Porsche unveils 911 Carrera GTS Rennsport Reunion Edition

Tuesday, September 29, 2015

Rennsport Reunion is such a big deal to Porsche that the automaker had its Exclusive department build a Rennsport Reunion edition of the 911 Carrera GTS, which was unveiled yesterday at the Porsche Park area. The car is only available with a manual transmission, and only 25 will be made. Additionally, the car comes as is — customers will not be able to choose additional options.

The color is called Fashion Grey — a peculiar choice for color name — and other visual enhancements to the GTS include a black-and-red strip that stretches from the Porsche crest on the hood all the way back to the rear decklid; a similar stripe between the wheel well with "Porsche" script on the doors; 20-inch Sport Classic wheels in high-gloss black, which PCNA Sports Car Project manager Andrew Lennon says are normally only available through Porsche Tequipment; and a high-gloss black treatment applied to the bottom of the side mirrors and antenna.

The car comes with many standard features, including 18-way adaptive sport seats, PASM sport suspension, Bose audio package, and rear park assist.

On the inside, the car gets more visual accoutrements. Carbon fiber dashboard trim above the glove box and on the doorsills both display "Rennsport Reunion Edition." The GTS interior package gives it Carmine Red stitching on the Sport Design steering wheel, door panel trim, dashboard trim, floor mats and GTS headrest logos. Carmine Red is also seen on the tachometer and the seat belts.

To really play up this particular event, the Rennsport Reunion V logo is embossed on the center console. The key is also painted Fashion Grey and comes with a leather pouch with Carmine Red and the name of the car.

Justification of the special edition is evident in the number of Porsche enthusiasts that come to Rennsport Reunion. Vice President of Marketing Andre Oosthuizen said at yesterday's "grand opening" party that  35,000+ spectators could visit Laguna Seca before the weekend is over.

The 911 Carrear GTS Rennsport Reunoin Edition goes on sale now for $148,335, not including $995 destination charge.
