Support at each corner is ramped up – although since PASM is adaptive it still works on uneven surfaces – throttle response is sharpened and a brilliant throttle blip function perfectly matches engine and road speeds on the way down the gears.

The 50th Anniversary Edition is rear-wheel drive, but it uses the wider bodyshell from the four-wheel-drive Carrera 4.

What People Are Saying Give it to me straight

Powertrain

The engine is exceptional, with decent torque from the mid-range and a real appetitive for revs at the top end.
by EVO (Mar, 2014)
With the optional sports exhaust fitted the flat-six howl at high revs is addictive, particularly across the final 200rpm; a pity, then, that with such long gearing you’ll need to travel beyond the UK motorway speed limit even in second gear to hear it.
by EVO (Mar, 2014)
The driver is still aware that the engine is slung out behind the rear axle, but it doesn’t dominate the driving experience as it once did.
by EVO (Mar, 2014)

Transmission

The seven-speed manual gearbox has improved over the past couple of years, but the throw still isn’t as slick at that of Porsche’s brilliant six-speed manuals.
by EVO (Mar, 2014)
Our test car featured the seven-speed manual, but the paddle-shift PDK gearbox is also available at extra cost.
by EVO (Mar, 2014)
That car was limited to 250 units and boasted much more substantial upgrades over the standard car, so we don’t expect the 50th Anniversary Edition to rise in value as the Sport Classic has done.
by EVO (Mar, 2014)

Engine

The twin-turbo BMW M6 is much closer on price, but the 911 50th Anniversary Edition is the more rewarding sports car.
by EVO (Mar, 2014)
Over and above the standard car, the most readily identifiable upgrades include the Fuchs-inspired 20-inch alloy wheels, the darkened headlights surrounds and the chrome highlights across the engine cover.
by EVO (Mar, 2014)

Manual

Geyser Grey paint, shown here, is specific to the 50th Anniversary Edition, while a darker shade of grey and the standard Carrera S hue Basalt Black is also available.
by EVO (Mar, 2014)

Handling

We still lament the loss of the 997’s wonderful hydraulic steering and the 991 has also lost some of the earlier car’s immediacy and urgency of response, but it remains a crushingly effective sports car.
