2011 Porsche 911 Speedster is a hybrid of its ancestors


The 2011 Porsche 911 Speedster is a hybrid of its ancestors, the 356 Speedsters, and the current generation of Speedsters. Designed to celebrate the 25th anniversary of Porsche Exclusive, the convertible features an
aerodynamic body kit, black accents, and tinted headlights.

Adopting the classic two-seater, the raked windscreen, the double-bubble hardcover and the flat contour of the hood, together with the superior driving performance of its contemporaries, are the striking features of the 911 Speedster.


Significantly different from other members of the 911 family, this two-seat roadster features a 2.36" (60 millimeter) lower, more raked windscreen and the characteristic speedster double-bubble hardcover for the manual soft top. Helping to define the striking profile of the new 2011 Porsche 911 Speedster, the 1.73" (44 millimeter) wide-body from the AWD 911 models makes the rear-wheel-drive only Speedster stand out even more.


The new Speedster has a 3.8 liter flat-6 engine that carries an additional 23 hp, totaling to 408 hp. The 2011 Porsche Speedster reaches 0-60 MPH in 4.2 seconds with Sport Chrono Plus and has a top-track speed of 190 mph (305 km/h) - all courtesy of Porsche Intelligent Performance. Inside, the cabin is outfitted with black leather upholstery, adaptive sports seats, and color-coordinated trim.


Additional protection gears are included for the safety of the drivers and passengers and these are the seven-speed Porsche Doppelkupplungsgetriebe (PDK), Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM) and Porsche Ceramic Composite Brake (PCCB).

Porsche Exclusive, a company enhancer that focuses on the individualization of Porsche cars, initiates the idea of the Speedster hybrid. Inside, the cabin is outfitted with black leather upholstery, adaptive sports seats, and color-coordinated trim.


The sporty flavor is further enhanced by the exterior color "Pure Blue", providing an intriguing contrast with the tinted front lights, black headlight rings, black windscreen surround and other black decorative designs. The Porsche 911 Speedster is available in Carrara White, at no extra cost. It also features a special front apron, specific sideskirts and a distinct rear apron.

In the U.S., the Porsche 911 Carrera Speedster will be available beginning in early 2011, MSRP will be $204,000.
