Car makers love anniversaries, because it gives them good excuse to make special editions of the model they are celebrating and sell it to you for much more than they normally would. Now, this year one of the world’s most iconic cars, Porsche 911, is celebrating its 50th anniversary. Obviously, that calls for a special edition.
And so Porsche is going to release one. Good news is, Porsche has always been good at this. Their SE models are usually worth the extra cash you pay, and seeing as we’re talking about celebrating half a century here, it will definitely be something good.
Porsche 911 product director August Achleitner confirmed, in an interview with Motoring.com.au, that his company is indeed working on a Porsche 901 SE 50th Anniversary Edition, and announced 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show as the venue where it will be unveiled:
“There is something prepared, something special. You have to wait and see.” He also hinted at new variants of the 911 that will be released in near future: “When the market development drops and the sales drop or we come to the end of the lifecycle then it makes sense to bring other varieties. Here in my head there are many more variants than you have listed… We are not running out of ideas. It will not get boring in the next few years.”
