To celebrate the production of the 250,000th 911, Porsche, as they are wont to do, released a special edition 3.2 Carrera to commemorate this milestone. Appropriately these were referred to as the Commemorative Edition (also sometimes referred to as the Jubilee Edition). Produced for the 1988 model year, the Commemorative Edition 911 featured special interior and exterior paint and leather in the form of a Diamond Blue Metallic exterior and Silver Blue Metallic interior. The standard Fuchs were painted to match the exterior color and buyers also got Ferry Porsche’s named in script on the headrests. In most other regards these were similar to other Carreras of the period, but for those with a particular fondness for these colors the Commemorative Edition at least allowed those 911s to be slightly distinguished from the rest. The example we see here is a 1988 Porsche 911 Carrera Targa Commemorative Edition, located in California, with around 118,000 miles on it.

As any Porschephile knows, the marque loves to produce special edition variants, especially of the 911, to signify various milestones in the brand’s life. So when it came time for the 250,000th 911 to roll off the line, Porsche surely couldn’t let that milestone pass by without recognition. Built in 1987 as a model year 1988 car, the Commemorative Edition 911 (also referred to as the Jubilee Edition) featured Diamond Blue Metallic paint on the exterior, with matching Fuchs wheels, and a Silver Blue Metallic interior with Porsche script on the headrests. Other than a short-throw shifter, the Commemorative Edition was mechanically similar to a standard 3.2 Carrera with G50 5-speed transmission. The example featured here is a Cabriolet, located in Miami, and has seen a very reasonable 37,198 miles.
