Costing (even deeper breath) £150,237, just 40 models will be built, making it a genuine limited edition that marks 40 years of the Porsche 911 Turbo.
The new 911 Turbo S Exclusive GB Edition is, as the name suggests, built by Porsche’s in-house Exclusive department established by Ferry Porsche in 1986. It tailors the car with a range of special features outside and in; so owners know both what’s been done and how Porsche Exclusive did it, the firm includes a personal photo book documenting the build process. Neat.
There’s even some “unique design sketches” thrown in too, and a special Exclusive GB Edition indoor car cover (which maybe suggests that Porsche expects many to be keepers, rather than daily drivers…).
Porsche 911 Turbo S Exclusive GB Edition: visual boost
Porsche offers the GB Edition in three colours: GT Silver, White or Guards Red, adding a retro 1974-style black rear upper spoiler, black Sport Classic wheels, black doorhandles and black ‘PORSCHE’ script on the lower sills.
It has black leather inside, with Guards Red stitching, SportDesign steering wheel with Guards Red centre marking and stitching, limited edition Union Jack in the carbon dash trim plus a rather snazzy Union Jack embossed into the centre storage box leather.
Also standard is privacy glass, Porsche crest on the head restraints, Guards Red seatbelts, personalised and illuminated carbon door sills, and bespoke floor mats with, again, Guards Red stitching.
There are no mechanical changes, though: the 560hp output remains the same as the regular 911 Turbo S, although Porsche includes the Sport Chrono Package Plus that cuts the 0-62mph time to just 3.1 seconds. It can do 197mph and, more relevantly, lap the Nurburgring Nordschleife in 7 min 27 secs.
Want one? Porsche dealers are taking orders from today. Given how previous strictly limited edition Porsche Exclusive variants have sold, you may wish to be quick – yes, despite that £150k price tag.
