Porsche has unveiled the limited-edition 911 Sport Classic, a car that plunders the past of the iconic rear-engined sports car.
The Sport Classic, of which 250 will be built, gains a 'ducktail' spoiler made famous by the 1973 Carrera RS 2.7 and ‘Fuchs-style’ custom-made alloy wheels from the same era.
There is also a 'double bubble' roof that echoes both classic racing cars and the recent Carrera GT supercar.
A new front spoiler helps aerodynamic balance with the rear wing, and bi-xenon headlamps with black surrounds hark back to famous Porsche racing cars such as the 911 Turbo RSR from 1974.
The 3.8-litre engine in the Sport Classic has been boosted to 402bhp thanks to a new intake and engine management system, and modified cylinder heads.
There is also the new, variable-resonance intake system, featuring six vacuum-controlled flaps, which allows the engine to switch a more power-oriented and a more torque-oriented geometry.
Working on engine speed and the position of the throttle pedal, the flaps optimise the oscillation of air in the intake manifold for a better cylinder charge.
This ensures there is the perfect amount of air in the combustion chamber at all times to optimise torque, which peaks at 310lb ft from 4200-5600rpm.
The Sport Classic hits 62mph in a claimed 4.6sec and has a top speed of 187mph. The exhaust system has been developed specifically for this model and features high-gloss tailpipes.
