Product Overview

Porsche 911 Speedster 991 is a limited production speedster based on the GT3 in production in 2019. It was powered by a modified flat-6 engine from the 991 GT3 that displaced 4.0 liters.
Essentially, the 911 Speedster is the open-top variant of the 991 GT3. It has the iconic speedster body style and offers superb handling characteristics.
With a 13.8L/100km (17.0mpg) fuel "dis-economy", owners have to be prepared to pay for their "smiles-per-mile". Utility-minded owners will likely need to keep an alternative for hauling things around, as the tiny cargo space is almost surely insufficient.

The Porsche 991 Speedster is a limited-edition version of the 997 Speedster. It is the brainchild of Andreas Preuninger, who developed an infatuation with the 1987 G-Series Speedster as a young man. Each Speedster will cost £211,599, rising to £226,000 if you option the Heritage Design Pack.

Pros
  • Gorgeous looks

All 1,948 examples have already been sold. Some speculating chancers are already trying to shift pre-loved ones for seven figure sums. The next-generation cars will be cleaner, quicker and, hopefully, just as good to drive. But a little something - a crucial, soulful something - will be missing.

Pros
  • Unbelievably fun to drive

The Speedster is based on the previous 991-generation of Porsche's famous sports car. It was built in limited numbers as a 70th birthday present to itself. The UK allocation of the 1,948 global production run has already been sold. There's currently one for sale privately for £1million.

Reviewers from cnet have found the following***:
There are some lovely visual details on the Speedster, particularly if you opt for the Heritage Pack. For reasons of practicality, a couple of other details from the two concept cars have also been quietly ditched. The sound of the naturally aspirated six-cylinder engine is glorious, but not as all-encompassing as you might imagine.

Pros
  • Gorgeous interior
  • Phenomenal performance
  • Terrific engine
Cons
  • No manual transmission
  • Slightly heavier than a standard GT3
