To achieve its lightweight construction, the car features carbon-fibre-reinforced plastic (CFRP) components, magnesium wheels, and a lithium-ion starter battery. Additionally, the 911 S/T comes equipped with a modified chassis, wheels, engine, and body to enhance its overall performance.
The six-speed manual transmission and lightweight clutch further enhance the engine’s responsiveness, resulting in a thrilling driving experience. The car’s aerodynamics have been optimized for the public road, and a Gurney flap on the rear spoiler adds to its sleek design.
For those looking for a more distinctive appearance, the 911 S/T is available with an optional Heritage Design Package. This package offers exclusive exterior colors, decorative foil, and a classic-design Porsche crest, paying homage to the brand’s rich racing heritage.
To further cater to the desires of car enthusiasts, Porsche Design is offering customers of the 911 S/T an exclusive Chronograph 1 – 911 S/T. This luxury timepiece features a titanium case, a flyback function, and the Porsche Design WERK 01.240 with COSC certification at its heart.
