Promises to be something special

The Porsche 911 will celebrate its 50th anniversary at the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show and a new report is indicating the company is preparing to mark the watershed moment by unveiling a special edition.

In an interview with Motoring, Porsche 911 product line director August Achleitner revealed "there is something prepared, something special" for the car's golden anniversary. He declined to say what the company has in store but it's likely a special edition with unique badging and, possibly, retro styling cues.

Besides the special edition, Achleitner promised a variety of new 911 variants. As he noted, “When the market development drops and the sales drop or we come to the end of the lifecycle then it makes sense to bring other varieties."

I wonder how gross a color they could pick and still sell them all out. I just want to see the new Targa.

dear porsche, can we see a carrera club sport? i mean, the gt3 series and normal are too far apart, i want a lightweight 2+2 with maybe 420-430hp or 4.0 450hp weekend car for wife and son so fuel consumption is not too critical of an element, like the 80's 3.2 club sport variant of todays car, bit less sound proofing, less sound system, less leather, a smaller air condition system maybe..but more performance...and please, not more wing as a standard carrera...but lower and aftermarket wheel friendly, thank you
