As Rennsport Reunion has become becoming bigger and better for Porsche Cars North America, they set out to do something special for Reunion V, and that they did. The Exclusive Department unveiled this very chassis at the historic Laguna Seca Raceway in September 2015. Porsche planned a limited production of 25 cars manufactured to commemorate the success of Rennsport and exemplify the excitement these reunions provide and that we all anticipate.
Based on the 991 Carrera GTS, these Rennsport Edition examples were assembled all alike and fitted with tasteful touches. Exclusive chose the PTS Fashion Grey, which is a beloved 356 color, set off with black and red race-like striping and script. The high-gloss Sport Classic-like wheels accentuated the elegant lines of the 991. Inside, leather, carbon fiber, and model designations abound, set off with Carmine accents. This resulted in a stunning presentation; the choices Porsche Exclusive made have created a rare and most likely collectible model.
Boasting 430 horsepower from the naturally aspirated 3.8-liter flat six with 0-60 times as low as 4.2 seconds and track speeds as high as 190 miles per hour. It's perhaps ideal timing for this special car as talk began of the turbocharged second generation 991. It was nice planning by Porsche to hold to low production at a time of transition knowing these manual transmission, rear-wheel drive, naturally aspirated 991s will always be coveted by collectors and enthusiasts alike as they phase out. To date these 25 Rennsport Reunion Carrera GTS models are the most rare and most challenging 991 to obtain.
As you would expect, this particular Rennsport GTS comes to you with everything it was delivered with when new; its completion date was July 30, 2015. That allowed Porsche two months to use this car for marketing photo shoots and other promotions to prepare for its debut on September 27, 2015 at Rennsport Reunion V.
