Porsche 911 50th Anniversary Plans DetailedFriday, February 8, 2013 7:46 by Arman Barari
This year the iconic Porsche 911 turns 50, which is obviously something that needs to be celebrated good. Porsche just announced a wide variety of anniversary events, which include a special display of all models at Porsche Museum, a special book, and a magnificent world tour.
It will all begin with the ‘Retro Classics’ automobile show in Stuttgart. Four legendary models, including an early-model 911 Turbo Coupé, a 911 Cabriolet study from 1981, a 1997 road-going ‘street’ version 911 GT1 and the pre-series Type 754 T7 – which is the core of the first ever 911, designed by Ferdinand Alexander Porsche – will on display at the museum.
Then begins the year-long world tour with the 1967 model 911. It will be attending rallies, motorsport events, and international fairs, traveling to five continents where it will be shown in places like Pebble Beach, California, China, Goodwood in the UK, Paris and Australia. You can follow this epic journey at Porsche.com/follow-911.
Porsche will wrap up the celebrations with the ‘50 years of the Porsche 911’ exhibition from 4 June – 29 September 2013, and publishing the “911×911″ anniversary book.
