Porsche has launched its 911 S/T in India for Rs 4.26 Crore (ex-showroom). With this launch, Porsche introduces its most expensive 911 model in India to date. As part of the sports car's 60th anniversary, Porsche unveiled the 911 S/T earlier this month, and production will be limited to only 1,963 examples. The limited-edition 911 S/T is powered by a flat-six petrol engine shared with the 911 GT3 RS, known for its high revs. The S/T also has a lightweight clutch and a short-ratio manual powertrain. Porsche's latest 911 S/T is the company's tribute to the classic 911 S from 1969. The Porsche 911 GT3 RS and the GT3 Touring both provided inspiration for the anniversary edition, which aims to combine aggressive performance and agile handling.

The 911 S/T gets design cues from the racing 911 S in the late 1960s. There is a Gurney flap on the extended rear spoiler of the anniversary model, increasing downforce, and there are 20-inch and 21-inch centre-locking magnesium wheels up front and in the back, respectively. A lightweight sports exhaust system alongside full bucket seats made of carbon fibre reinforced plastic (CFRP) are also standard equipment. The 911 S/T, Porsche claims, has aerodynamics tuned for the street rather than the track. Additionally, a Heritage Design Package is available, which has the same Shoreblue Metallic paint and racing stripes as the 911 S.

Its classic leather-cloth seats, optional Cognac-colored interior trim, perforated Dinamica roof lining, and other elements are all reminiscent of the GT3 RS. In addition, a Classic Green colour scheme decorates the instrument cluster. The Porsche badge and "911 S/T" marking on the trunk are both finished in gold. 

Porsche 911 S/T: Powertrain & Performance

At its core is a 4.0-litre flat-six petrol engine that generates 518bhp and 465Nm of peak torque, making this version a true powerhouse. The gearbox is a 6-speed manual with a shorter gear ratio than the 911 GT3. The car can reach a top speed of 300 km/h and can accelerate from 0 to 100km/h in under 3.7 seconds.

Because it lacks rear-axle steering, is constructed mostly out of carbon fibre-reinforced plastic (CFRP), and has less soundproofing, the Porsche 911 S/T is also the lightest of the 992-generation 911s. Lightweight glass, magnesium wheels, a lithium-ion starting battery, and carbon-ceramic brakes are just some of the standard features of the new model. These reductions allow the 911 S/T to have a kerb weight of just 1,380kg, which is 40kg less than the 911 GT3 Touring manual and 70kg less than the Porsche 911 GT3 RS.
