Porsche 911 reaches milestone 1,000,000

The one-millionth Porsche 911 has just rolled off the production line at Zuffenhausen.

Commissioned by Porsche itself, the one-off 911 Carrera S will be displayed at the Porsche Museum.  It features a host of special upgrades and design elements that allude to the original car, built in 1963.  These include leather seats in the pepita pattern, as featured in the first car, along with circular dashboard instruments finished with silver surrounds.

Complete with mahogany rim, the sports steering wheel features the 1964 Porsche crest, which is also displayed on the bonnet.  There’s a ‘1,000,000’ logo located in the instrument cluster and on the B-pillars, and the car is finished in ‘Irish Green’ – a nod to Ferdinand Porsche’s son Ferry, whose first 911 was green.

The engine has been tuned to deliver 445bhp and a top speed of 194mph, cutting the 0-62mph time to 4.1 seconds.

Before settling into its display at the Porsche Museum in Stuttgart, the milestone car will embark on a world tour, taking in the Nurburgring, the Scottish Highlands, the US and China.
