PORSCHE 911 SPEEDSTER
What is it? A roofless, two-seater 911 GT3-based chariot that can trace it roots back to the 1954 356 Speedster. A tonneau cover provides some dryness in the event of a shower, while the body is borrowed from the Carrera 4 Cab, modified with a carbon-fibre double-bubble rear deck and carbon front wings. The chassis, engine and ’box are from the 911 GT3, so 9,000rpm, 500bhp, RWD and a six-speed manual. Quite the recipe...
Can I buy one?
Be our guest. No price yet, but Porsche will build 1,948 (the original 356 was signed off in 1948) of them, and production is scheduled to begin early next year.
