In June 2013, five decades after Porsche unveiled its signature sports car, the storied manufacturer announced a special version celebrating the 911, distilling the best features from all six generations. This 991.1 edition was the last to feature naturally aspirated engines, marking a turning point in the 911’s evolution. Approximately 600 examples of the 50th Anniversary Edition were destined for the American market, and every US-spec version featured the Powerkit as standard, with ported cylinder heads and a modified ECU, intake, and camshaft. These features boosted performance to 430 hp and gave the model a reported top speed of 186 mph.
This 911 50th Anniversary Edition was finished at the Porsche Exclusive facility in Stuttgart in 2013 and was no. 704 of 1,963 produced. A two-tone rear badge reading “911 50,” unique horizontal rear fascia, and wide-body fenders separate the Anniversary Edition from the standard Carrera S. It was customized with a rare black leather interior and nearly every factory option available, including heated seats, fire extinguisher, front and rear ParkAssist sensors, and all-aluminum gas cap, accelerator pedal, and footrest.
Complete with books, tools, the original window sticker, and both sets of keys with anniversary houndstooth keychains, this is an uncommon example of Porsche’s ultimate, factory-built tribute car.
