1948, Not only the year that the original Porsche 356 rolled out the factory but also the amount of these new 911 Speedsters that will be manufactured. Porsche used the 911R and the GT3 as the basis for the development of the Porsche 911 speedster which is a good place to start. it is also the last model in 991 series.
Using the glorious 4.0 litre naturally aspirated flat 6 engine nabbed from the GT3, its maximum outputs are 375kw at a sonourous 8400rpm and peak torque of 470nm. These power figures propel the speedster to 100kmh in a mere 4 seconds. Another fantastic inclusion with this 911 is a 6-speed manual gearbox and being a Porsche it should be slick to use.
In terms of creature comforts and interior design its not really much different to other 911s save for some badging. Most of the uniqueness of this car comes from the exterior design, with rear double bubble streamliner convertible top cover giving this Porsche its interesting silhouette. beneath the carbon fibre deck lies a fabric roof which is what I call semi-automatic as it requires some manual user intervention to raise and lower. Wheels are specifically designed for the speedster and are forged centre lock units.
The sporty nature of the Speedster is emphasised by the inclusion of rear axle steering, Porsche Torque Vectoring and Porsche Stability Management and all these systems are known to be well calibrated. The chassis has also been lowered by 25mm further aiding handling. The other standard inclusion of ceramic composite brakes significantly improving brake performance. The Speedster is available to order from Porsche centres around the world.
