Porsche introduced the 2011 911 Speedster at the 2010 Paris Motor Show. This model gets its inspiration from the 356 Speedster, the first model to have this name. The 911 Speedster will have a limited run with only 356 units to be built. The 911 Speedster has a starting price of €201,682 ($263,667) and will be launched in December.
In comparison with its siblings, the 911 Speedster rides 60 mm closer to the road and is 44 wider at the rear. Its windscreen has a more raked appearance, the sporty-look manual hood has a flat contour, and the soft top comes with a double-bubble hardcover.
The model features special front and rear aprons, as well as new side skirts. The Speedster is powered by the same engine as the newly-introduced 911 GTS.
The 3.8 liter flat six, which produces 408 hp (23 hp more than the Carrera S), is fitted at the rear of the car. This unit is coupled to a seven-speed PDK double clutch gearbox and power is distributed to the rear wheels via a standard differential lock.
Its standard features include Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM) and Porsche Ceramic Composite Brake (PCCB). It is also equipped with an enhanced rollover protection system.
The interior has a black leather finish and some of its exclusive details include decorative designs with checkerboard patterns for the seat center section and special leather side bolsters.
The car is available in a color exclusive to Porsche dubbed “Pure Blue.” The car has contrasting elements that include tinted front lights, black headlight rings, black windscreen contour and others. It can also be ordered in Carrera White.
