Like its immediate predecessor, the 997-based 911 Sport Classic presented in 2009, the appearance of this model is inspired by the original 911 (1964 – 1973)

At Porsche the Heritage Design models represent the most emotionally driven concepts of the Porsche product strategy,” says Alexander Fabig, Vice President Individualization and Classic.
“This unique approach sees the Style Porsche design department working with Porsche Exclusive Manufaktur to reinterpret iconic 911 models and equipment from the 1950s through to the 1980s and to revive design features from those decades.” Porsche is launching four limited-edition models over an extended period. The first of these was presented in 2020: the 911 Targa 4S Heritage Design Edition with design elements from the 1950s and 1960s.
The 911 997 based 911 Sport Classic was a huge success launched in 2009 limited to a production build of 250 units and after this, in 2014 the 911 991 Turbo S Exclusive GB Edition was a Porsche classic success but with a production build of 40 cars ever produced these cars are never seen in the flesh. These limited build numbers show the effort Porsche goes to in order to ensure these models are rare and very special to collectors.
Back in 2014 this Turbo S Exclusive GB Edition was revealed at the quintessentially British Goodwood Revival meeting and the Porsche classic workshop generated so much interest and the design studio allowed Porsche enthusiasts to see behind the scenes and in 2022 with the release of this classic 992 the car is set to make a huge impact.

Presented in 2020 was the 911 Targa 4S Heritage Design Edition with design elements from the 1950s and 1960s.
As with the first 997-generation 911 Sport Classic launched in 2009, the designers were inspired by the Fashion Grey paintwork of the early Porsche 356 when choosing the exclusive paint finish for the new limited-edition model. "The new 911 Sport Classic is the first vehicle to feature Sport Grey Metallic paintwork," says Michael Mauer, Vice President Style Porsche. "Grey is never boring, quite often a statement and always cool.” As an alternative to the exclusive Sport Grey Metallic finish, the new 911 Sport Classic is also available in solid Black, Agate Grey Metallic, Gentian Blue Metallic or Paint to Sample.3 Twin stripes painted on the bonnet, roof and rear spoiler in light Sports Grey emphasise the car’s sporty design.

Wild at heart.
550 PS, rear-wheel drive, manual transmission. This triad is sure to appeal to any Porsche fan. Because the unusual combination makes the 911 Sport Classic with a 3.7-litre bi-turbo boxer engine the current most powerful manual 911 model.
A very special aesthetic highlight is provided by the wide body in 911 Turbo look with clearly flared rear bodywork, but without the typical Turbo side air intakes. This unique appearance sets it apart from all other 911 models.
Classic. Yet modern.
Both the drive and the distinctive rear are guaranteed to cause a sensation. And rightly so. Because the spoiler is based on the original 'ducktail' of the 911 Carrera RS 2.7. Made from ultra-light carbon and painted light sport grey with double stripes, the result is an unmistakable look that sets the heart of any Porsche enthusiast racing.
