The German car maker has revealed photos and details with the limited edition Porsche 911 Speedster which will be on display at the 2010 Paris Motor Show.
Only 356 exemplars Porsche 911 Speedster will get assembled, and some of the features that distinguish it from the rest of the 911 models include a more raked windscreen, the ride has is now 60 mm lower, a sporty new look for the manual hood, and the double-bubble hardcover for the soft top.
The Porsche 911 Speedster extracts power from a 3.8-litre flat-six engine producing 408 HP (300 kW), which spins the rear wheels via Porsche’s 7-speed Doppelkupplungsgetriebe (PDK) transmission. Fuel consumption figures indicate that the Porsche 911 Speedster needs 10.3 -litres to cover 100 Km, (27.43 mpg imp , NEDC), which makes it as efficient as the 911 Carrera S Cabrio.
Some of the standard features on the Porsche 911 Speedster include a differential lock, Porsche’s Active Suspension Management (PASM), Ceramic Composite Brakes (PCCB) and rollover protection.
The Porsche 911 Speedster price starts at 201,682 Euro including tax, and market launch will start from December 2010. 
Porsche press release :
Stuttgart. Very low-slung, very sporty, and very
rare: The Dr. Ing. h.c. F. Porsche AG, Stuttgart, launches a small
edition of a new 911 Speedster. Paying homage to the first Porsche model
that bore the name Speedster – the 356 Speedster –, the production run
for the new model is limited to 356 cars. The two-seater is
significantly different from the other members of the 911 family. In the
best tradition, the 60 millimetre lower, more raked windscreen, the
flat contour of the sporty-look manual hood, and the characteristic
double-bubble hardcover for the soft top define the striking profile of
the new 911 Speedster. This makes the body of this rear-wheel drive with
its 44 millimetre wider rear stand out even more. The new Porsche 911
Speedster will celebrate its world premiere at the Paris Motor Show in
early October.
The new 911 Speedster combines the classic
features of this type of Porsche sports car with further improved
performance of the current 911 generation: The 3.8-litre flat six
delivers 408 hp (300 kW), 23 hp more in comparison with the 911 Carrera
S. With its average consumption of 10.3 litres/100 km (27.43 mpg imp)
(NEDC), the new Speedster is no less efficient than the 911 Carrera S
Cabriolet without Powerkit – an effect of Porsche Intelligent
Performance. The seven-speed Porsche Doppelkupplungsgetriebe (PDK) is in
charge of transmitting power to the rear axle fitted with a standard
differential lock. Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM) and
Porsche Ceramic Composite Brake (PCCB) are standard, too. Add to that
exemplary protection for driver and passengers in the new 911 Speedster.
Especially for this model, the Porsche engineers further improved the
rollover protection system which is standard in all open-top Porsche
The conception of the current Speedster comes from Porsche
Exclusive – the company-owned "enhancer" specialising in
individualisation of Porsche cars and small series. The 911 Speedster
heralds the 25th anniversary of Porsche Exclusive which will be
celebrated in 2011, and once again, demonstrates the small-series
competence of Porsche Exclusive after the big success of the 911 Sport
Living up to the Porsche Exclusive standard, the 911
Speedster features almost all optional equipment of the 911 series and
its appeal also comes from its meticulously hand-finished interior in
black smooth-finish leather with numerous exterior colour painted
details exclusive to the Speedster. These include decorative designs
with checkerboard patterns in the seat centre section of the adaptive
sports seats reminiscent of a chequered flag, and the leather side
bolsters in the exterior colour.
The sporty flavour is further
enhanced by the exterior colour “Pure Blue” that has been developed
exclusively for the Speedster, providing an intriguing contrast with the
tinted front lights, black headlight rings, black windscreen surround
and other black decorative designs. Upon request, the Speedster is
available in Carrara White, at no extra cost. It also features a special
front apron, specific sideskirts and a distinct rear apron.
1953, the Speedster series was launched with a puristic sports car based
on the Porsche 356, which had two sports bucket seats, doors with
slide-in plastic side windows, and a shortened, elegantly curved
windscreen. In 1988, the Speedster based on the 911 Carrera celebrated
its revival with an added feature. For the first time, the hood
compartment lid had the characteristic double bubbles. In 1993/1994, the
next evolutionary stage of the 911 Carrera was ushered in with yet
another Speedster.
In Germany, the 911 Speedster including
country-specific equipment and 19 % VAT is priced at Euro 201,682 and
will be launched in December 2010.
