the Sport Classic Grey model start at the nose with a revised fascia and take off from there. Up top, the roof panel receives a double-bubble treatment: a pair of domes above the driver and passenger with a channel down the middle. At the rear, the ducktail spoiler from the legendary the Carrera RS 2.7 makes its first appearance on a modern 911 and is flanked by even wider rear fenders to enclose the SC's extended track.

Porsche has seen fit to include some mechanical goodness as well. Under that charismatic ducktail, a new intake manifold with flaps that control the runner lengths adds 23 horsepower to the normally aspirated flat-six, bringing the headcount to 403. Carbon ceramic brakes are enclosed in special Fuchs-style 19-inch wheels designed that evoke the last 911SC of the late Seventies and early Eighties, and the whole package lurks closer to the ground thanks to the inclusion of PASM sport suspension.

The interior hasn't been ignored either, with various bits being finished in Espresso Nature natural leather and the use of new materials to the marque, including woven leather/yarn seat panels.

Of course, also following firmly in company tradition is the Sport Classic's premium price. Just 250 examples will be built and we don't imagine Porsche will have any trouble clearing its decks – even though it is priced at a tidy €169,300 ($240,702 USD)

duck tail ftw. not so sure about the squared-off center channel of the double bubble roof ( and I love double bubble roofs).

not feeling it, seems as though it can't decide whether it is retro ( spoiler, and Fuchs wheels) or modern, (led taillights, overall look) Porsche needs to spend a bit more time refining this one.

WOW!!!! LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the return of the ducktail spoiler. :thumbup:

First pic kinda looks like a Caymen, though cuz the rear now tapers into the middle, unlike the 911s of old that ran more straight to the rear of the car. Not big on the double grey stripes... LOVE the return of the Fuchs and to make it perfect, it needs 'Carerra' painted in blue on the rockers.

But best thing I've seen from Porsche in a long, long time. :thumbup:
