The one Millionth Porsche 911 is a beautiful ’60s throwback.
It’s a been over 50 years since the first Porsche 911 made its way out of the factory. To say it’s been popular would be an understatement, as the millionth 911 has just rolled off the assembly line, 54 years after the first one.
For a car that’s never been inexpensive, that’s an impressive production run, but then again, not many automakers keep the same model line alive for 10 years, let alone 54. Porsche AG believes that about 70 percent of all Porsche 911 ever built are still roadworthy today.
It shouldn’t come as a surprise that the one millionth 911 is not just some random Carrera. It’s a rear-wheel-drive 911 Carrera S, and it sports a flat-six engine that’s been upgraded to put out 450 horsepower. Just like the first 911, this one packs a manual transmission, although it’s picked up a few extra gears over the decades — this one is a seven-speed.
The car rocks the Irish Green paint job that Ferry Porsche (Professor Ferdinand Alexander Porsche) used back in the 1960s, and it’s still offered as a choice for buyers today. Professor Ferdinand Alexander Porsche was the creative brain behind one of the world’s most iconic sports cars and was the grandson of company founder Ferdinand Porsche.
This millionth car isn’t for sale – It will remain the property of Porsche AG. First, it’s going on a world tour, driving itself around the Nurburgring, the USA, China and everywhere in between. After that, it will head to its final resting place — the Porsche Museum.
