Porsche is marking 70 years since the first two Porsche 356 sportscars arrived in Australia with the 911 GT3 70 Years Porsche Australia Edition.

14 Dec 2021 | International News : Australia

Porsche has revealed a new 911 GT3 70 Years Porsche Australia Edition at a gala event at the South Melbourne Town Hall, Australia.

The limited edition model marks the 70th anniversary since Australian businessman Norman Hamilton introduced the first two Porsche 356 sportscars in Australia.

The limited edition car premiered sporting a Fish Silver Grey Metallic, a modern interpretation of one of the colours on the first two Porsches in the country
This special commemorative model is based on the new 911 GT3 with Touring Package, and is the first time that Porsche has based a market-specific edition on a 911 GT product, and the first time a special edition has been created by Porsche for the Australian market.

Designed in collaboration with experts from the Style Porsche design team, the Porsche Exclusive Manufaktur customisation department and Porsche Cars Australia, the special edition boasts various unique exterior and interior design features to celebrate this year’s significant milestone.

Of note is the exterior paint colour of the car at the event. Finished in Fish Silver Grey Metallic, the colour is a modern interpretation of 'Fish Silver Grey', the colour of one of the first two Porsche 356 imported into Australia back in 1951.

Also on display at the event was the all-electric Taycan, joined by other notable Porsche models, including the new Macan, which is making its national introduction to the Australian media this week. Among the various classic Porsche cars on display were models that have had an impact in the Australian market in every decade since the 1950s, from the 356 to the 928 to the current-day 911.
