Porsche’s Project Gold Is Complete, It’s Air-Cooled And It’s For Sale!

Porsche’s meticulously hand-crafted Project Gold is finally ready for its close up. In an effort to celebrate the end of 993 production twenty years ago, as well as celebrate Porsche’s 70 year history as an automotive manufacturer, Porsche built possibly the nicest 993 Turbo S in the world. Interestingly Porsche makes mention of the car not being street legal, but it’s based on an original 1990s 993 body, and carries a brand new 993 Turbo S specification engine, so I can’t place why they would say its use is limited to race tracks. The car is set to make its world debut in the flesh at Porsche Rennsport Reunion in September, and then will be sold off to the highest bidder at RM Sotheby’s Porsche Anniversary sale at the Porsche Experience Center in Atlanta this October. All proceeds from the sale of Project Gold will be donated to the Ferry Porsche Foundation.

According to Porsche Classic, this car was built from all new pieces. Once the body shell was stripped clean, the workshops dug up all of the necessary pieces and got to work assembling them into a functioning piece of gold and black art. This just goes to show the level of commitment Porsche has to their heritage models, as they still offer all of the pieces you would need to re-assemble a 993 from essentially scratch.

Project Gold, as you can see in the video above, closely mimics the 2018 Porsche 911 Turbo S Exclusive series model, which was limited to 500 units worldwide and has been sold out for ages. I would bet that whoever ends up with the 993 version of that brand new car will have one of those in their collection as well. If you want it, you’ll have to bid high in October, as this is the only one in the world, and it doesn’t get any more Exclusiv Manufaktur than that.

“Project Gold” showcases the comprehensive skill of Porsche Classic in fascinating fashion”, says Detlev von Platen, Member of the Executive Board responsible for Sales and Marketing at Porsche AG. “This project clearly demonstrates our strategic approach. Although we are starting a new chapter in our sports car history with the Porsche Taycan, the story of how the company evolved is no less significant. On the contrary, this Golden Yellow 993 demonstrates how incredibly passionate we are about the tradition of our brand.”

Porsche Exclusive reveal special edition Turbo S

Porsche Exclusive, Zuffenhausen’s in-house workshop responsible for building one-off ‘special wishes’ 911s, has revealed it is to build a new 991.2 Turbo S, boasting 610hp and limited to just 500 units worldwide.

The most powerful 911 Turbo S of all time boasts a 27hp increase over the standard factory Turbo S, with maximum torque now up to 750Nm. This is the first limited-run car the special wishes department has produced for worldwide markets since the revered 997 Sport Classic of 2010.

As with any Exclusive-designed car, the Turbo S is most notable for its bespoke design, here boasting Golden Yellow Metallic paint with carbon fibre inserts on the front bonnet, roof, side skirts and side air intakes. Front and rear addenda from the Turbo Aerokit is standard equipment, though the rear PU is slightly tweaked for originality. There’s a new design for the black centre-lock wheels which are lazer traced with Golden Metallic accents. In a first for PCCBs, the mighty six-piston front and four-piston rear callipers are painted in a gloriously understated shade of black.

Inside you’ll find more Exclusive-centric touches including golden contrast stitching across the dashboard, seats and steering wheel, with twin gold stripes in the seat centres also finding their way through the middle of the 911’s famous centrally-mounted tacho. The car’s headrests are replete with ‘Turbo S’ stitching and there’s even a unique PDK gearlever.

As with the current 991.2 Turbo S rolling off the mainstream production line, the 991 also comes with PASM, PDCC, rear axle steering and Sport Chrono pack as standard equipment. For the first time however, customers will also be able to order a chronograph timepiece from Porsche Design “configured in the same design” as their new sports car purchase from Porsche Exclusive.

This special edition Exclusive Turbo S is available from £186,916, with the supporting chronograph an additional £8,700.
