The new 2022 911 Sports Classic is the second car from Porsche's Heritage Design strategy after last year's 911 Targa 4S Heritage Design Edition (seen above alongside the new Sports Classic). The new 911 Sports Classic will be followed by two more collector's cars as part of Porsche's plans to celebrate its cars from the 1960s and 1970s. The new 911 Sports Classic is limited to just 1,250 units.

Speaking about the new 911 Sports Classic, Alexander Fabig, Vice President, Individualization and Classic said, "The Heritage Design models represent the most emotionally driven concepts of the Porsche product strategy. This unique approach sees the Style Porsche design department working with Porsche Exclusive Manufaktur to reinterpret iconic 911 models and equipment from the 1950s through to the 1980s and to revive design features from those decades."

The 2022 911 Sports Classic pays tribute to the legendary Porsches of the 1960s and 70s with its unique 3.7-litre twin-turbocharged engine that produces 542bhp. Power is sent to the rear wheels from the 911 Turbo derived engine via a 7-speed manual gearbox.

This makes the new 911 Sports Classic the most powerful manual Porsche currently on sale today. The gearbox also features an auto-blip function that compensates for engine-speed differences between the gears with a brief burst of revs when shifting down.

The new Sports Classic also features the same Porsche Active Suspension Management system found on the current Turbo and GTS models. The system features axle load tweaks to compensate for the loss of the four-wheel-drive system seen on the 911 Turbo. The Sports Classic also gets ceramic brakes as standard to help bring it to halt.
