Driven: Porsche 911 SC
Posted: 20 May 2010
The Sport Classic is built by Porsche Exclusive, the department that tailors cars to suit more individual tastes. Their catchphrase is ‘Unique yourself' which, aside from the mangled misuse of the English language (shouldn't ‘unique' put you in a class of one, not 250?) also inadvertently highlights one of the problems of Porsche's success over the past two decades, namely the ubiquity of the brand. So what exactly is ‘unique' about the Sport Classic compared with run-of-the-mill Porsche 911s? The most obvious difference is the ducktail rear spoiler, which takes its inspiration from the 1973 Carrera 2.7 RS and has been developed in Porsche's wind tunnel. It looks very cool, and is indeed unique to the SC.
