After 54 years, Porsche has announced that the one-millionth 911 has rolled off the production line. The one-millionth 911 produced is an Irish Green Carrera S with numerous exclusive features that are inspired by the original 1963 911.
“54 years ago, I was able to take my first trips over the Grossglockner High Alpine Road with my father. The feeling of being in a 911 is just as enjoyable now as it was then. That’s because the 911 has ensured that the core values of our brand are as visionary today as they were in the first Porsche 356/1 from 1948,” Dr. Wolfgang Porsche, Chairman of the Supervisory Board of Porsche AG stated.
Porsche has never strayed from the founding concept of the original 911. “But we have continued to enhance the technology of the 911, refining and perfecting the sports car,” says Oliver Blume, Chairman of the Executive Board of Porsche AG, “that’s why it remains a state-of-the-art and technically innovative vehicle. We have also been able to expand the model line very successfully through derivatives.”
Sadly the one-millionth 911 will not be sold. Before it becomes part of the collection at the Porsche Museum, it will embark on a world tour and will take road trips in the Scottish Highlands, around the Nürburgring, and in other countries, like the US and China.
