The 911 Weissach Edition is probably my favorite of the various special or commemorative edition 911s produced by Porsche. Like most Porsche special editions the ‘specialness’ comes almost entirely in the form of aesthetic changes. These are mostly for marketing and to push some sales, but some of them are still interesting combinations even if there’s little in the way of performance improvements. What I like most about the Weissach is that it didn’t bother being tame. Many of the special editions are nice looking 911s; the Weissach sort of bugs out your eyes once you step into the interior. Of the two available color combinations – Platinum Metallic and Metallic Black – the example we see here in Platinum Metallic is probably the more tame of the two. Everything matches so the gaudy interior doesn’t punch you in the face quite as much. But I think it’s a fun combination even if a little over the top. Other enhancements were Platinum Metallic painted Fuchs, sport seats, and rather than the standard 911SC whale tail the Weissach received the whale tail from the 3.0-liter 930 Turbo. This one here sits with 85,576 miles.
