Porsche 911 Speedster (2019): it rolls!


The Porsche 911 Type 991, introduced at the end of 2011, continues to decline. With the latest GT2 RS 700 PS, GT3 RS 520 PS or 935 "Mobydick" not approved for road use, the 911 2019 will draw an ultimate version: the 911 Speedster, which is likely to be launched in the spring … is the latest generation Type 992 (Read our preliminary test)!

As a reminder: The 911 Speedster is a limited edition of 1948 copies, the mechanics of the radical GT3 (atmospheric flat-6 of at least 500 hp) under a findable body, which commemorates the line of the Porsche Speedster, born in 1948, with 356 with the same name. Today, new photos published by a user give some details about the final model.

Compared to the first two concept cars before the 911 Speedster (gray for 70 years in June 2018, then red at the Paris 2018 World), the standard version seems to have lost two distinctive elements: shell-shaped mirrors and the fuel cap in the center of the bonnet. Fortunately, the rigid double barrel and the center exhaust remain in the GT3 style.

These photos (and the video above, taken by Swedish colleagues at the Nürburgring) finally add more information, such as the presence of a motorized fin, a mechanical box and a special hood, manually and logically different from a classic 911 Cabriolet. Now the performance, the performance … and the price of this future collector remains to be known. Consequences!
