The German carmaker is celebrating 50 years since the first 911 was built and is doing so with a special edition, called 911 50th Anniversary Edition, which will be produced in a limited run of just 1,963 units. 1963 is the year Porsche unveiled the first 911 generation, initially called type 901. The special 911 50th Anniversary Edition pays tribute to that model and we will be able to see it for the first time at the Frankfurt Motor Show this fall.

The special edition is powered by the six-cylinder boxer engine that produces 400-hp and is currently being used by the Carrera S. The anniversary 911 features list includes an upgraded version of the Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM), 20-inch wheels with a design similar to the famous Fuchs wheels that were used in 1963, modified exhaust whose sound resembles the one of the original model, Porsche Dynamic Light System (PDLS) and bi-xenon headlights.

The 1,963 units will be available in two unique colors: Graphite dark grey and Geyser light grey. However, Porsche announced that black will also be available. Each unit features a two-color 3D “911 50” badge on the rear, on the instrument cluster and on the headrests. The instruments features white indicators on a green background, plus some silver elements, just like the original 911. Another feature is the special leather upholstery that resembles the classic Pepita upholstery used on the model launched 50 years ago.
