The 911 Speedster is the second most expensive Porsche on the market!

The Porsche 911 Speedster just broke cover at the 2019 New York Auto Show after months of speculation and a couple of concept cars. It’s the last 911 based on the 991-generation sports car and one of the nameplate’s highlights alongside the GT3- and GT2-badged models. It’s limited to only 1,948 units, and it’s far from cheap: Porsche wants more than $270,000 for one!

The only 911 that costs more than the Speedster is the GT2

If you want one of these limited-edition roadsters, be prepared to pay a whopping $275,750. That’s three times more than the base 911 and almost $115,000 more than the 911 Turbo. It also costs $132,000 more than the 911 GT3 it is based on. The only 911 that costs more is the GT2, priced from $293,200. That’s an extra $17,450 that will get you turbo power, a lot more oomph, and a big wing for track duty.

Is the 911 Speedster incredibly expensive? Definitely! And it costs a whole lot more than expected. While I was certain that the Speedster will be more expensive than the GT3, I certainly didn’t expect it to fetch in excess of $200,000. But hey, it’s an enthusiast car, a rare nameplate, and a limited edition, so I’m pretty sure that Porsche will probably sell all 1,948 examples in a month or two.

The 911 Speedster’s production run celebrates a special event

For a car this special, Porsche will produce quite a few units. GT3-related 911s are usually built in less than 1,000 examples, with production often capped at around 500 units. But Porsche decided to build 1,984 Speedster for a very special reason. This production figure celebrates 70 years since the German automaker started making road cars. Although it was established in 1931, Porsche didn’t start making road-legal cars until 1948, when it introduced the 356. The 356 was also the first Porsche to spawn a Speedster version in 1954, long before the 911 featured this body style in the late 1980s.
