One of the Most Legendary Porsche Editions ever. From what will become the most desirable of 911 series, the 997, this is the 911 Sport Classic.
Launched as a Limited Edition from the “Porsche Exclusive” Division, this became a feature for what was possible by them. From double-bubble roofline, unique colour and stripes, unique interior, duck spoiler and original style Fuchs wheels, all wrapped in a promise of just 250 available to the world.
Ironically, when it was first released it wasn’t the fastest seller, with a few lingering at dealerships for many months. Remember this was pre-bandwagon Porsche days… Today, there are replicas, the colour is copied on many 991 versions and the price is now around two and half times the original £141,000 UK cost.
All 997 Sport Classic’ was painted in the Exclusive colour ‘Sport Classic Grey‘. And all featured the Expresso Nature Brown finished Leather Interior, although finished in a unique design. The specialist features of this edition, which the Exclusive team at Porsche have kept unique to this edition, is the double-bubble roof and the duck spoiler.
Now it depends who you speak to but there’s never been a figure of how many sold in the UK. The general truth seems to be Porsche has never really said… However, I’ve tracked around 27 UK cars, which is the prefered amount that is stated were sold. There are a couple of RHD imports which need sorting… I want to check the VIN numbers to get a near exact figure. But I’m missing some dashboard edition numbers, if you know of any, please let me know to get the data correct
