this option was slated for the rest of the world, or ROW, so unfortunately, the rest of us missed out on the celebrations. we did get a late invite, however, with the Weissach edition, but that was sorta like coming to the party when all of the cool people left and only the B-list drunkards were about.
probably the most well known characteristic of this edition is Ferry's signature on the headrests on all three cars. the other features, purely cosmetic, set them apart from their stablemates.
for the 928, the option was M406 (928S Anniversary Car '82) painted meteormetallic over a burgundy interior, as was the 911SC option M403 (911SC Anniversary Car '82/50 Year Porsche Construction). 140 928s and 200 911s were christened with this option.
does it really matter? these days, sure it does, to collectors like you and me because they're special cars commemorating a remarkable point in Porsche history. problem is, the prices, save for the 911 versions, don't necessarily reflect their desirability, yet. get them if you can, while you can...their values will only go up from here on in.
