The paint alone costs almost $13,000

Forget about the fact that the 2019 Porsche 911 Speedster was built on 911 GT3 bones. It’s a car’s design, paint, or sound that first makes the heart skip a beat and seeing this particular Speedster will send you to the cardiologist in no time.

We have no clue regarding why or how this car ended up in an auction house.

All we know is that it has just 32 miles on the odometer, which makes it brand new, basically, and it’s #1,370 of the 1,948 units ever made.

Oh, yeah, about the paint: it’s called Paint-to-Sample Signal Yellow Non-Metallic. The paint-to-sample element comes from the customer’s ability to chose almost any color they want. For a hefty price, obviously - in this case, $12,800.

Under that gorgeous body, Porsche dropped what can be considered one of its best modern powerplants: a 911 GT3-derived 4.0-liter flat-six of the naturally-aspirated ilk that has been slightly revised to produce 502 horsepower at 8,400 rpm and 346 pound-feet of torque at 6,250 rpm.

Engine 4.0-liter flat six-cylinder
Horsepower 502 hp @ 8,400 rpm
Torque 346 lb-ft @ 6,250 rpm
Transmission six-speed manual
0-60 mph 3.8 seconds

The gearbox is the same slick-shifting, six-speed aggregate from the 991 GT3, with power and torque drilling into the asphalt through the rear axle.

The only problem with the 991 Speedster, for us mortals that is, has to do with the price tag. When new and still in production, the car started at around $227,000.

Given that you cannot buy one of these anymore and this one just happened to casually pop up, that price tag might get fatter quicker than you can say Speedster.

Tudor’s first encounter with cars took place when he was only a child. Back then, his father brought home a Trabant 601 Kombi and a few years later, a Wartburg 353. At that time, he was too young to know how they worked and way too young to drive them, but he could see one thing – each of them had a different ethos and their own unique personality. As time went on, he started seeing that in other cars as well, and his love for the automobile was born.  Read full bio
