Porsche has worked up a treat to celebrate the 60th anniversary of the first two Porsche Clubs, the first of which was founded by seven gentlemen in Westphalia, Germany in 1952, and the second started by another six gentlemen a few months later. Those few enthusiasts and two organizations have grown into 181,000 members among 640 Porsche Clubs in 75 countries. In honor of those humble beginnings, Porsche has created the 911 Club Coupe.

Using the Carrera S as a base, the Club Coupe gets the Carrera S Powerkit providing an extra 30 horsepower, taking the total to 430 hp and dropping the 0-to-100-kph sprint to 4.0 seconds. The PASM option drops the car by 20 millimeters over its 20-inch Sport Techno rims, and the Sport Design package adds a new front fascia and a ducktail spoiler out back. The work is then coated in Brewster Green paint with an Espresso interior, and finished with glossy script on the doors.

The only bittersweet note concerning the 911 Club Coupe is that Porsche is making just 13 of them, and the company is keeping one for itself. The remaining 12 will be awarded to those who win the allotment lottery, entered by registering at the microsite. You have until June 16 to get your name down, and if you are among the chosen your name will be engraved on the door sill – but we assume that's after you've paid €142,831, or $175,580, before taxes for the privilege.

Have a look below for the press release and above for the gallery of a car that will be harder to find than Carmen San Diego.

      Now, I love 911's, but why on earth would anyone want to engrave his name on the car and effectively depreciate its resale value unless he is a diehard loyal fan and would keep it for...wait, nevermind. I TOTALLY see how this makes sense. All kidding aside, if the owner DOES want to sell it, will Porsche offer the new owner a chance to purchase another engraved sill? Cuz, y'know, this is what really matters to me. :P

      I have been a Porsche aficianado since 1976 and love the marque. Currently drive a silver-metallic Turbo cab and loving it. However, I dislike "gimmicks" and I feel that this is just that. Somehow this seems to cheapen the Porsche mystique...am I wrong?

        Porsche is a company like any other doing what companies do best: make money.

      money comes to those who already have money. I say give me money, with which I make money, then I pay you back.

      This looks like a very nice Porsche. My only criticisim is as always, if you saw the 2000 Porsche or this one one you already seen them all. But otherwise nice car.

      another "special" gussied up car....yawn! next year they'll be another extra special version and then there will be the fastest best ever etc., most car guys know the ploy by all these brands.

      An exclusive 911. Yup, exclusive alright. Automatic, green/tan, and 30 more horsepower. Doesn't look anything like any other 911 I've ever seen...
