The largest Porsche club organisation in the world – Porsche Cars North America, is celebrating its 60th anniversary with a unit limited-production run of the Club Coupe.

“The Porsche Club of America is home to passionate ambassadors who have been fostering the appreciation and recognition of Porsche for 60 years,” said Andre Oosthuizen, Vice President of Marketing for Porsche Cars North America.

The GTS Club Coupe is powered by an enhanced version of the Carrera S engine, which is also found in the 911 Carrera GTS. The top track speed of this anniversary edition vehicle is 190mph and it goes from standstill to 60mph in just 3.8 seconds.
The GTS Club Coupe features the 44mm wider body of the 911 Carrera 4 models with a rear wheel drive platform, SportDesign side mirrors and black framed Bi-XenonTM headlights with Porsche’s Dynamic Light System. Its taillights, tinted in black, come as standard and the doors are marked with black “Club Coupe”.
A more pronounced front fascia as well as a “ducktail” rear spoiler gives the special car a striking, yet classic, appearance. 20-inch Sport Classic wheels painted in semi-gloss black with polished wheel centres and rim flanges are also standard on the GTS Club Coupe.
The interior is highlighted by the GTS Interior Package. The stitching, seat belts, and rev counter are held in contrasting Carmine Red, while the dashboard trim strips, door trim and centre console are finished in carbon fibre.
The striking steering wheel has a Red 12 o’clock marker and two-tone stitching in Carmine Red and Blue.
The centre compartment lid is embossed with a “60” and the dashboard trim is personalised with “GTS Club Coupe 60 Years Porsche Club of America” lettering above the glove compartment.
