Porsche has announced the new 911 Club Coupe that celebrates the 60th anniversary of the first two Porsche clubs. The first Porsche club was founded in 1952, four years after the first Porsche was built. A group of seven Porsche drivers founded the Westfälischer Porsche Club Hohensyburg, now known as the Porsche Club Westfalen e. V., on 26 May 1952. That same year saw the formation of a second Porsche Club with six members initially – the Porsche Club Berlin e. V.
Today there are now 640 official Porsche clubs in 75 countries with a total of 181,000 members. Porsche has created the 911 Club Coupe, which pays tribute to the 13 founding Porsche Club members. The 911 Club Coupe is based on the 911 Carrera S, which packs 430 horsepower, 30 more than the Carrera S. Thanks to the extra power, the 911 Clube Coupe reaches 0-62 mph in 4.0 seconds.
On the outside, the 911 Club Coupe is painted in Brewster Green and rides on 20-inch wheels. The Sport Design package adds a reworked front bumper and a rear mounted spoiler. The interior is done up in an Espresso leather and a dash mounted strip is engraved with the Club Coupe logo.
Only 12 club members will be able to actually buy the 911 Club Coupe through a lottery. Porsche has listed it at $175,580.
