2023 Porsche 911 Sport Classic

2023 Porsche 911 Sport Classic

Call off the dogs. We found our modern grail car. It’s the new Porsche 911 Sport Classic. What’s so great about it? Where do we begin? It’s based on the powerful 911 Turbo S, but it drops the all-wheel drive in favor of a dynamically more thrilling rear-wheel drive setup, deletion of the rear fender vents in favor of improved rear venting and a gorgeous ducktail spoiler, and a replacement of the PDK transmission for a brilliantly old-school 7-speed manual transmission. It also gets retro graphics, Fuchs-inspired wheels, and gold badging for some achingly good Porsche nostalgia. Don’t worry, there’s plenty of modernity here in the form of a 3.7L twin-turbo flat-six that churns out 543 hp and 442 lb-ft of torque, standard ceramic composite brakes with blacked-out calipers, Porsche Dynamic Chassis Control, Rear Axle Steering, a Sport Chrono Package, a mellifluous Sport Exhaust system, and Porsche Active Suspension Management. Only 1,250 units will be made at a yet undisclosed price. Expect it to be well north of the 911 Turbo S’s $208k sticker and worth every damn penny.
