Porsche has unveiled details of their 2023 911 Sport Classic, now planned to launch in the US market later this year.

This special model, based on the 911 Turbo S, will be limited to 1,250 units worldwide, being the second model borne of the Heritage Design strategy; as such, it features a bespoke design and a special powertrain.

The 911 Sport Classic is powered by the same 3.7-liter twin-turbo flat-six engine found in the 911 Turbo models; however, it features revised engine mapping to deliver output to the exclusively-available seven-speed manual transmission. Together, they send 543 horsepower and 442 lb-ft of torque to the rear wheels-- shrouded by the wide-body layout.

The most distinguishable exterior feature may be the ducktail spoiler, paying homage to the 911 Carrera RS 2.7 from the early 1970’s. Other noteworthy additions include special badging and “PORSCHE” lettering, the Sport Grey Metallic Paint, and the painted contrasting stripes. The 911 Sport Classic wheels are also exclusive to the car, measuring 20/21-inches, front/rear.

The standard interior uses semi-aniline leather in black and CLassic Cognac, the first time since the 918 Spyder that Porsche has used this particular supple and natural feeling grade of leather; single-tone black is also available. Various trim pieces are constructed of open-pore Paldao wood trim., and the heritage throwback-theme is carried by other small details, such as the retro-esque analog tachometer.

The 2023 Porsche 911 Sport Classic is said to reach dealers in late 2022, with pricing details to be announced closer to release.
