Now this is a pretty awesome thing. I didn’t realize it, but Pon Porsche Import in the Netherlands was the first company to import Porsches. Their first Porsches arrived in 1949. The dealership in Leusden is still going strong today.
To celebrate 60 years of importing into the Dutch market, Porsche has released the 911 4S Pon Edition (I keep seeing Pong Edition when I read that…maybe they’ll make one for the 60 year anniversary of Pong).
The car will be based on the Coupe or Cabriolet versions and only 15 of them will be built. Features include diamond black metallic paint, black leather interior with gray accents, Bi-xenon headlights and the Sport Chrono Plus package. Also unique to the car is special badging on the doors and dashboard, and a new sports exhaust system.
Price for this 1 in 15 beauty? €188,261 including taxes or 247,186 smackers in the US.
I have to say, I’m becoming more and more of a fan of the matching colored wheels. Maybe it’s the new styles that lend themselves better to matching the body paint. When I was playing around with the car builders on Porsche’s site, I kept coming back to the matching colored wheels.
My wife always says “Everything doesn’t need to be matchy matchy” but maybe she’s wrong about that. At least when it comes to Porsches. Course I’m not going to tell her that.
