Porsche brings Sally Carrera from the classic Pixar film Cars to life by building a one-of-a-kind 911 that the company appropriately calls the Sally Special. It debuts during this year’s Monterey Car Week.
To create the Sally Special, Porsche enlisted the help of members of the original Cars creative team. The goal was to take Sally Carrera and apply the look of the character to a modern, road-going 911.
In the film, Sally Carrera’s design was inspired by a 2002 911. This unique piece uses the current 911 Carrera GTS as its starting point. Power comes from a twin-turbocharged 3.0-liter flat-six making 473 horsepower (353 kilowatts) and 420 pound-feet (569 Newton-meters) of torque, and the Sally Special has a seven-speed manual gearbox. speeds.
The creation process included creating the unique Sally Blue Metallic color for the car. It’s the closest you’ll get to Sally Carrera’s shadow in the real world. When the spoiler is rolled down, the vehicle even shows off the character’s striped tattoo.
The Sally Special rides on a unique set of Turbo wheels like you’d find on a 996-generation 911. In this case, they measure 20 inches at the front and 21 inches at the rear.
Inside, there are even more elements in Sally Blue Metallic. The color appears on the dash, center console, and door trim. The company uses special fabric upholstery with a checkered pattern and blue highlights for parts of the seats and door panels. Chalk colored leather offers a contrast to this material.
If you look closely, there are many small Easter eggs. For example, a badge on the B-pillar displays the signature of Sally Carrera. The Cars logo appears on the tire valve stem caps, door panels and the side of the seats. The drive mode selector knob next to the steering wheel now says “Kachow Mode!”. A small drawing of Sally Carrera is on the passenger side of the dash.
Porsche will auction the Sally Special for charity. The buyer will get a matching watch, a car cover and a second set of wheels. Additionally, it will come with a picture book by Cars production designer Bob Pauley.
