Okay, now that we’re (not quite) over all that, we can drink in the details of the Sport Classic. The Turbo-esque body is something of a giveaway as to the fundamentals discussed above, albeit sans haunch-mounted intakes or an active wing. The Sport Classic is smooth-shouldered and possessed of a delightfully retro 2.7 RS-aping ‘ducktail’ wing, as well as a ‘double bubble’ roof and ‘fuchs’ style wheels.
Sport Grey Metallic is a new colour for the Sport Classic, though it’ll also be available in Solid Black, Agate Grey Metallic or Gentian Blue Metallic. Twin Sports Grey stripes straddle the bonnet, roof and spoiler to be the biggest giveaway that it’s a Sport Classic from a distance. Get up close and you might also note the gold ‘911 Sport Classic’ badging and the Porsche Heritage badge on the deck lid, joining Exclusive Manufaktur badging elsewhere on the car.
On the inside, the Pepita houndstooth fabric pattern is back and in satisfying abundance, covering the door panels and seat centres. It’s fabulously old-school in combination with the black/cognac leather. Adorning the wood trim is a delightful numbered 911 Sport Classic badge matching the gold on the exterior badging.
