Following its impressive debut at New York Auto Show, Porsche has released pricing details along with gallery and video of new 911 Speedster. 2019 911 Speedster is designed to pay tribute to 991 and draws inspiration from 356 Speedster but has modern powertrain sourced from 911 GT3. Power in the 2019 Porsche 911 Speedster is derived from naturally aspirated 4.0-liter six-cylinder engine. The engine offers an impressive 503hp and 470Nm of torque. It is paired with six-speed manual transmission which sends power to the rear wheels via a mechanical locking rear differential. The setup helps the car to accelerate from 0-62mph in 4.0 seconds before hitting the top speed of 193mph.
There is more to 2019 Porsche 911 Speedster than just performance as it features a unique design as it incorporates several components from other models. Some of the noticeable features include a front apron (comes from 911 GT3), a rear apron and spoiler (911 GT3 Touring), and carbon fiber wings (from 911 R). Additionally, there is also carbon fiber hood, a unique front spoiler and Sport Design mirrors that replace the Talbot mirrors from the 911 Speedster concept. It is equipped with a shorter windscreen and central locking 20-inch wheels that is backed by ceramic composite brakes. One of the unique features in 2019 Porsche 911 Speedster is the double-bubble rear lid which is made from a single piece of carbon-fiber reinforced plastic. It is dubbed as “largest and most complex component” ever used on a road-going model.
