Sucks only 500 Porsches will get this paint job. And each costs almost $300k.
It's been a banner day for Porsche. Not only did it reach new highs after it officially released the most powerful 911 ever made, but it brought another special 911 along with it. It’s easy to forget now that the GT2 RS is hogging headlines, but for a brief moment in Porsche history, the 911 Turbo S Exclusive Series was the most powerful 911 in the lineup. Based on the 580 horsepower Turbo S, the 911 Turbo S Exclusive Series was tuned to 607 horsepower because rich people need to feel better than the rest to spend money.
That’s all good and well, but the exclusive Power Kit only added 27 horsepower. More appealing, at least to the eye, is the unique color scheme the denotes this as one of 500 highly limited models. We got to see it firsthand at the 2017 Goodwood Festival of Speed and thankfully our eyes were behind the camera, allowing our retinas to remain intact despite the searing Gold Yellow Metallic paint. Toning things down while simultaneously turning up the heat are carbon fiber finished hood stripes and a roof and side skirts with the same treatment. For the $292,553 base price (yes, that’s only $647 cheaper than the GT2 RS), Porsche was sure to throw in a stellar interior as well, but none of it catches as many stares as the paint job. See for yourself.
