Derived from the current GT models, it was developed at the Porsche Motorsport Centre, which is the birth place of the 911 GT2 RS and, most recently, the GT3 RS. The 911 Speedster, based on the 991 range, will be the first car to be offered with the new Heritage Design Packages allowing for even higher personalisation with the Porsche exclusive accessory.
The characteristics of the 911 Speedster include a shorter window frame with a more inclined windscreen and correspondingly shortened side windows giving the sports car an even stockier profile with a very low fly line, which is reminiscent of its predecessors such as the Porsche 356 1500 Speedster. A special rear cover made of carbon fibre connects behind the front seats, covering a roll-over protection structure and featuring the classic ‘double bubble’, a traditional element of this sports car design that has been present since the 911 Speedster from 1988. The wide B-pillars and the rear are decorated with milled, gold plated Speedster lettering.
