Porsche has announced that the current iteration of the iconic 911 sports car, the Type 997, has reached a milestone. The 100,000th 997 has rolled out of Zuffenhausen, and the significance here is not the number, but how quickly it got there. The first 997 was completed in April 2004, and no other 911 generation has reached the 100,000 car mark in so short a time. The landmark vehicle, shown above, is a Guards Red 911 Carrera S with a manual transmission which will be delivered to a German customer. How'd Porsche get to the number so fast? Well, obviously there's demand for the car, and production capabilities have only improved over the years. We wouldn't be at all surprised to see the next-gen 911 repeat this feat.
