Porsche Sport Classic

    For fans of Porsche's unforgettable large rear-spoiler designs, the German automaker delivers the limited-edition 911 Sport Classic. Neatly reminiscent of the legendary 911 Carrera RS 2.7 from 1973, the new SC wears a revised front fascia and a double-bubble roof (a modification originally intended to accommodate a helmeted race driver). Nineteen-inch Fuchs-style rims fill the wheel arches and a ducktail spoiler completes the look. Under-the-skin changes include a horsepower bump for the normally aspirated 3.8-liter flat six, from 385 to 408. The engine is matched only to a close-ratio six-speed manual transmission. The new SC accompanies its unique exterior styling with a truly special interior, with espresso-color hide on the seats and breathable center panels made of finely woven leather strips. Contrasting gray leather piping echoes the exterior’s unique Sport Classic gray paint job. Production of the new Sport Classic is limited to 250 examples.

    Pros: With only 250 scheduled for worldwide production, this is sure to be a collector's item.

    Cons: Still no official word on whether it's coming to the U.S.
