The millionth 911 is built

The German manufacturer has officially built one million vehicles of its most iconic: the Porsche 911. And yes, they have done it in style 54 years since the first.

Autoexpress reports that the "The one-off Porsche 911 Carrera S - commissioned by Porsche itself for display at the Porsche Museum - was treated to a number of special upgrades in honour of the extraordinary milestone. The car was refined by bespoke personalisation department Porsche Exclusive and several special design elements allude to the very first car from 1963."

There is nothing Gusheshe loves more than a 911 and it is a little disappointed that this 911 is destined to become only a museum piece. What a waste. The thing is still capable of a 4.1 second 0-100 dash!

If you're wondering why it is green, it is in dedication to Ferdinand Porsche's son, Ferry, whose first 911 was green. Who knew?

Porsche Chairman, Dr Wolfgang Porsche remarked that, “54 years ago, I was able to take my first trips over the Grossglockner High Alpine Road with my father. The feeling of being in a 911 is just as enjoyable now as it was then.

“That’s because the 911 has ensured that the core values of our brand are as visionary today as they were in the first Porsche 356/1 from 1948”.

Cheers to Porsche! Here's to a million more.
