Porsche Produces 1-millionth 911
After 54 years of legend building, the 1-millionth Porsche 911 has rolled off the production line in Zuffenhausen, Germany. This Carrara S Coupe boasts distinctive details courtesy of Porsche Exclusive. Sharing the same Irish Green exterior and sporting upholstery that includes the original “Pepita design” inserts that appeared on one of the first 911 models owned by Ferry Porsche, this unique 911 also has a “1,000,000” logo on its B-pillar and dash along with a handmade mahogany-rimmed steering wheel and heritage silver surrounds on its instruments.
Now in its 7th generation, the rear-engine 911 remains the spiritual heart of the Porsche lineup and continues to anchor the firm’s reputation. Porsche proudly points out that the 911 has accounted for over half of its 30,000-plus race wins and it consistently ranks at or near the top of vehicle quality rankings. Wolfgang Porsche, chairman of the Porsche AG supervisory board and son of Ferry, was on hand to help celebrate the millionth 911. He observed: "54 years ago, I was able to take my first trips over the Grossglockner High Alpine Road with my father. The feeling of being in a 911 is just as enjoyable now as it was then. That's because the 911 has ensured that the core values of our brand are as visionary today as they were in the first Porsche 356/1 from 1948."
In case you’re wondering, the 1-millionth 911 is not for sale. Prior to joining other iconic siblings in the Porsche Museum, the car will head out on a world tour that will is set to include a road trip in the Scottish Highlands and a lap of the around the Nürburgring as well as other driving forays to the U.S., China and other 911 markets.
