Exterior design
Exterior design
Clearly a 911. And then again not. The Speedster is probably the most individual 911 concept that you will see on the world’s roads. And definitely one of the most beautiful.
There is no doubt that its proportions, lines and design language are unmistakable. Its CFRP wings are muscular and its headlights are round – as is typical of the 911. The front apron with its large cooling air intakes and black spoiler lip is also typical – of the 911 GT models. As is the contouring of the front lid made of carbon. No wonder, because the design and wide body are based on the 911 GT3.
But things get even more fascinating. The windscreen is extremely low, making the car even flatter, more compact and more athletic. This is a long tradition with the Speedster. For which there are three very good reasons: proximity to the road, constant flirting with the elements and unadulterated sporty driving.
The 20-inch forged alloy wheels with central locking and Porsche Crest reveal the proximity to the race track. And allow a clear view of the standard Porsche Ceramic Composite Brake (PCCB). ‘The Speedster’ is essentially a Porsche GT model. With an exceptional design.
As well as a flatter silhouette, the rear view also reveals a second unmistakable feature of the Speedster: its dynamic streamliners. They are located on the rear lid which is made of carbon and moulded from a single component, making it extremely rigid.
The streamliners are undoubtedly the distinguishing feature of every 911 Speedster. With their aerodynamic shape, they visually extend the headrests towards the rear of the car. And in the new 911 Speedster, they are even longer and more contoured than ever before, thus removing the slight hunchback that was given to the broadly shaped rear of earlier days.
Sporty features of the new 911 Speedster: the athletic rear, the sports exhaust system with its two central tailpipes and the lightweight rear aprons with additional air outlets.
The new 911 Speedster: our contribution to embellishing the roads. And an anthem to these. A very special 911.
Interior design
Interior design
Minimalist. Puristic. Black. And with many elements made of leather. The sporty interior of the new 911 Speedster is devoted to driving. Stylish driving, of course.
The sports steering wheel is classic black, the steering wheel rim made of leather and the top centre marking an indication of its motorsport heritage. The instruments are reminiscent of the 1960s Porsche design, when the needle was white and both the numbers and increment markings were green. Elegant: the ‘Speedster’ logo in silver colour on the passenger trim strips.
The plaque featuring the anniversary logo between the seats reflects the fact that the new 911 Speedster is strictly limited to 1,948 units. It is no coincidence that this number is also reminiscent of the year the first sports car bearing the name Porsche was produced.
Interior features in carbon-weave finish epitomise the bold, sporty character, such as the door sill guards and dashboard trim strips featuring the ‘Speedster’ logo. The door pull loops are in keeping with the lightweight design. Entirely in the style of a Porsche GT model. The same applies to the shortened gear lever with black leather grip.
Despite their sporty design, the full bucket seats made of carbon-fibre reinforced plastic (CFRP) have electric seat height adjustment, are pleasantly comfortable and provide maximum lateral support – on winding coastal roads, for example. The seat bolsters, perforated seat centres and headrests with embroidered ‘Speedster’ logo in black are made of smooth-finish black leather. The characteristic shape of the seats and recesses in the seat centres are inspired by the design of the 918 Spyder.
Automatic climate control? No need for this in a car with so much free spirit – and therefore not fitted as standard, but available as an option at no extra cost. Also available as an option at no extra cost is Porsche Communication Management (PCM) with online navigation, Sound Package Plus and Connect Plus module including Apple® CarPlay. In short: you decide how puristic you want your drive to be.
There is not much to say about the rear seats. Because they are simply not available in this 911. A Speedster, with the DNA of a Porsche GT.
Heritage Design Package
Heritage Design Package
We are extremely committed to our sporting heritage. And honour this with the optionally available Heritage Design Package for the new 911 Speedster. The many high-quality details and extraordinary overall package also show how much pleasure we take from this commitment. Because the Heritage Design Package has been devised by Porsche Designers and implemented with superb craftsmanship in the Porsche Exclusive Manufaktur. With a puristic design, it stylishly guides the driver to the roots of the brand.
A traditional, sporty finish in GT Silver Metallic forms the basis of the Heritage Design Package. A reminder of the pioneering days of motorsport, when most race cars competing at the world’s race tracks still bore this colour.
With its nostalgic design, the partially white front section is reminiscent of the race versions of the 356. The so-called ‘lollipop’ on the doors and front lid is iconic, and also provides an exclusive opportunity to turn the 911 Speedster into your dream sports car: with either the number ‘48’ – reflecting the year that Porsche was founded – or your personal start number. The historic ‘PORSCHE’ logo on the side of the car rounds off the image. The Porsche Ceramic Composite Brake (PCCB) calipers are exclusively painted in black (high-gloss) for this optional package and feature a white ‘PORSCHE’ logo.
Gold-coloured ‘Speedster’ logos at the rear and on the sides of the streamliners complete the harmonious overall concept. Trimmed in the historic design: the Porsche Crest on the front lid and the central locking on the wheels which are painted in satin platinum.
The indoor car cover in a vehicle-specific design with goldcoloured edge ensures that the historic charm of the Heritage Design Package of your 911 Speedster will always be well preserved.
