Revamped & Retooled! The Porsche 911 Classic Club Coupe

Back in 1997, Porsche revealed the fifth-generation Porsche 911, also known as the Type 996. Known for its water-cooled engines and unusual front headlights, it’s one of the least popular 911s created. The Porsche Club of America decided to take the car and showcase its potential, revamping it into something special. The 911 Classic Club Coupe is a one-of-one restoration assisted by Porsche Classic.

Based on a 1998 911 Carrera, the car boasts the chassis, brakes, and engine of a 996.2 911 GT3. The body was strengthened and modified during the restoration to hold a double-bubble roof and ducktail spoiler. This look was inspired by the 1972 911 Carrera RS 2.7. Finishing off the accessories is a set of 18-inch forged Fuchs wheels.

The vehicle features a Sport Grey Metallic paint job with light Sport Grey Metallic stripes with blue outlines. The design also includes the “Classic Club Coupe” script on the sides and “Classic Club Coupe” badging. The interior features a primarily black aesthetic with slate gray accents and a perforated Alcantara headliner and woven leather twill on the door panels and seat centers.

Beautiful doesn’t do it justice. Check out the stunning machine in the images below and find out more from Porsche. In the meantime, keep it locked with The Culture Curators for more new rides and classic cars coming very soon.
