The latest-generation Porsche 911 was launched in 2011. Codenamed 991, it replaced the 997 and gained an entirely new platform, only the third since the original 911 was introduced in 1963. Much like its predecessor, it has an evolutionary exterior design and a restyled interior with finer materials and sporty accents. Both the naturally aspirated 3.4-liter and the turbocharged 3.8-liter were upgraded for more power. In 2016, the entire lineup was updated to 991.2 specs. The facelift’s biggest changes is the new twin-turbo, 3.0-liter flat-six engines in the Carrera and Carrera S models. In short, the 991.2 marked the end of the naturally aspirated 911 outside the track-prepped GT3 model.
With the 2016 24 Hours of Le Mans right around the corner, Porsche has released the 911 Endurance Racing Edition. Based on the current Carrera S, it comes with extra features inside and out, a Sport Chrono package, and a special livery that pays tribute to the race-spec Porsche 919 Hybrid. Unveiled at the Circuit de la Sarthe before the big endurance race, the special-edition 911 pays homage to the company’s success on the race track and the record 17 victories at Le mans.
The sports car is available to order as we speak, but only in the United Kingdom and the Republic of Ireland. Pricing is a bit steep compared to the standard Carrera S, but Le Mans enthusiasts will probably be more than happy to pay the premium for a piece of Porsche history.