The Heritage Design Package for the 911 Speedster is the premier of a series of new optional packages from Porsche Exclusive Manufaktur. We will stylishly transport our sports car tradition into the future for upcoming models, with an authentic reference to Porsche history and great attention to detail.
In the interior, elements made of high-quality natural Cognac leather complement the overall image of the two-tone leather interior. For example, the full bucket seats are finished entirely in Cognac leather, and the historic Porsche Crest is embossed on the headrests. The seat backrests are painted in GT Silver Metallic.
The ‘Porsche Exclusive Manufaktur’ embossed on the lid of the centre console storage compartment is testimony to the refinement of this exclusive car. An exciting contrast: the interior package painted in GT Silver Metallic. A real gem: the raised, gold-coloured ‘Speedster’ logo on the dashboard trim strips.
The anniversary logo on the limited edition plaque between the seats is also in a gold colour, while the shift pattern on the gear lever is finished in Cognac. As is the sporty top centre marking on the steering wheel that is otherwise entirely finished in black. It also bears the historic Porsche Crest, as does the vehicle key painted in the exterior colour. The matching key pouch in Cognac leather is adorned with the ‘Speedster’ logo – as are the door sill guards which are made from stainless steel with a black anodised finish. Obsessed with detail? We prefer to say: with great attention to detail.
The long, chequered history of the Speedster has a clear physical core: its engine deep in the rear. In the new 911 Speedster, this is a high-performance 4.0-litre naturally aspirated, horizontally opposed engine. For a high-revving concept that reaches 9,000rpm. Maximum torque is 470Nm. And output a whopping 375kW (510PS).
The acceleration and speed values are also extraordinary. Because the new 911 Speedster sprints from 0 to 100km/h in just 4.0 secs, thanks to its 6-speed GT sports manual transmission. Before reaching a top speed of over 300km/h. Who does it take after? The 911 GT3 – and its even more powerful brother, the 911 GT3 RS.
Extremely robust and high-performing, the RS engine was originally based on that of the 911 GT3 Cup. The oil supply principle also originates from motorsport and uses a dry sump and separate engine oil tank, fully variable oil pressure pump and highly efficient supply of the bearings via the crankshaft.
The four-valve technology with cam followers and rigid valve control has also been fully tested on the race track. The engine block and cylinder heads are made of aluminium, and the titanium piston rods are forged. Thanks to VarioCam, the camshaft adjustment is finely tuned according to engine speed and load. Six individual throttle valves ensure optimum air supply to every cylinder.
A stereo lambda control circuit regulates the exhaust gas composition and monitors pollutant conversion in the catalytic converters. To reduce particulate emissions, the 911 Speedster is fitted with a particulate filter. The necessary regeneration process of the particulate filter runs independently and unnoticed. The extra weight of the sports exhaust system due to the additional particulate filter is more than offset by a newly developed lightweight construction concept.
The result of all these measures: direct responsiveness and motorsport-typical vehicle performance. With the unparalleled soundtrack of a thoroughbred naturally aspirated engine. Absolutely beautiful. And amazingly fast.
Chassis and Chrono Package
Chassis and Chrono Package
Close to the road, even closer to motorsport: this is the tuning philosophy of the new 911 Speedster. Its chassis is derived from the 911 GT3. It is designed specifically for motorsport and holds the road as firmly as a GT vehicle. All the suspension management systems have also been tuned to the 911 Speedster.
Rear-axle steering: the standard rear-axle steering combines performance and everyday driveability with sporty tuning. At low speeds, the system steers the rear wheels in the opposite direction to that of the front wheels. This leads to a virtual shortening of the wheelbase. Narrow curves can be rounded more dynamically. And parking is noticeably easier. At high speeds, the system steers the rear wheels in the same direction as that of the front wheels. The virtual extension of the wheelbase improves stability and agility, especially at high speeds.
Dynamic engine mounts: this electronically regulated system minimises perceptible oscillations and the vibration of the entire drivetrain, in particular the engine, so that the benefits of a hard and a soft engine mounting arrangement can be used. The handling is noticeably harder and more stable during load changes and in fast corners. In addition, the dynamic engine mounts reduce the vertical vibrations of the engine when accelerating under full load. The results are greater and more uniform drive force at the rear axle, increased traction and faster acceleration. Whenever a less assertive driving style is adopted, the dynamic engine mounts soften to provide a heightened level of comfort.
Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM, approximately 25mm lower than the 911 Carrera): this electronic adjustment of the damping control system actively and continuously adjusts the damping force on each wheel, based on current road conditions and driving style. You can select two sporty programmes at the touch of a button. Normal mode is designed for sporty driving on public roads. Sport mode is specially tuned for maximum lateral acceleration and optimum traction on totally flat surfaces – in case you fancy a lap of the race track.
Porsche Stability Management (PSM): PSM is an automatic control system for maintaining stability at the limits of dynamic driving performance. The system can be completely switched off in two stages. For intentionally sporty handling.
Porsche Torque Vectoring (PTV): this system operates in conjunction with a mechanical rear differential lock. For increased traction and improved lateral dynamics, as well as enhanced stability when cornering under load change conditions and when changing lanes.
