The No. 001/001 plaque on the dashboard sums up the rarity of this Porsche model: Guided by the principles of the newly launched Porsche Sonderwunsch program, the experts at Porsche Classic created a car that is absolutely unique. In just two and a half years, a used 1998 911 Carrera (Type 996) was transformed into the Porsche 911 Classic Club Coupe, spelled the American way without an accent, because the car was made for the Porsche Club of America (PCA), the sport car brand’s oldest and largest club.
The idea for this unique factory car arose during a meeting between representatives of the Porsche Club of America and Alexander Fabig, now Head of Individualization and Classic at Porsche, and designer Grant Larson from Style Porsche. To keep it secret, the vehicle was known internally as ‘Project Grey’.
“The Type 996 is unjustly overshadowed by the other 911 ranges. That’s why we were happy to choose it as the basis for demonstrating all the things we can do with Porsche Classic and the recently expanded Sonderwunsch program of Porsche AG. In 2009, the 911 Sport Classic, a limited series of 250, had already generated worldwide interest. However, this special model was not sold in the US. With this one-off, we’ve now managed to bring a similarly exciting vehicle concept to the U.S. as well.” says Alexander Fabig, Head of Individualization and Classic at Porsche.
“We wanted to work together to create something unique that would generate enthusiasm. The fact that the finished Porsche 911 Classic Club Coupe looks so sleek and natural is what’s really incredible about this challenging project.” says Tom Gorsuch, President of Porsche Club of America (PCA).
Selected accessories from the Porsche Classic product range have been modified in terms of the material or craft methods used, making them unique to match the special status of ‘Project Grey’. These include the custom-made car cover, the vehicle key in the car color with a leather case, and the tool bag made of woven leather in a Pepita houndstooth pattern. A touring bag is also included.
Porsche Classic aims to preserve and maintain legendary vehicles and the latest classics. Decades of experience with classic Porsche vehicles make the experts the right contacts when it comes to original parts, restoration and repair. The first point of contact for customers with historic Porsche vehicles are the currently 78 certified Porsche Classic partners worldwide, including four Porsche Classic centers.
The PCA is one of the sports car brand’s oldest and largest clubs. Founded in 1955, it now has over 145,000 members and is represented in 147 regions in the US and Canada.

“The Vision AMG shows in spectacular style what electrification could look like at Mercedes-AMG, while staying true to the brand aesthetic. The study’s extreme proportions create fascination and passion for performance – that’s what AMG is all about.
