Paris Motor Show 2018: Porsche 911 Speedster gets a red colour and a green flag

Paris Motor Show 2018: Porsche 911 Speedster gets a red colour and a green flag

-    The Speedster will be the swansong of the current 991-gen 911.

-    Will be limited to just 1,948 cars.

Porsche resurrected the Speedster moniker but in the concept guise in June as the last hurrah to the current-gen 991 generation. Now, at the Paris Motor Show, the German carmaker has confirmed that the Speedster will go into production but only 1948 cars will be produced.

The production run of 1948 is a nod to the year 1948 when the Porsche 356 “Number 1” got its license. The showcar at the Paris stage was done in a new paint scheme – gorgeous looking Red – and had a few changes compared to the silver concept showcased earlier. Even this red colour, called Guards Red by Porsche, is a tribute to the 1988 911 Speedster. The changes include those 21-inch centre-locking wheels with a cross-spoke design, similar to the one seen on the 911 racecars. Even the four-point headlights get a red illumination and the iconic rear - view mirrors of the Speedster Concept get a contrasting grey-black chrome finish. Even the cabin gets the same treatment as outside. 

Under the skin, the Speedster will use the same GT3 hardware with carbon fibre composite for the characteristic double-bubble trunk. The flat-six naturally aspirated engine will be mated to a six-speed manual gearbox putting out more than 500bhp. 

When it goes on sale next year, Porsche Exclusive department will offer the Heritage Design Packages with the Speedster to make it further special. And judging by the heritage this car is flaunting, all 1948 units must have sold out already.
