Porsche AG’s Vice President of Communications, Sustainability and Policy, Dr Sebastian Rudolph, said that in bringing the character of Sally to life, they want to help and support those in need, just like the movie character.

“Vehicles need a face and a story. And Pixar’s movie Cars did just that, bringing them to life on the big screen. The story conveys values ​​such as friendship, love and mutual support – and in the middle of it all is a Porsche: ‘Sally Carrera’. Together with Pixar, we’ve brought Sally’s spirit to life in a new way, not onscreen, but offscreen. With this unique and legal 911, the Sally Special, which we are auctioning for charity, we want to help people who are in urgent need of support, very much in the spirit of the film character.

About the Porsche 911 Sally Special

Produced in Zuffenhausen, the project is as special as it gets, after all there will only be one real unit. Boris Apenbrink, Head of Vehicles at Porsche Exclusive Manufaktur, explains:

“The 911 Sally Special is based on the fastest and most agile variant in the 911 Carrera model range, the 911 Carrera GTS. The car is fitted with a manual gearbox, tapping into Sally Carrera’s passion for driving. The customization elements are detailed and extensive. 911 Sally Special was one of the most intense, emotional and detailed projects our team has worked on. An example is that the car is painted Sally Blue Metallic, a custom paint that was hand applied specifically for this project. We also thought of Sally’s tattoo, of course. Implementation was a very particular challenge.
