In 1972, Porsche launched the spectacular 911 Carrera RS 2.7, a vehicle that went down in history. To celebrate the 50th anniversary of the launch, the German company has teamed up with its compatriot Puma, marketing a limited edition of the Porsche 911 Carrera RS 2.7 Puma Suede sneakers.
There are ten iterations available, ten different colors to celebrate half a century of one of the Porsche classics.
Although they are no longer online, there are models in the Porsche Museum.
The Porsche 911 Carrera RS 2.7 was a car of which the German company only built 500 copies, in order to homologate it with the Group 4 racing regulations for Special GT vehicles.
It debuted at the Paris Motor Show in 1972, becoming an instant hit: within weeks of the event, all 500 cars were sold.
The model featured a fuel-injected 2.7-liter flat-six engine, generating 207 horsepower and 188 lb-ft. With the optional Sport package, as Motor1 recalls, this reduced weight, reaches 100 kilometers per hour in 6 seconds.