Wheels and tyres: the car is fitted with forged 20-inch alloy wheels in satin black with central locking. Road-approved sports tyres ensure the necessary grip.*
Chrono Package: in addition to the analogue and digital stopwatch on the dashboard, the optional Chrono Package also allows you to display, save and evaluate times for your favourite routes or commute. Any travelled distances can be recorded and benchmark times defined.
Porsche Communication Management (PCM) is available as an option at no extra cost and features an enhanced performance indicator. This displays the current engine output and torque in the instrument cluster.

* The low tread depth leads to an increased risk of aquaplaning on wet roads.

Porsche Ceramic Composite Brake (PCCB)
Porsche Ceramic Composite Brake (PCCB)
We have nothing against nostalgia, but when it comes to active safety, we rely on modern, motorsport-tested technology: with the cross-drilled ceramic brake discs of the Porsche Ceramic Composite Brake (PCCB). They have a diameter of 410mm at the front and 390mm at the rear – for even more formidable braking performance. They are standard on the new 911 Speedster.
The use of six-piston yellow (black in the Heritage Design Package) aluminium monobloc fixed calipers on the front and four-piston aluminium monobloc fixed calipers on the rear – provides extremely high and above all consistent braking forces.
PCCB enables shorter braking distances in even the toughest road and race conditions. And improves safety under high-speed braking, thanks to its excellent fade resistance.
The crucial advantage of PCCB is the extremely low weight of the ceramic brake discs, which are approximately 50% lighter than cast-iron discs of a similar design and size. The result of this reduction in unsprung, rotatory masses is better roadholding and increased comfort, particularly on uneven roads, as well as greater agility and a further improvement in handling.
Porsche Design Chronograph Heritage Design
Porsche Design Chronograph Heritage Design
One tradition that we particularly uphold: to be as accurate as possible when it comes to timing. With every second. And with seven decades of Porsche history. We are again returning to our origins and writing a new chapter of our contemporary history. With the 911 Speedster with Heritage Design Package and matching Chronograph 911 Speedster in a heritage design. A watch that not only tells the time, but also 70 years of Porsche history.
The case is made of lightweight titanium. The dial resembles the round instruments in the 911 Speedster: green numbers and increments, along with white needles. The ‘70’ on the tachymeter scale is also green, as were the numbers on the rev counter of the Porsche 356 in 1948. Elegant gold details adorn the dial: the Porsche Design logo and ‘Speedster’ logo.
The winding rotor is designed in the style of the wheel of the 911 Speedster. The paint colour: satin platinum or silvercoloured. The rotor features central locking, bearing the historic Porsche Crest.
The strap is made of the same high-quality leather and thread used to make the seats of the 911 Speedster. The leather strap can easily be changed using the selfchanging system. The Heritage Design Edition timepiece is powered by the first Porsche Design Manufaktur calibre, the Werk 01.200, and this exclusive technology guarantees optimum performance.
The Porsche Design Chronograph 911 Speedster in a heritage design and the Porsche Design Chronograph 911 Speedster are also strictly limited to 1,948 units, just like the 911 Speedster.
Porsche Design Chronograph 911 Speedster
Porsche Design Chronograph 911 Speedster
You can recount both contemporary history and Porsche history: with the 911 Speedster and the Chronograph 911 Speedster. Because both have been built according to the principles of a Porsche: with intensive development work, a lengthy testing programme and a great deal of attention to detail. In short: a tribute to every single second of Porsche history.
The watch’s ‘ignition lock’ is a winding rotor painted in black, modelled on the 911 Speedster wheel. In a nutshell: the winding motion is created by the sequentially distributed tungsten alloy. The rotor is authentically fastened by a central shutter featuring the Porsche Crest.
Once the movement is fully wound, you will hear the quiet yet vigorous sound of the motor inside the lightweight titanium case: the Porsche Design Manufaktur calibre, Werk 01.200 with flyback function, load path-optimised movement bridge and official COSC certification. The difference between a chronograph without flyback function? When timing consecutive events, the chronograph buttons have to be pressed three times: to stop, reset and restart the timing. In the Chronograph 911 Speedster, this event timing is automatically activated by a single press.
Shared embossing: the limited edition number on the back of the case is the same as that of your car. As elegant as it is sporty: the carbon dial. The graphics on the dial are of a similar design to the instrument cluster and rev counter of the 911 Speedster. Discreet ‘911 Speedster’ logo is positioned at 9 o’clock. Historic: the ‘70’ on the tachymeter scale – as a tribute to the Porsche anniversary.
The high-quality strap is made of the same leather used in the interior of the 911 Speedster. Likewise the thread and stitching. The leather strap can easily be changed using the self-changing system.
The 911 Speedster and its timepiece counterparts can exclusively be ordered in your Porsche Centre. Just as your car can be manufactured according to your individual wishes, the rotor of your watch can also be modelled on your choice of wheel. The car and watch are delivered together. The Porsche Chronograph 911 Speedster and Porsche Chronograph 911 Speedster in a heritage design are also strictly limited to 1,948 units, just like the 911 Speedster.
