the no. 001/001 plate on the dashboard tells what this is: a completely unique Porsche 911. It has been built over the past two and a half years by the experts at Porsche Classic and Porsche Sonderwunsch on the basis of an old 911 Carrera from 1998. the client is the Porsche Club of America, the oldest Porsche club in the world. It explains why the name of this car is spelled 'wrong'. Porsche 911 Classic Club Coupe should actually have a dash on the e of the coupé, but not in America.
The old new 996 looks a bit like the Porsche 997 Sport Classic, with its Sport Gray Metallic paint, double-dome roof, Fuchs rims and ducktail spoiler. The blue of the exterior striping is reflected in the interior of the 911 Classic Club Coupe. The seats and door panels are covered with thin leather strips that are braided in a pattern. An infotainment system from Porsche Classic adorns the center console.
The most important changes have taken place under the skin. In the back of the simple 911 Carrera, the 300 hp 3.4-liter six-cylinder boxer engine has made way for a 3.6-liter GT3 block with 381 hp. The chassis and brakes also come from the 996.2 GT3 generation. Purists will be pleased to note that there is no PDK box in the 911 Classic Club Coupe, but a manual transmission.
Amazingly, Porsche didn't just restore and modify a neglected 996. The manufacturer has built a second example for speed tests in Weissach, Germany, Nardò, Italy and Idiada, Spain. Afterwards, the test car was destroyed so as not to affect the one-off status of the 911 Classic Club Coupe. It is not known what the American Porsche club will do with its unique 996 (sell, put it in a museum?).
