The iconic Porsche 911 turns 50 this year. As part of the anniversary celebration, the German sportscar maker has announced a limited edition model called the Porsche 911 50 Years Edition.
The original Porsche 911 (initially called as the 901) debuted at the Frankfurt Motor Show in 1963 and went on to etch a permanent place for itself in sportscar history.
Over the years, the car’s timeless silhouette has hardly changed. The 911 50 Years Edition will make its public debut at the very same Motor Show as its ancestor, the Frankfurt Motor Show on the 12th of September 2013.
The special edition car is based on the Porsche 911 Carrera S. The anniversary car will feature a wider body sitting on a rear wheel drive chassis. The car is 44mm wider than the standard 911 Carrera S across the wheel arches.
