The final Porsche 911 type 991 has rolled off the production line
Say goodbye to the 991!
It's now eight years since the Porsche 911 type 991 was launched. Today is a great day as the last car has come off the production line. The Porsche 911 type 991 is officially retired! And the latest model is also exceptional as it is a rare Speedster version. The latter will certainly become a future collector.
Incredibly, the Porsche 911 type 991 was using only the third generation platform since the launch of the model in the 1960s! The bodywork used an innovative set of aluminium-steel composite materials. As a result, the 911 type 991 is the first 911 that is lighter than the model it replaces!
The design was obviously not a revolution, since the 911 type 991 kept all the classic attributes of the 911. The headlights are still circular and the taillights are thinner than before with a more modern LED signature. The evolution was smooth, smoother than the 911 Type 996, which adopted headlights with a questionable design.
This generation of 911 was the best-selling 911 with 233,540 units sold worldwide. It also witnessed two important milestones in the life of the model. It celebrated the 50-year anniversary of the 911 in 2013 and enabled the 911 to reach a total of one million units produced, all generations combined. Now it's the turn of the 911 type 992 to do the same!
