The word ‘Speedster’ has been synonymous with Porsche since the mid 1950’s. The original 356 variant was not just aesthetically beautiful but lightweight. The variants that have worn the ‘Speedster’ badge since have been more about the styling than the performance, until the latest 991, like the model we are offering here.
Carbon fibre wings and bonnet were used from the 911R and the rear apron from the GT3 Touring. Yet perhaps the biggest and best news is the engine, which is a development of the naturally aspirated 4.0-litre flat six that has become a hallmark of the GT3 experience. Fuel injectors operating at higher pressure have helped raise the power from 493bhp to 503bhp. Four-wheel steering has been retuned to compensate for the high-speed stability lost by removing the GT3’s enormous rear wing, but overall the mechanical package is practically identical. To underscore Porsche’s intent, all 991 Speedsters are six-speed manual!
This particular example is a 1 owner, UK supplied example that benefits from a very high specification, which includes; non-standard paint finish, interior leather trim, full bucket seats, interior trim package which includes decorative stitching and embroidery in contrasting colour, Silver Grey seat belts, steering wheel rim with top centre marking in red, Chrono package, Bose Surround Sound-System, Digital radio, Porsche Communication Management (PCM) with online navigation, two-zone automatic climate control, front axle lift system, reversing camera, LED headlamps in black including Porsche dynamic light system (PDLS), headlight cleaning system covers painted, Sport design mirror with carbon upper section, window triangle trims in carbon, side skirts painted, 20′ Speedster wheels finished in satin black and Porsche vehicle tracking system (VTS).
In addition, the car was ordered new with one of the Porsche Design 911 Speedster Chronograph limited edition watches, which is unused and still accompanies the car today. It’s one of only 1948 pieces ever to be produced and complete in its presentation box with its Porsche Design official papers. The car is also complete with its original handbooks including the service/warranty booklet, leather wallet, spare key, locking wheel nut, warning triangle, tyre inflation kit, car cover, history file and is presented in absolutely as new condition throughout.
