2024 Porsche 911 S/T Special-Edition

Porsche is celebrating the 60th anniversary of the 911 with a special edition built for maximum driving enjoyment: in a limited run of 1,963 examples, the Porsche 911 S/T offers lightweight design and a purist driving experience.  The Porsche 911 S/T borrows from the GT3 RS with its 4.0-litre, naturally-aspirated flat six-engine. It delivers 386 kW and connects to a close-ratio six-speed manual transmission. This vehicle marks the first time Porsche has paired the GT3 RS engine with a manual gearbox.

The rear-wheel steer system is ditched to save weight and complexity, and the hood, front wings, ‘cage, rear anti-roll bars and shear panel underneath are all carbon fiber. The wheels are centrelock and magnesium, the glass thinned to shave precious pounds. Cobble all this together with the slim carbon bucket seats along with weight savings from the powertrain and clutch, and the S/T becomes the lightest production 911. With a kerbweight of 1,380kg, it’s 40kg lighter than a manual GT3 Touring. All that means the 911 S/T can go from 0 to 60 mph in 3.5 seconds and can achieve a top track speed of 186 mph. Slower than a PDK-equipped GT3, sure, but still plenty quick.

As far as styling for the special edition, the optional Heritage Design package, as well as Shore Blue Metallic exterior paint, and the Ceramica wheel color are all exclusive to the S/T. The interior has cloth seat centers in Classic Cognac with black pinstriping. The Porsche logo and the 911 S/T model designation on the rear of the car are finished in a gold color.

Pricing will start at $291,650, and deliveries are expected to begin in spring 2024 for the U.S.
