To commemorate a 6-decade automotive legacy, the 2024 Porsche 911 S/T, a Sixtieth-anniversary particular version of the basic sports activities coupe, will make its U.S. debut throughout Rennsport Reunion 7 at Laguna Seca on Sept. 28 by means of Oct. 1, 2023. Porsche will produce simply 1,963 examples of this restricted version to mark the milestone.
The automaker guarantees the S/T would be the lightest 911 of the 992 era and the purest expression of the sportscar. Weissach engineers paired the 518-horsepower flat-6 engine from the 911 GT3 RS and a 6-speed handbook transmission with a light-weight clutch and a shortened gear ratio to perform these ends. The engine can rev as much as 9,000 rpm and thrust the S/T to a 3.5-second zero-to-60 time and a prime pace of 186 mph. The slimmed-down building lowers the automotive to three,056 kilos, shedding 70 kilos from the 911 GT3 Touring, the opposite half of its design pedigree.
Talking of Touring, the 911 S/T’s forged-magnesium 20- and 21-inch staggered wheels are destined for winding roads as a substitute of hairpin turns just like the track-focused GT3, regardless of all its energy and drivability.
In one other nod to Porsche’s historical past, consumers can order the elective “Heritage Design Package deal — 60 Years of the 911,” a radical inside and exterior re-design that provides the 911 S/T a classic ’60s racecar look, full with numbered door panels.
The 2024 Porsche 911 S/T will begin at $290,000, not together with the $1,650 vacation spot cost, the $20,360 Heritage Design Package deal, or no matter else you select from Porsche’s near-limitless choices menu.
