PUMA and Porsche pay tribute to the Porsche 911 Carrera RS 2.7 with a strictly limited, special edition version of the PUMA Suede. The PUMA x Porsche Suede RS 2.7 Limited Edition is the ultimate footwear celebration of this automotive icon.
This year marks the 50th anniversary of the Porsche 911 Carrera RS 2.7. The company has initially built 500 models to homologate the car for Group 4 racing regulations for Special GT cars. Famously debuted at the 1972 Salon de l’Automobile (Paris Motor Show), the Porsche 911 Carrera RS 2.7 impressed the visitors so much that all 500 vehicles were sold just weeks later. The car became a road-approved vehicle for customers who also wanted to take part in racing events. It was the first 911 to be christened “Carrera”. The suffix is a reference to Porsche’s success at the classic Carrera Panamericana Road race in 1954. While the “RS” makes it clear that the car was made for racing and rallying, the “2.7” represents the engine displacement. The most distinctive feature of the fastest German production car of its day (top speed 245 km/h) is the rear spoiler, popularly known as the “ducktail”.
The PUMA Suede is a legendary piece of PUMA history. The sneakers debuted with only 307 pairs to celebrate Olympian Tommie Smith’s competition number.
PUMA has created only 500 pairs of the Puma x Porsche Suede RS 2.7 Limited Edition (per colorway). Featuring the iconic RS 2.7 typeface, being fast and strictly limited, the new sneaker is available in ten different colorways customers of the Porsche 911 Carrera RS 2.7 could choose from. Two of the colorways – Orange/Black and Grand Prix White/Black – are exclusively available in The Netherlands and Japan respectively.
The owners of the PUMA x Porsche Suede RS 2.7 Limited Edition will enjoy free entry to the Porsche Museum until the end of 2022 where they will experience the legendary heritage of Porsche first-hand.
