Porsche 911 GUM Red Square Edition

GUM is the name of the most important store chain in Russia being at the same time the biggest department store in Moscow with one of the most impressive buildings in the Red Square. This year the company celebrates 120 years of existence. And taking advantage of the event, Porsche decided to bring to Russia a Porsche 911 GUM Red Square Edition.

The Porsche 911 GUM Red Square Edition is based on the Porsche Carrera 4S Coupe. It seems that in this case the Germans have long forgotten the past animosity between them and the Russians and when it comes to making a name and some money, business is business. As GUM is headquartered in the Red Square, you need just a bit of intuition to guess what the colour theme is. Of course, the limited edition vehicle is covered in a unique Pascha Red paint. The exterior red is combined with an interior luxurious beige. The vehicle rides on a set of 20 inch Carrera stock wheels and it is equipped with a nice sports exhaust system and some Gum Red Square badging.

The Porsche 911 GUM Red Square Edition is powered by a 3.8-liter six-cylinder engine that generates 400 HP (294 kW) and 440 Nm (324 lb-ft) of torque. Because the car comes equipped with the Sport Chrono package, the GUM Red Square Limited Edition can sprint from 0-60 mph in 4.3 seconds or 3.9 seconds with an optional PDK transmission. The limited edition truly reflects the values of the Porsche brand.
