Porsche releases limited edition 991 Club Coupe - +30 horsepower, only 12 units
Porsche is honoring the 60th Anniversary of the very first Porsche Club with a limited edition Porsche 991 Club Coupe. This a very limited edition with only 12 being made 1 of which will stay with Porsche. That means Porsche Club members will have a very hard time getting one of the remaining 11 and only have until July 16 to register for the chance to purchase, good luck with that. Each owner will have their name engraved on the door sill of the car which is a nice touch. What about pricing? 142,831 Euros meaning this likely will not be coming to the USA like the previous Club Coupe.
What intrigues us more than this collectors piece of a car (as who else will spend that much for a souped up 991 Carrera S?) are the modifications to the motor. Porsche gave it revised cylinder heads, camshafts, and tuning. In addition the intake manifold and exhaust were modified. Is this a preview of the Carrera S X51 power kit? We certainly think so as we doubt Porsche invested the money to simply make these modifications for a dozen cars. So, chances are people will have the option to replicate this at a much lower cost down the road.
