Classic Looks, Modern Capability
The Graphite Grey finish on this 2014 Porsche 911 50th Anniversary Edition appears to be immaculate, as evidenced by the extensive photo gallery with plenty of close-up detail shots. Its an under-the-radar color that looks amazing on this car and really makes the hood-mounted Porsche crest pop.
Special aspects of these 50th Anniversary models that are a tip-of-the-hat to the 1963 original include polished trim on the front intakes, window surrounds, rear intake slats, and strips between the tail lights. There is also the rear “911 50” emblem that makes use of the original 911’s logo design.
Features include adaptive bi-xenon headlamps with washers, integrated fog lamps, tinted windows, paint-protection film on the leading edge of the rear fenders, a speed-activated rear spoiler, and polished quad exhaust outlets that are part of the stainless-steel sport exhaust system.
The staggered-width 20” Sport Classic alloys are a modern tribute to the legendary Fuchs wheels of the past, featuring Porsche crest center caps and valve stem caps. They are wrapped in Michelin Pilot Sport 4S rubber sized 245/35 up front and 305/30 out back.
Braking is handled by six-piston front and four-piston rear calipers, finished in red with white PORSHCE lettering that clamp drilled rotors at all four corners. As part of the Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM) system that this car is fitted with, it sits 20 mm lower than a standard Carrera S.
Per the owner, there is no rust present on the vehicle and history of paint or body work.
Featuring the Classic Interior scheme, this 50th Anniversary Edition 911 looks amazing with black leather seats and Pepita inserts. This patterned two-tone woven textile is an immediate callout to early 911s and looks so incredibly elegant here. It is set off by silver contrast stitching on the seats, doors, dashboard, and steering wheel.
The front buckets are 14-way power adjustable, sport embroidered “911 50” headrest logos, and are in tremendous shape with little evidence of wear. That rings true for the rest of the cabin that shows clean surfaces, little to no wear, and evidence of serious upkeep.
Wrapped in black leather, the beefy 3-spoke SportDesign steering wheel frames a pair of shifter paddles and instrumentation designed specifically for these cars. The combination of green figures and scales over black backers with white dials was used on the 911 until 1967.
They consist of an oil temperature and pressure gauge, 200-mph speedometer with odometer reading 51,010 miles, 9,000-rpm tachometer, configurable display screen, and combination coolant temperature and fuel level gauge.
Cabin features include the Sport Chrono dash clock, 7” infotainment screen running Porsche Communication Management software, Bose Surround Sound audio, front and rear ParkAssist, as well as center console controls for the selectable drive modes and Porsche Dynamic Chassis Control (PDCC).
This car is fitted with an Alcantara headliner, brushed aluminum trim, cruise control, power-adjustable steering column, dual-zone automatic climate control, “911 50” sill plates and the left-hand ignition, a long-time 911 nod to Le Mans racers. The dash-mounted serialized emblem shows this car is number 1,183 of the 1,963 produced.
Retro Style Rocket
Sitting out back, under a well-maintained shroud, is the original 3.8L horizontally opposed six-cylinder engine. In 50thAnniversary form, it came with the Exclusive Powerkit, which bumped the standard Carrera S output by 30 hp for a total of 430, along with 325 lb.-ft of twist when new.
It mates with a seven-speed PDK transmission to spin the rear wheels with help from the mechanically locking differential. Additional systems consist of PDCC with PASM and Porsche Torque Vectoring. With the PDK, Porsche quoted a 0-60 mph time of just 3.8 seconds for this car.
The owner notes that there are no known issues with the car and all service records will be included with the sale. The most recent maintenance was performed March 2021, consisting of an oil change, new air filter, replacement spark plugs, and brake fluid flush.
Located in Arcadia, California, this 2014 Porsche 911 50th Anniversary Edition has been with the current owner since May 13, 2019. In that time, 6,000 of the 52,000 original miles have been added. It comes with two key fobs and is all-original with no modifications.
Porsche is as renowned for the staggering performance of their flagship 911 as they are for the equally staggering number of special editions created. However, the 50th Anniversary Edition is a truly unique model with just 1,963 ever made that sport exclusive features found nowhere else.
They do not come around all that often so don’t miss this opportunity to own a special piece of Porsche history.
