A very limited edition watch is now available to those luck few owners of the 2024 Porsche 911S/T. The S/T is the newest, and now the most expensive car, in the Porsche lineup, and derives its name from the original 911S drivetrain sort of meets the then base model 911T, Porsche says, all this to celebrate the 60th anniversary of the legendary 911. Yes, buying the watch means you’ve bought the car, though I’m certain lots of these special chronographs will be trading hands in the secondary market.
From Porsche Design the watch comes in two flavors, Chronograph 1. 911 S/T and the Chronograph 2. 911 S/T Heritage. On the car itself, The Heritage Package is $20,000 alone, but for the $300,000 car, no-one is going to quibble.
Porsche is capping production of the 911S/T at 1963 units, the same year their famous 911 came into existence.
As with every luxury car, options abound with this new car. Using the attached 911S/T configurator, I managed to option mine to $355,000 (See below), due to getting silly with the Paint To Sample Plus option at $43,000. With a good bit of restraint, however, you will probably be a touch over that $300,000 range, putting the S/T into striking range of a base Ferrari 296 GTB. At this price point, Porsche aficionados are going to consider this an inexpensive way into a collectible future classic. Even if you don’t buy the car, the configurator is always fun and makes you think about justifying those options when you go to sell it in the future.
Once again, Porsche offers everything to the car enthusiast. From incredible automobiles to the Porsche lifestyle, millions of justifiably rabid fans are willing to part with serious money to be part of the Stuttgart brand.
