New Porsche 911 Speedster goes into production
The 911 Speedster already caused a sensation when it celebrated its world premiere how a concept car in 2018 at the ceremony for the “70 Years of Porsche Sports Cars” anniversary in Zuffenhausen.
Now Porsche is putting into production (limited to 1,948 units) the open-top two seater that combines the aspiration of a puristic, driver-oriented vehicle with motor sports technology suitable for everyday use.
The 911 R and 911 GT3 served as a basis for development of the new 911 Speedster, equipped with a 510 PS four-litre naturally aspirated boxer engine. The six-speed GT transmission is shifted manually.
Visually, the new Speedster establishes a bridge to its own history - to the forebear of all Porsche sports cars, the 356 No. 1 Roadster from 1948. The limited edition of the new 911 Speedster is also reminiscent of this vehicle. Exactly 1,948 units will be manufactured.
Production will start from mid-2019 at the Porsche plant in Zuffenhausen, Germany. Where prices for the 911 Speedster start at 269,274 euros.
