The 991 is riding into the sunset in style with a limited edition 2019 911 Speedster. Staying true to Speedsters of old, the new model features a low-cut windshield and side windows, a manually-operated fabric soft top, and the signature "double bubble" rear. Power will come from the 4.0L flat-six used in the GT3, which will produce 502 hp and 346 lb-ft of torque and to keep the purists happy, it exclusively comes with a six-speed manual transmission. Sorry, no PDK for you paddle shifter supporters out there.
0-60 will happen in 3.8 seconds and top speed has been clocked at 192 mph. Other details include lightweight door panels with storage nets, a standard black leather interior, a carbon fiber hood, optional air conditioning, front fenders and rear decklid, Porsche Ceramic Composite Brakes, Satin Black 20-inch center lock wheels, and a GT3-derived rear axle steering system.
The new 911 Speedster will be available for order on May 7th and deliveries are set for later this year.
