The new Porsche 911 Speedster
The production version of the new Porsche 911 Speedster goes to the starting line. For the first time in the company’s over 70-year history, the open-top two-seater with flat roofline is based on a GT model from the legendary 911 series. The new Speedster gets to the heart of Porsche's core brand values: purism, lightweight design, efficiency and unfiltered driving pleasure. It combines the high-revving 375 kW (510 PS) four-litre boxer naturally-aspirated engine and the chassis from the 911 GT3 991 series with an athletic appearance characteristic of the forebear of all Porsche sports cars, the 356 “No. 1” Roadster from 1948. And to mark the significance of this year, the new 911 Speedster will be available in a limited edition of 1,948 units. These will be manufactured at the headquarters in Zuffenhausen from mid-2019 - optionally with the Heritage Design package, another innovation from Porsche.
|Purist, lightweight sports car limited to 1,948 units based on the 991 series with two seats and shortened window frame. Weight-saving Speedster soft top, carbon-fibre composite convertible top compartment lid with characteristic double-bubble streamliners. The optionally available Heritage Design package is a modern interpretation of historic Speedster elements from the 1950s and 1960s.|
