It's back and, for the first time, available in America. Porsche has revived the timeless 911 Sport Classic with a design that hearkens back to the sports car's original design, though it's been subtly updated for contemporary tastes.

The 2023 Porsche 911 Sport Classic is such a big deal that images of it were actually leaked ahead of press embargo by a couple auto-centric publications.

And you can see what all the hype's about: limited to a mere 1,250 units worldwide — 1,000 more than the previous edition in 2010 — the new 911 Sport Classic is fresh, yet familiar. Dressed in shades of Sport Grey across the body and stripes, Porsche's instant-classic Classic now boasts the ducktail rear spoiler that previous iterations ditched, plus rear-wheel drive for the manual transmission 3.7-liter twin-turbo flat-six.

These visual cues, which clearly channel some of flavor from the OG Porsche 911 Turbo (known by fans as the "Widowmaker" because of its dangerously light chassis and speedy kick), speak to Porsche's aims in expanding (and updating) its exclusive heritage offering, following 2020's 911 Targa 4S Heritage Design Edition.

Classic meets contemporary throughout, whether it's on the carbon-fiber-reinforced plastic hood and double-bubble roof or the retro white lollipop and numerical branding painted on the exterior of the car — customers can customize the number to their liking, selecting anything between 1 and 99.

Inside, luxurious flourishes abound, from the Pepita-patterned seats to the Sport Chrono clock set into the dash. 2023 911 Sport Classic buyers may also purchase a unique Porsche Design Chronograph 911 Sport Classic watch to match, if they wish, or opt for a leather wallet finished to match the seats.

Launching in the United States "as part of the 2023 model year," according to Porsche, expect top-tier dealers to be receiving the new 911 Sport Classic by the end of 2022.

The price is still hush-hush but it's an easy six figures. Considering that the 2010 edition is only available on the secondhand market for upwards of $400k nowadays (and that's on the low end), that's not too shabby.
