Porsche 911 Classic Club Coupe
Introduced in 1997, the fifth-generation Porsche 911 — otherwise known as the Type 996 — is perhaps the least popular 911, known for its water-cooled engines and unusual front headlights. It's this unpopularity that made the Porsche Club of America decide to take and show its potential. The result is the 911 Classic Club Coupe, a one-of-one restoration completed with a huge assist by Porsche Classic. Based on a 1998 911 Carrera, it has the chassis, brakes, and engine of a 996.2 911 GT3. During the complete restoration, the body was strengthened, and modified to accommodate a double-bubble roof, ducktail spoiler inspired by the 1972 911 Carrera RS 2.7, and 18-inch forged Fuchs wheels. The Sport Grey Metallic paint has light Sport Grey Metallic stripes with blue outlines running from the hood to the spoiler, "Classic Club Coupe" script on the sides, and "Classic Club Coupe" badging. Inside is a primarily black interior with slate grey accents, a perforated Alcantara headliner, and a woven leather twill Pepita patten on the door panels and seat centers. The resulting car is a one-of-one affair that took two and a half years to complete.
