This Gorgeous Porsche 911 Speedster Is One Of Just 1,948 Ever Produced
A 2019 Porsche 911 Speedster, one of just 1,948 examples produced, recently sold for $412,500 at Mecum Auctions’ Indy sales event.
Every Porsche to wear the name ‘Speedster’ nameplate is special and it is no different with the 991.2-based model. This example is number 1,371 built and is finished in a non-metallic shade of Gray complete with Porsche stripes along the sides.
The interior of this 911 Speedster is particularly special. The owner configured the cabin through Porsche’s Zonderwunsche custom tailoring program and had it equipped with the Extended Deviated Stitching interior package with upholstery stitched in a deviated thread to the seats, headrest logo, dashboard, doors, armrest, steering wheel, steering column casing, center console, and manual gear shifter. The sports car also features 18-way heated adaptive sport seats with backrest shells finished in leather.
The car also comes fully loaded with features such as a rearview camera, heated power mirrors, LED headlights, and Satin Platinum wheels wrapped in Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires. The car was also sold with a matching duffle bag.
The 911 Speedster was the final iteration of the beloved 991.2-generation car. It sports the same 4.0-liter naturally-aspirated flat-six as the GT3, pumping out 503 hp at 8,400 rpm and 347 lb-ft (470 Nm) of torque at 6,250 rpm. Coupled with this rev-happy engine is a standard six-speed manual transmission. A titanium exhaust system is also featured.
When it was introduced, the 2019 911 Speedster was available for $275,750 but as the auction price of this example proves, enthusiasts are clearly happy to spend much more than that to get their hands on the car nowadays.
