New 991 Club Coupe

Don't get too excited, it's not a Clubsport but a special edition reserved for Porsche club members


Are you a member of the official Porsche club? Lucky you - you have the right to join a draw for one of 12 specially built Carrera S based 911 Club Coupes. As long as you don't live in China or India, where the competition won't be running. Assuming you're one of the lucky dozen you'll still have to pay 142,831 euros (plus VAT) for the actual car but just think of the glory when you bring it along to the next club gathering...

Porsche will be building 13 of these cars in recognition of the 13 owners who founded Germany's first Porsche clubs 60 years ago. It'll keep one for itself, the remaining 12 offered up in the draw. A special exhibition at the Porsche Museum has also been staged to celebrate the milestone and features a dozen rare or noteworthy Porsches and a host of other exhibits and memorabilia.

And what of the car? Well, it gets Brewster Green paintwork and colour-matched 20-inch wheels and the Powerkit upgrade to 430hp. Various trimmings signify the rarity of the car, including "lettering individually created for each customer", without mentioning what said lettering will spell out.

If you're tempted you can read all about the car here and declare your interest formally here with more information about the exhibition here.
