Porsche 911 50th Anniversary Edition- 2014
The 2014 50th Anniversary Edition 911 was built by Porsche to commemorate the 911’s birthday, 50 years after its production launch in 1964. In homage to 1963, the year the 911 debuted at the 1963 Frankfurt Motor Show, production was limited to 1,963 units; the one seen here is #1480. This example is finished in Geyser Grey Metallic; a color specific to the Anniversary Edition.
As with many special 911s, the differences from a standard model are a series of incremental changes. The 50th Anniversary uses the wider body from a Carrera 4S (but remains only rear-wheel-drive) and is lower than a standard Carrera by 10mm. The 20 inch-alloys are a modern take on the original Fuchs wheels, and the seats are finished in “Pepita” cloth. The combination of these details gives the Anniversary edition a conservative retro look.
In 2014, the $125,050 (base) price tag of the 50th Anniversary represented a $25,200 premium over the price of a base Carrera S. For this premium, buyers received the Powerkit (an extra 30 horsepower and changes to the throttle mapping) and the Sport Chrono Package along with the aforementioned styling cues. This is a price gap, but not such a large one in the Porsche world. To be fair, the Anniversary does have a distinct look, and limited-edition 911’s have a history of retaining their value.
