As you may recall, earlier this year Porsche released a special edition version of the 991 Carrera to mark their long history in endurance racing, specifically the 24 hours of Le Mans. Now a unique example of this model, officially called the Porsche 911 Carrera S Endurance Racing Edition, have been spotted in Guard Red.

This rare 991 edition in this rare color is something of a unicorn in the world of sports cars, but it’s not to everyone’s taste. For one thing, the Porsche 911 Carrera S Endurance Racing comes with exclusive graphics and huge letterings on its bonnet, stripes on the roof, and deck lid, and more graphics on the side sills. A Porsche purist may find these features orgasmically brilliant, but chances are a lot of people think they are kind of dorky and uncool.

 

But that aside, Porsche 911 Carrera S Endurance Racing Edition is a well-equipped, well-appointed 991 and one that will become a modern classic in the near future. The car is based on a Carrera S which has the following technical specs:

  • Engine: 3.0L horizontally opposed 6 and variable valve timing
  • Turbocharged
  • Gasoline direct fuel injection
  • Primary fuel type: premium unleaded
  • Performance: maximum speed (mph): 191 and acceleration 0-60 mph (secs): 4.1
  • Power (SAE): 420 hp @ 6,500 rpm; 368 ft lb of torque @ 1,700 rpm
  • Independent front strut suspension with stabilizer bar and coil springs, independent rear multi-link suspension with stabilizer bar and coil springs
  • Sport suspension
  • Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM) responsive suspensionfeatures driver selectable and electronic-control
  • Transmission: manual and floor shifter
