Porsche Unveiling The 911 S/T Special-Edition on its 60th Anniversary
Porsche is commemorating the 60th anniversary of the 911 with a special edition to ameliorate driving pleasure: Limited to 1,963 units, the Porsche 911 S/T offers a lightweight design and an uncompromising experience.
This exclusive anniversary edition blends the best features of both the 911 GT3 with Touring Package and the 911 GT3 RS into a one-of-a-kind amalgamation of agility and dynamics. It combines a 4.0-litre, 386 kW (525 PS) boxer engine from the RS with a short-ratio manual transmission and is further perfected by an especially lightweight construction combined with components that favour manoeuvrability and control.
The name of the new 911 S/T pays homage to its roots in the first generation 911. Back in 1969, Porsche offered a special race version of the 911 S they called the 911 ST. They modified elements such as the chassis, wheels, engine and body which helped improve acceleration, brakes and corner grip for drivers. Aero dynamics were not employed in these models at this time. The spirit of the original has been kept alive in this anniversary model; it takes elements from both the 911 GT3 RS and Touring Package with added lightweight components created for this particular model only to give drivers an unparalleled experience within the GT portfolio.
The 911 S/T is particularly agile and direct due to its lightweight design. Components such as the bonnet, roof, front wings, doors with their striking inlets, roll cage, rear axle anti-roll bar, shear panel and magnesium wheels are all made of carbon-fibre-reinforced plastic (CFRP). In addition, Porsche also fits the car with the PCCB system, lithium-ion starter battery and lightweight glass as standard. An additional DIN kerb weight reduction of 40kg compared to a manual 911 GT3 Touring is achieved through reduced insulation and omitting rear-axle steering as well as powertrain weight savings.
The engineers at Porsche have developed a special lightweight clutch for the 911 S/T, in collaboration with a single-mass flywheel, to cut 10.5 kg from the rotating mass and bring about impressive rev rise and directness. The six-speed manual transmission has shorter gear ratios than the 911 GT3, which leads to greater immediacy in its dynamics and lets it reach 100 km/h in just 3.7 seconds with a top speed of 300 km/h.
You can also enjoy the alluring sound of the standard lightweight sports exhaust system that enhances the thrilling driving experience. The 911 S/T is unique among its peers as it sports a double-wishbone front-axle design and multi-link rear axle without rear-axle steering that are perfectly calibrated by dampers and control systems.
