The British press is reporting that the Stuttgart based sports car manufacturer is secretly working on the 2012 Porsche 911 Speedster as they want to bring back the 2-seater cabrio which was initially launched in 1989 as the 964 Speedster.
The 2012 Porsche 911 Speedster is expected to be produced in a limited run of only 100 units with an aspect that combines classic and modern design lines, and besides two ‘humps’ that will give it the Speedster signature shape, the roof is expected to be made of semi-permanent fabric.
The 2012 Porsche 911 Speedster will extract power from a 3.8-litre flat-six that is currently being used on the 911 Sport Classic model, but this time output will be increased by 17 bhp to 402 bhp. This means that accelerating from 0 to 62 mph (0 to 100 Km/h) will take 4.5 seconds with a top speed of 190 mph.
The 2012 Porsche 911 Speedster price will be around 200,000 GBP or around 300,000 USD and the same source says that a wide-body version 911 GTS is also expected to be launched sometime in 2011.
