BMW isn't the only automaker releasing limited-edition models unique to the Chinese auto market. This week, Porsche took the wraps off the new 911 Turbo S Anniversary Edition to celebrate 10 years in China. Only 10 cars will be built and all of them are destined for the Chinese market.
The package is purely cosmetic with the 911 Turbo finished in a Gold Bronze color contrasted by a carbon fiber hood and rear spoiler plus a gorgeous set of 19-inch Fuchs-style alloy wheels from the 911 Sport Classic. Inside, Porsche upholstered the special edition 911 in Alcantara and leather with bronze-gold stitching, and added carbon trim plus a new Sports Design steering wheel.
The anniversary edition of the 911 Turbo S is powered by the standard model’s 3.8-liter turbocharged flat six that’s good for 530-horses at 6,750 rpm and 700Nm (516.3 lb-ft) of peak torque delivered from 2,100 rpm to 4,250 rpm, linked to Porsche’s PDK gearbox. It can accelerate from standstill to 100km/h (62mph) in 3.3 seconds and tops out at 315 km/h (196 mph).
