Porsche has officially built its 1,000,000th example of its most iconic sports car ever – the 911. Modeled after one of the first 911s ever built and Ferdinand “Ferry” Porsche’s personal company car, the Irish Green Carrera S uses many parts from Porsche’s Exclusive options portfolio as well as custom parts designed to bring it as close to the original as possible. After a global tour and drives in the United States, at the Nürburgring, and elsewhere, it will take up permanent residence at the Porsche Museum in Stuttgart.
The interior features leather seats with inserts finished in the original 1964 houndstooth pattern. The gauge pod gets “1,000,000 911” lettering as well as silver instrument trim that resembles the first 911. The steering wheel has the 1960s version of the Porsche crest on its hub—the same crest is fitted to the frunklid—and mahogany trim, which is a nod to the wooden-rim wheels that characterized sports cars of the period.
There are also “1,000,000” badges on the B-pillar and passenger-side dashboard. As on the original 911, this car sports plenty of silver trim on its exterior, including the door handles, the window surrounds, and the slats for the vent on the engine cover. Twenty-inch wheels honor the iconic Fuchs wheels that characterized 911s for decades. Finally, the engine is the uprated Powerkit version of the S’s twin-turbocharged flat-six, which makes 450 horsepower and is paired with a seven-speed manual transmission.
