In a year packed with iconic automotive anniversaries, we find yet another one coming out of Zuffenhausen, there have been so many that we’ve lost count. Ok, that’s an exaggeration, but you get the picture. We’ve shared a few special-edition Porsches released this year to commemorate the automaker’s 75th anniversary, then there was something to celebrate Porsche and the Goodwood Festival of Speed, and nit it’s an inception-style anniversary. The limited-number Porsche you see here has been called the 911 S/T, and its creation was to celebrate the actual 911 nameplate within the Porsche brand as it turns 60 years old this year. To help aficionados more easily remember the year that the world was introduced to the 911, that of 1963, just 1 963 examples will be made. While you can see aesthetics have little bits done here and there to distinguish the car from a ‘regular’ 2023 911 example, and those changes do look very, very good indeed, it’s the whole philosophy behind the 911 S/T. A lightweight design to afford the best in purist driving experiences. This means the car is a lot more special than it looks because under that rear hatch sits the powertrain from the iconic 911 GT3 RS. Not only did the Porsche engineers fit in what is arguably the best normally-aspirated motor in existence today, they mated it to a manual transmission. That’s absolutely amazing, and over and above the limited number of the 911 S/T cars making them desirable by collectors, the plain fact that it features the powertrain that it does means it’s a desirable car for any red-blooded automotive fanatic.
Take a look at the YouTube video showing off yet another new limited edition Porsche created to celebrate a milestone anniversary, which in this specific case is an anniversary within an anniversary. Some special editions have celebrated the automaker's 75th anniversary, while in that 75 years, the 911 nameplate was created, and that turns 60 this year making the new 911 S/T a double-whammy celebration that's sure to be one of those models that appreciates in value just a little more than the rest.: The new 911 S/T: 60 years of the Porsche 911 | Porsche
