 911 Sport Classic with fixed rear wing in the "ducktail" shape first exhibited by 1973’s legendary Carrera RS 2.7 was a quite special highlight.
25 years of success are a good reason to celebrate. Porsche Exclusive will be doing this in a manner which reflects the high standards of the company within the company: with a strictly limited edition of a new 911 Speedster. In homage to the first Porsche model that bore the name Speedster – the 356 Speedster – the production run for the new model is limited to 356 cars. In the best tradition as a puristic, open-topped two-seater with low windscreen and double bubble on the convertible-top compartment lid.
With the 911 Speedster Porsche Exclusive will herald in a year chock-a-block with activities. With a new book on the Porsche Exclusive history, which will be available in the Porsche Museum shop from March 2011, a special Museum exhibition to run from March to May 2011 or a special Porsche Travel Club trip in June, for instance. Amongst other venues, Porsche Exclusive can be experienced live at the vintage vehicle grand prix at the Nürburgring in August 2011.
