2011 Porsche 911 Speedster limited-edition by Porsche Exclusive
Porsche Exclusive, the automaker's in-house customization expert has announced its plans to unveil a new, ‘exclusive' version of the extraordinary Porsche 911 Speedster. The special, rare ride will be manufactured in strictly limited number of 356 examples, paying homage to the first Porsche Speedster – the 356 Speedster.
Scheduled for a public debut at the 2010 Paris Motor Show, the ultra sporty two-seater excels at some significant differences/improvements in comparison with the other members of the 911 lineup. It has 60 millimeter lower and more raked windscreen, double-bubble hardcover for the soft top, and 44 millimeter wider rear.
In the terms of performance, the rear-wheeled beast packs a 3.8-litre flat six powerplant capable of producing the ultimate 408 horsepower (300 kW), while estimating average fuel consumption of 10.3 liters/100 km (27.43 mpg imp). In addition to that, the all-new 2011 Porsche 911 Speedster also benefits from a seven-speed Porsche Doppelkupplungsgetriebe (PDK), a Porsche Active Suspension Management module (PASM), a Porsche Ceramic Composite Brake (PCCB), as well as enhanced rollover protection system.
Inside the cockpit, the limited-edition athletic eye-catcher includes almost all extras available for the 911 series rides. Its highlights counts: hand-finished interior, premium leather upholstery in black shade, adaptive sports seats with checkerboard patterns in the center section, as well as leather side bolsters in exterior color.
Available from December 2010 on the German market, the 911 Speedster will have a price tag of 201,682 Euro, including 19 % VAT.
