Special editions are usually a noble way of ripping off customers. They offer you a normal car fitted with a few extra goodies and ask a lot more money for it than what actually costs to put those goodies on the car yourself. And people buy them, because they are exclusive, and have better residual value.

In the case of the of Porsche 911 50th Anniversary Edition, though, there is more to the car than a paint job and set of wheels. This car marks a very important occasion for the 911, so every little detail has a story behind it, as design manager Tony Hatter explains in the video below:

Porsche 911 50th anniversary edition design highlights in brief:

Two unique colours are available for this anniversary 911; a darker Graphite Grey and a lighter Geyser Grey metallic. Black is also available. Each of the cars has a ‘911 50’ badge finished in two-tone 3D-style on the rear lid, which is repeated in three-colour embroidery on the head restraints and as a two-colour logo on the rev counter and the aluminium door sill plates. It is also displayed on the passenger side fascia strip together with the limited edition number of the individual vehicle. Other exterior characteristics of the special model are high-gloss window frames and SportDesign exterior mirrors. A technical highlight is the Porsche Dynamic Light System (PDLS), which adds a dynamic cornering function to the already standard-fit Bi-Xenon headlights.
