The Porsche Company has always thought out of the box. On its 70th anniversary, the Company has gifted itself the Porsche 911 speedster. The car hasn’t been released so far, but there are many speculations about its amazing specs and features.

Price:

The Porsche company has added many new features in this car. This time the Company hasn’t limited itself to the 1948 units. Due to this factor, the price of the car won’t be cheap. According to estimates, the car will cost $275,750, which involves the delivery fee of $1250.

Release Date:

The Company initially presented the car in June last year. However, the “heritage” version won’t come until the second half of 2019. The Porsche Motorsport developed the car in Weissach, in collaboration with the Style Porsche and Porsche Exclusive Manufaktur.

Design:

This new speedster has the wide body of the Carrera 4S Cabriolet. On the other hand, the front and back bumpers are similar to the Sport Classic Carry-overs. However, the thing, which grasps the attention, is the short windscreen and the double-bubble hood cover. The rake of the screen doesn’t change. The wheels of the car contain a center lock. The only problem with Porsche 911 speedster is that it isn’t waterproof.

The speedster has an exhaust system with titanium tailpipes and the drivetrain along with six operated gearboxes. Below the deck of the car’s roof, the car contains a manually fastened fabric roof. This manual rooftop is weight efficient as the automatic roofs are quite heavy. These weight saving techniques are also present inside the car.

Engine:

The engine of the car is the 4.0-liter flat-engine, like the 911 GT3. The motor of the car is 493 bhp and contains manual gears. The car also has a GT3’s wheel-steering system, which greatly improves the speed and agility of the car.

The fuel consumption rate of Porsche 911 speedster is around 13 liter per 100km and emits 290 g of CO2 per km.

Interior:

Porsche has continued its tradition of lightweight internal features, in its latest model. When you look at the inside, you won’t find radio, navigation or air conditioning systems. These things have been eliminated in this latest model.

Inside the car, a two-tone black and Cognac leather are present. The leather bucket has an embossed Porsche crest in the headrest position. The interior trim bits have the GT Metallic Silver color, similar to the exterior of the car. A gold limited edition is also present in between the seats.

Fuel Efficiency and Warranty:

There are claims that the 911 speedster will cover an average of 21.0 miles per gallon. The government regulators have put the estimates of the car at $2,200 per year when the car is driven 15,000 miles. In comparison to other vehicles, you will have to spend $4000 every 5 years. What else do you expect from such a reliable car?

Although the car isn’t that fuel efficient, it is quite safe. Its warranty is  4 years or 80,000 km, whichever comes first. It also has a 12-year long warranty against the rust holes in the body. There is also a 2-year warranty on genuine Porsche parts.

There is also a certified warranty of 2 years or 160,000 km once the original warranty is over. You can claim the warranty at any Porsche partner.

Verdict:

The Porsche 911 is certainly the next big thing in the car world. The main aspect of the car is that it is quite lightweight. It is about 40 pounds lighter as compared to the average cars.

This Porsche model is a deviation from the average cars. So, if you embrace change in life, you should buy the Porsche 911 Speedster.
