unlike Lamborghini who marked its 50th years in the business with an exceedingly exotic concept, Porsche chose to celebrate the 50 years of its iconic model 911 with a more earthly ride – the Porsche 911 50th Anniversary Edition. expect no overly exotic materials or extreme styling on this world’s most recognizable ride, instead you will find, in the rightful place (which is in its trunk, naturally), a 3.8-liter boxer engine as found on the Carrera S with Powerkit package upgrade, giving you 430 horses of pure rear wheel drive fun. performance speaks, this wide-bodied coupe gets from zero to 60 mph in just 4.2 seconds when paired with a seven-speed manual transmission, or 3.8 with the optional dual-clutch PDK.

in Stateside, for $124,100, you will have the opportunity to vie for one of the 1963 units available, featuring a choice of two special paint jobs: graphite grey or geyser grey, a set of special 20-inch wheels that pays tribute to the legendary “Fuchs” wheels, special badging at the rear and on the door sills (a badge that says “911 50”), and an interior that takes on the visual cues of the original 911 which was first introduced at the Frankfurt Motor Show 50 years ago. speaking of which, it is no coincidence that Porsche will be debuting this drool-worthy ride at the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show aka International Automobile Exhibition aka Internationale Automobil-Ausstellung (IAA), happening on the September 12-22, 2013. yeah. it is still quite a while before that happens, so why not visually excite yourself with a gallery below?
