The journalists published photos of a camouflaged Porsche 911 prototype performed by Sport Classic. The retro car was spotted at the Nürburgring.

Spy shots continue to hint that a new Porsche model is working on a retro version of the 911 Sport Classic sports coupe. In these photos, the novelty is captured on the Nürburgring race track.

The Sport Classic features a retro exterior styling, including a ducktail spoiler reminiscent of the rear of the 911 2.7 RS. There are wider rear fenders like the 911 Turbo, but without the air intakes. The front fascia has also been borrowed from the hotter version of the sports coupe. The wheels are similar to the iconic Fuchs design.

From the exterior, you can expect the new Sport Classic to use the powerplant from the 911 Carrera S.

It is a 3.0-liter six-cylinder twin-turbocharged engine that develops 443 horsepower and 529 Nm of torque.

The previous 911 Sport Classic debuted in 2009. It featured a unique light gray body color with a thin, slightly darker stripe. The cabin used Espresso Nature brown leather and the roof was covered in Alcantara.

Porsche produced just 250 Sport Classic units of the previous generation. However, the company is actively testing an updated version of the model. Expect the new Sport Classic to debut either late this year or early 2022. It will likely carry a higher price tag than the Carrera S due to its unique exterior and interior details.

Not so long ago, AutoTimesNews wrote that a Porsche 718 Spyder with a new engine was photographed at the Nurburgring. Porsche has unveiled the 718 Spyder with updated specifications at the Shanghai Auto Show this week. The convertible was equipped with a less powerful 4-cylinder engine that replaced the previous “six”.
