Porsche builds the 1,000,000th 911

Fifty-four years after 911 production began, the 1,000,000th example has rolled out of Porsche's Zuffenhausen factory.

Porsche Exclusive, the brand's in-house bespoke modifications service, was heavily involved in specifying the milestone car.

Taking the current Carrera S as a starting point, it's painted in a shade called Irish Green that was first introduced in 1965. Five-spoke 20” wheels and aluminium window surrounds further add to the retro-modern look, while the door mirror caps, door handles and air intake slats are finished in Galvano Silver.

Inside, the leather-covered seats have 'pepita' pattern inserts in tribute to the first 911's upholstery. Another nod to the past is mahogany wood, which adorns the steering wheel and dashboard.

A performance package is also fitted. As this includes a sports exhaust, the Sport Chrono upgrade and larger turbochargers, output from the 3.0 litre engine is up from 414 bhp (309 kW / 420 PS) to 443 bhp (331 kW / 450 PS). In conjunction with a seven-speed manual transmission, the 0-62 mph (100 km/h) time and top speed are 4.1 seconds and 193 mph (312 km/h) respectively.

The one-off 1,000,000th 911 is destined to reside in the Porsche Museum in Stuttgart. A customer with enough inclination could doubtless configure a very close replica, though.
