At the ongoing New York Auto Show, 2019 Porsche 911 Speedster has been introduced. It was seen last year in concept form. Under the hood of 2019 Porsche 911 Speedster lies naturally aspirated 4.0-liter flat-six engine. The engine generates an output of 502hp and 469 Nm of torque at 9000 rpm. The same engine is also used on other Porsche models such as current 911 GT3 and 911 GT3 RS and incorporates individual throttle bodies like the 911 GT3 R race car. 2019 Porsche 911 Speedster will be exclusively available with six-speed manual transmission.
The setup helps the speedster to accelerate from 0-60mph in just 3.8 seconds. The German sports car is fast enough to hit the top speed of 192 mph. Porsche extensively worked on the 911 Speedster to keep it light during the development phase. Hence, carbon fiber components can be found on front luggage compartment lid, front fenders, and rear decklid. The sports car also features Porsche Ceramic Composite Brakes as standard with no air conditioning. Nonetheless, customer can opt for air conditioner with no additional cost and overall weight is tipped at just 1,465kg.
Just like 911 GT3 models, it also uses the same chassis but it consists of specifically-calibrated rear axle steering and new dynamic engine mounts. There is a set of Satin Black 20-inch center lock wheels. The new 911 features a low-cut front windshield and offers best driving experience of current 911. Few unique styling elements consist of low side windows, a manually-operated lightweight fabric top and voluptuous buttresses behind the driver and passenger seats. Order books of the 2019 Porsche 911 Speedster will open on 7th May 2019 and will land in US dealership in late 2019. Porsche Design also unveiled a special timepiece exclusive to Speedster owners.
