by Lawrence Romanosky on February 26, 2014

Sport Chrono in Beige

Ordering a Porsche 911 becomes a little bit more involved when you have a look at the car configurator and start to choose all the options. Keeping in mind it is your car and you can build it any way you want, we at Porsche Centre Calgary can offer some suggestions. We tend to group the individual options into categories; Performance, Luxury, Appearance, Electronics and Personalization. Generally most builds are heavier in one or two of these categories, and lighter in the others as befits the customers use for the vehicle and personal style.

Ordering A Porsche 911 p. 2: Allocations and Production

Porsche Factory 911

Faced with all the Porsche 911 variants, the myriad of colours, multiple trim levels and hundreds of options, it isn’t surprising that many prospective owners are slightly uneasy placing their order.  Of course one could make it easy on themselves by walking into the dealer and purchasing a car on the showroom floor, and this certainly makes car dealers happy, but for many the Porsche 911 is a reward that they have waiting a long time for and they want to make the most of the process and take extra pride in the vehicle that they helped create.  Understanding the manufacturer production schedules and dealer allocation can help to save a frustrating wait for your Factory-Order Porsche.

Ever wish there was a destination dedicated to celebrating the automobile? Well, there just so happens to be one, and it’s been around since 1994. Appropriately named “Autostadt” (which is German for “car city”), the 6.4 km facility is located in Wolfsburg, Germany, and has served as a mecca for European auto enthusiasts. And just recently, Porsche erected its very own pavilion, located on the southeast end of the Autostadt grounds.

The pavilion was built in a mere ten months, and was executed in close cooperation with Dr. Ing. h.c. F. Porsche AG and the Autostadt, Henn Architekten (architecture), HG Merz Architekten (presentation) and WES & Partner landscape architects.

Situated along the Koller axis, an important line connecting Wolfsburg’s Klieversberg and castle, the pavilion extends far over the surface of the lagoon. This location works as a new focal point for the park and lagoon landscape. The unique shape of the roof creates a protected space. In line with the Porsche tradition of lightweight construction, the spatial envelope based on a monocoque (French for “single shell”) design forms the self-supporting structural system. A stainless steel surface, combined with dynamically elegant lines, clearly alludes to Porsche automobile styling.

The pavilion interior welcomes guests with a minimalist, subtle look. Contoured edges without angular lines draw attention to the cars on display. “In the beginning, I looked around but couldn’t find the car of my dreams. So I decided to build it myself.” This quote from Ferry Porsche welcomes visitors into the display area. The “dream car,” a Porsche 356 from 1948, is the starting point for a group of 25 silver models in 1:3 scale. At the other end, guests see three current Porsche models, which are the Boxster S, 911 Carrera S , and Panamera S Hybrid.

Automotive theme park guests at the inauguration of the pavilion will encounter Porsche in other areas as well. Vintage car fans can look forward to special classic car models in the glass cases throughout the park. Younger sports car fans also have the opportunity to take their children’s driving licence test in one of two electric Porsches. Moreover, workshop participants from schools and vocational colleges will, under supervision, restore an old Porsche Super 308 tractor – a witness to Porsche’s history, when Zuffenhausen’s product range encompassed not only sports cars but tractors as well.

From the outside, the Porsche Classic house appears to be a minimal warehouse. But step inside, and Six 959s, a Carrera GT, a 550 Spyder, an Abarth 356, a Super 90, to name a few, can be found on the floor. Interestingly enough, every one of the cars in the facility were sold to consumers, driven around the world, and eventually found their way to the Stuttgart sanctuary.

Porsche Classic itself is a division of Porsche AG that manages and caters to, well, owners of classic Porsche models. It offers components to customers looking to restore their old Porsches street cars of ten years old or more, along with in-house restoration services.

And in terms of longevity statistics, just over 70 percent of all Porsche models ever built are still registered on the road — which speaks volumes in terms of value and owner care. Porsche owners from all over the world will even send their classics to the Porsche Classic house for routine maintenance, or even to be fully restored.

But if sending a Porsche to Stuggart for fixing up seems a tad steep, all Porsche dealers possess allocation to order whatever part a classic Porsche owner needs— a selection of roughly 35,000 parts. Though if sending the classic model over is an absolute must, owners can rest assured that their car will be carefully, thoroughly, and passionately touched up by workers who share the kind of devotion and affection for the brand that exceed expectations — some with over forty years of experience in the company — with specialists for just about everything imaginable when it comes to the Porsche family.

Just how thorough and intricate is the restoration process? It’s so detailed, that Porsche even revisits the old manufacturing processes and tooling used relevant  to whatever model being maintained or restored. And in doing so, the model in question actually retains its value greater than a typical, random shop job. And that alone makes Porsche Classic amazingly special.

In 1948, the first Porsche was born. It didn’t take long for it to develop a cult following, where the Porsche Club was established just four years down the road. The group consisted of of seven Porsche drivers, and was formally known as the the Westfälischer Porsche Club Hohensyburg, now known as the Porsche Club Westfalen e. V., on May 26, 1952. That same year saw the formation of a second Porsche Club with six members initially – the Porsche Club Berlin e. V. The movement took off and there are now 640 official Porsche Clubs in 75 countries with a total of approximately 181,000 members. They are all enthusiastic about the Porsche brand and are part of a unique Porsche family.

To mark the 60th anniversary of the founding, Porsche has planned something very special. In honour of the 13 founding Porsche Club members and all Porsche Club members worldwide, Porsche Community Management has teamed up with Porsche Exclusive to create an exceptional vehicle: the 911 Club Coupe. Only 12 911 Club Coupes will be made available to Club members, which will have the opportunity, through a lottery, to acquire one of the €142,831, or $175,580 USD works of art. One vehicle will remain at Porsche to honor the Porsche Club World. Lottery winners will have their name engraved on the door sill — making it extremely special.

Using the Carrera S as a base, the 911 Club Coupe features a Carrera S Powerkit providing an extra 30 horsepower, making a total 430 hp and quickening the 0-to-100-kph sprint to just 4.0 seconds. The PASM option drops the car by 20 millimeters over its 20-inch Sport Techno rims, and the Sport Design package adds a new front fascia and a tasteful ducktail spoiler out back. It will come in a Brewster Green paint with an Espresso interior, and finished with glossy script on the doors.
