2019 Porsche 911 Speedster will be very limited!
Porsche, which has its North American headquarters in Atlanta, has announced that the 911 Speedster, first introduced as a concept at their 70th birthday celebration in Paris, will go into production as a limited run model in the first half of 2019.
The model is richly influenced by Porsche history. Only 1,948 models of the open-top coupe will be produced, a number that comes from the year Porsche received its operating license. Its Guards Red paint job references the G-Generation 1988 911 Speedster. The car will be the first Porsche model to be offered with the new Heritage Design Packages, which offer a high degree of model customization.
The 911 Speedster rides on 21-inch center lock wheels with a cross-spoke design that is like what is on 911 RSR and GT3 R models. Tinted daytime running lights take their inspiration from racing as well. Two Talbot-shaped exterior mirrors and a centrally located fuel tank cap are black-chrome and platinum. Its cabin is filled with partially perforated black leather with red highlights on the seat bottoms and armrests.
The 911 Speedster shares all the body components with the 911 Speedster Concept and is based on the 911 Carrera 4 Cabriolet with shortened window frames, lowered cowl top panels, small side windows, and a carbon fiber trunk with a double-bubble cover behind the coupe’s seats. The 911 Speedster comes with a Tonneau cover that is attached via Tenax buttons instead of a soft top. The midengined model also has carbon fiber composite front trunk.
It shares a chassis, exhaust system, and drivetrain with the 911 GT3. Its naturally-aspirated flat-six engine is paired with a six-speed manual transmission and can achieve 500 horsepower.
