1,000,000 Porsche 911 produced

May 11, 2017

One in a million: Porsche reveals its millionth 911 and claims more than 70% of all cars built over 54 years are still on the road today

• Porsche has been making the 911 sports car for 54 years – in which time it has won racing and celebrity fame
• That means it has built 50 cars on average a day to reach 1,000,000 in total this week
• Insiders claim that 70% of all built are still ‘ready to drive today’ and the 911 has won more than 15,000 races
• The car replicates the first 911, with matching Irish Green paint, gold emblems and a wood-panel interior

This is Porsche 911 number 1,000,000.
That’s right, the German sports car manufacturer has built one million 911s since the first one rolled off the production line some 54 years ago – which equates to 50 models being assembled a day on average.
In that time it has achieved legendary racing status, become a status symbol for the world’s wealthy, and won celebrity fans, including racing actors Steve McQueen

To celebrate the landmark achievement, the Carrera S that rolled off the assembly line today is designed to replicate the first 911 that emerged in 1963 and even shares the same ‘Irish Green’ paint scheme.
To complement the classy green coat, all the trim and badges are finished in gold and the mirror covers are in contrasting matt silver.
Inside, the old school theme continues with a wood-clad steering wheel and dashboard insets – something you’d expect to see adorning the interior of an 1980s Mercedes taxi, not a 2017 high-performance sports car.
Even the seats feature a hatched cloth finish, replicating the look of the original.

Commemorative 1,000,000 badges are dotted around the car, including taking pride of place in the digital instrument panel, just in case a driver fails to acknowledge they’re about to drive a milestone in the 911’s impressive history. 
Under the rear engine cover is a standard Carrera S motor – that means a 3.0-litre twin-turbo flat six packing 414bhp – good enough for a 0-to-62mph sprint in 4.3 seconds and a top speed nudging beyond 190mph.  
It’s a far cry from the performance stats of the original, which was fitted with a 2.0-litre engine developing 130bhp and a top speed of 131mph.
And to keep with tradition, there’s no PDK automatic gearbox in sight on number 1,000,000 – instead, the car features a manual ‘box, as purists would demand. 

Today’s 911s are awash with carbon fibre, but number 1,000,000 has smatterings of wood evoking memories of cars gone by

The Irish Green paint is contrasted with flat silver mirrors and gold details throughout – lending the car an elegant look

All Porsche 911 purists will be happy to know it comes with a manual gearbox rather than the PDK auto

With every single 911 being created in Zuffenhausen over the last 54 years, it marks a significant achievement for the German car brand.
Porsche insiders said all cars built over that period were recognised for their robustness, claiming that 70 per cent of them are still ‘ready to drive today’.
Its racing prowess has been equally as impressive, with Porsche claiming that over half of the 30,000 race wins credited to the brand have been achieved by the iconic model

All 911s ever made over 54 years have been produced at the Zuffenhausen facility in the northern region of Stuttgart

Factory employees were snapped celebrating the assembly of the landmark one-millionth Porsche 911

The one-millionth 911 will now embark on a world tour that includes a trip to the Scottish Highlands and the Nürburgring

Dr Wolfgang Porsche, chairman of the supervisory board at Porsche AG, who has been a part of the development of the 911 since day one, said: ’54 years ago, I was able to take my first trips over the Grossglockner High Alpine Road with my father. 
‘The feeling of being in a 911 is just as enjoyable now as it was then. 
‘That’s because the 911 has ensured that the core values of our brand are as visionary today as they were in the first Porsche 356/1 from 1948.’ 

The car is based on the 911 Carrera S, which features a 3.0-litre twin-turbo flat six engine that produces over 400bhp

Of all 1,000,000 911s produced, Porsche believes over 700,000 are still in working order and on the road today.

Being that the 911 is the most iconic Porsche and arguably one of the most-loved models of all time, you’re probably wondering what the staggering asking price is?
Well, for now, there isn’t one, as this will be used exclusively for a world tour celebration that includes treks across the Scottish Highlands, China, the USA and a flying lap of the notorious Nürburgring in Germany.
Once the globe-trotting has concluded for this classy car, it will take pride of place in the Porsche Museum in Stuttgart. 

The car will feature in the Porsche Museum near the manufacturer’s headquarters in Germany once it returns from the round-the-world trip

Finishing touches: The badges and emblems on the car are all gold, replicating those on the first 911 created in 1963

Just in case you forget which car this is, Porsche has incorporated 1,000,000 into the digital instrument cluster.

 

THE CREATION OF THE PORSCHE 911 
Professor Ferdinand Alexander Porsche (right), the son of Ferry Porsche and older brother of Wolfgang, was the creative brain behind the 911.
The German designer, nicknamed Butzi, joined the family company in 1956 where he worked in the technical design department.
In 1962 he was made the manager of the Porsche design studios and the following year he showed off the Porsche 901, which was later renamed the 911. He passed away in 2012 aged 76.
Despite being more than 50 years old, car fans continue to line up to buy a Porsche 911 – with more than 32,000 sold around the world last year.

angle2EINE REISE NACH SCHOTTLANDPorsche 356 A Bj. 1959 - sehr guter Zustand, für Rennen aufgebaut!Anzeige gefunden, sofort in das Auto verliebt - Anbieter Border Reivers?? Wo- Schottland?? Also, einen Flug gebucht nach Edinburgh und kurzer Hand auf die Insel geflogen.Ganz idyllisch ein Stück hinter Glasgow an einem See gelegen hat sich die Firma "Border Reivers" versteckt und auf hochwertige Autos spezialisiert.Der Inhaber - Tom Fitzsimmons ist mehr als freundlich uns hilfsbereit und versucht seinen Kunden fast jeden Wunsch von den Augen abzulesen, hat uns spät nachts noch zum Essen ausgeführt und kurz vor Mitternacht nach zurück nach Glasgow gefahren. Wir konnten in einer blitzsauberen Halle das Objekt der Begierde in aller Ruhe inspizieren (und alle anderen Auto's auch noch) und durften danach eine Probefahrt durch die Highlands absolvieren.Sämtliche Sonderwünsche und Umbauten wurden durch Border Reivers noch erledigt und gegen Entgelt wurde der Wagen noch bis vor die Haustüre in Deutschland geliefert. Ein wirklich perfekter und freundlicher Service der nicht selbstverständlich ist.Many thanks Tom, it was great to make business with you!Thomas Eder aus Bayern Thomas Eder Racing his Porsche at the Nurburgring(Translated below)A TRIP TO SCOTLAND to veiw a 1959 Porsche 356A - Very good condition, built for racing!  As per the add, I fell in love with the car which was offered by Border Reivers, So a flight booked flown to  Scotland. Quite a bit away from idyllic Glasgow situated on a lake,is where the company "Border Reivers" hides and specializes in high quality cars. The owner - Tom Fitzsimmons is more than friendly to us and very helpful. Caters to his customers every whim. He gave us late night run to Glasgow for a meat, shortly before midnight after back after it. We were in a spotless showroom, full of the objects of desire. He gave us peace to inspect and allowed us to undergo a test drive through the highlands afterwards. We agreed the purchase and some special requests and modifications to be carried out which were done by Border Reivers. We paid for the car and it was delivered to our doorstep in Munich, Germany in a covered transporter. A truly perfect and friendly service which is not self-evident. Many thanks Tom, it was great to do business with you!ThomasEder aus BayernThomas Eder Racing his Porsche at the Nurburgring
