1988-1989 PORSCHE 911 Speedster specifications Classic and Performance Car

A retro-styled homage to the Fifties’ 356 Speedster. Strictly a two-seater, it’s all 3.2 Carrera underneath, but above the waist there’s a shorter and steeply raked windscreen and a hard tonneau cover that gave the back a bit of a hump. Weather protection was on the rudimentary side, but that didn’t matter too much as the bulk of the two thousand or so produced headed to America. The car also became an instant collectible, so few Speedsters were pressed into daily service. That makes finding a good example pretty easy, though paying for it may be another matter.
