    The all-new 911 Sport Classic showcases several distinctive design elements like a wide-body stance (reserved for the 911 Turbo models), a fixed rear spoiler, and a double-bubble roof.

    It features the exclusive Sport Grey Metallic paintwork, which as per the automaker's Style Porsche Vice President Michale Mauer, “is never boring, quite often a statement and always cool." Also, the twin stripes on the bonnet, roof and rear spoiler give the car a sporty appearance.

    Not to forget, the side number graphics can be picked by the owner at will (any number between 1 to 99).

    Interior

    On the inside, the new 911 Sport Classic two-tone, semi-aniline Black/Classic Cognac leather upholstery offers an elegant contrast with the exterior tone. The door panels and seat centres, on the other hand, showcase the iconic Pepita houndstooth pattern. This pattern comprises small squares connected by diagonal stripes and was first seen as an official option on the 1965 Porsche 911.

    The 7-inch with two high-resolution displays instrument cluster is undoubtedly a modern inclusion but with several historic details like - a classic style needle in the analogue rev counter and the green display that pays tribute to the Porsche 356.

    Engine

    Powering the new 911 Sport Classic is a 3.7-litre twin-turbo flat-six engine generating maximum power of 550 PS. The drive is sent to the rear wheels via a seven-speed manual gearbox with an auto-blip function (which compensates for engine speed differences between the gears). In short, this one is the most powerful manual 911 around.

    The car offers an amazing emotive sound experience, thanks to the specially tailored standard sports exhaust system.

    Braking & handling

    Porsche 911 Sport Classic specs

    Assuring a smooth ride all along is the standard Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM) system, whose shock absorbers respond to the dynamic changes at lightning speed.

    The PASM is combined with sports suspension with a 10 mm lower ride height for added comfort. As mentioned, the 911 Sport Classic features rear-wheel drive (meaning axel load at the front is lower compared to all-wheel drive units), and the automaker has reduced the front axle spring rate slightly.
