Porsche dropped the latest version of its legendary 911 this week, the 911 GTS Club Coupe — a limited edition auto from the German manufacturer’s North American division sure to capture the entire club’s attention.
Porsche built the 21st iteration of the 911 to celebrate the 60th anniversary of the Porsche Club of America with a limited production of just 60 units — 59 for the general public and one exclusive to club members.
“The Porsche Club of America is home to passionate ambassadors who have been fostering the appreciation and recognition of Porsche for 60 years,” Porsche Cars North America marketing vice president Andre Oosthuizen said during the unveiling at the division’s headquarters in Atlanta. “We are proud and honored to celebrate this anniversary with a very special edition of Porsche’s most storied sports car — the 911.”
In an exclusive “Club Blau” color, the Club Coupe comes equipped with the Carrera GTS’ 430-horsepower, 3.8-liter naturally aspirated flat-6 engine, a 44-millimeter wider, 10-millimeter lower SportDesign package body and 20-inch Sport Classic wheels.
With a 3.8-second 0-60 m.p.h. launch time and a top speed of 190 m.p.h., the Club Coupe will be just as at home on the track as with the club valet — at least for the lucky 60 with $136,060 to drop when the cars go on sale stateside in June.
