A full 16 years after resurrecting the Speedster nameplate for 1993-94, Porsche announced the return of the now-911-based two-seat roadster in 2011. In tribute to the original Speedster based on the 356, Porsche limited production to 356 cars, only 100 of which were allotted to the U.S. market. Like its predecessors, the Speedster stood apart with its cut-down, steeply raked windscreen and double hump behind the cockpit. Even with the manually operated top in place, there is no mistaking the low-profile silhouette, which comes in almost 2.5" lower than the standard cabriolet. The Speedster's drivetrain is headlined by the GTS model's water-cooled 3.8-liter 405hp direct-injection flat-6 engine, which, unlike the GTS, was available only with Porsche's paddle-shift PDK 7-speed dual-clutch transmission. This example has special paint and a custom interior sporting embroidered Speedster headrest logos and body-color leather dash and door-handle trim. Number 49 of 356, this stunning 911 Speedster demonstrates the model's abundance of standard features: aluminum doors and tonneau cover, Carrara White paint with black accents, black Fuchs-style wheels and a black-and-white interior, Porsche Active suspension management and carbon-ceramic disc brakes; the Sport Chrono package complete with dash-mounted stop watch; Bose CD/DVD entertainment system with navigation and Bluetooth connectivity. Other features include power windows, seats and locks, climate control, cruise control and steering wheel-mounted sound system and communication controls. Car has 1,523 actual miles.
