Last Porsche 911 of the 991 Generation Comes Off the Production Line

When you hear people discussing Porsche, the model that is most commonly referred to is the 911. People of a certain age who remember the Tom Cruise movie “Risky Business” always want to discuss the famous Porsche scenes with Cruise driving his father’s super-cool car, even though that model was the 928.

However, changes are taking place with the automaker. It was announced recently that part of the 991 series is coming to an end with the final version having rolled off the production line, a 911 Speedster.

Porsche AG Chief Research and Development Officer Michael Steiner explains the moves.

“Porsche stands for both tradition and innovation. This is reflected nowhere more clearly than in the core of the brand, the 911. The 911 replaced the 356 in 1963 and, in the decades that followed, our rear engine model grew into an unrivalled sports car icon.” Steiner said. “The 991 generation in particular has set new standards in terms of performance, drivability and efficiency. It fills me with pride, as well as a touch of sadness, to have to send it off into retirement. For myself, I can say that the 991 has given me enormous pleasure.”

The 991 generation was launched in 2011 as one of the biggest development steps in the history of the 911. Nearly 90 percent of all components were newly designed or had undergone substantial further development. Thanks to a lightweight body made of an innovative aluminum-steel composite, it was the first time that a new 911 had weighed less than its predecessor.

The chassis, which benefited from a 100 millimeter-longer wheelbase than the model that it replaced, could be equipped with a new, optional roll stabilization system, Porsche Dynamic Chassis Control (PDCC) and set the benchmark in terms of driving dynamics. The Cabriolet followed in the spring of 2012 with another innovation. When closed, the lightweight magnesium bows made it possible to achieve a coupé-like curve of roof that had never been seen before, and with a silhouette that was retained even at high speeds.

With the Speedster being the final edition of the 991 series, it is a bittersweet moment for Porsche but there’s no need to feel too much sadness. Porsche is continuing on with many iconic models that most are familiar with and Porsche is viewing 2020 with much excitement. Browse all the Porsche models in stock at Porsche Atlanta Perimeter.
