When Porsche first entered the Taiwanese market, a 1972 911E was the first vehicle to be sold there. The local division of the automaker collaborated with the Manufaktur special division to build a special 911 GTS-based vehicle to commemorate the occasion. It has the same Irish Green paint as the Lizard Green car that was sold fifty years ago. Since Taiwan is a subtropical island with numerous evergreen forests, this colour was also chosen.
One of the first Asian markets for Porsche and the 911 Carrera GTS-50 Year Anniversary was actually Taiwan. For the special occasion, One of a Kind receives a variety of unique design cues. For instance, the Formosa coastline is depicted in white ink on the bottom half of the doors. To remind everyone that this isn’t your standard 911, a “Porsche Exclusive Manufaktur” logo is featured on the quarter glass.
Red brake callipers on a black Turbo S Exclusive Design vehicle stand out against the exterior’s green hue. The wheels are finished with a green outer lip to match the body of the car and have a centerlock design. To complete the exterior changes, the large Porsche letters between the taillights now have a matte black appearance on the back.
Open the doors and you’ll be greeted by the aluminum sills with green “50 Years Porsche in Taiwan” lettering. Above the glovebox, an embroidered logo says the same thing and is joined by the model’s designation in a larger font. For the center console, a special “50” logo was designed and it too comes along with the make and model. Elsewhere, the predominantly black cabin has a leather and Alcantara combination.
The one-off 911 GTS Coupe will be auctioned in the coming months. Porsche Taiwan says all proceeds from the sale will be redirected to benefit its charity partners. Doing so will allow the peeps from Zuffenhausen “to express gratitude for the local community and paying it forward to the Taiwanese society.”
