Porsche 911 Speedster live photos – Click above for high-res image gallery

You can tell pretty much everything you need to know about the Porsche 911 Speedster just by looking at it. It's a 911, which means it's got a flat-six engine in the ass-end and it's got... ahem, classical styling, for better or for worse. We'll just go ahead on record right now and say that it's not nearly as pretty as the original 356 Speedster it's meant to evoke, but what is?

Moving on, there are 408 horsepower from the 3.8-liter engine driving the rear wheels through a seven-speed Porsche Doppelkupplungsgetriebe (PDK, of course, we just like typing the full name) dual-clutch transmission. The run to 60 is dispatched in 4.6 seconds and the top speed is just shy of 190. See the latest Speedster in all its glory in our high-res image gallery of live photos below.

      Love the body, HATE that blue color...

      I'm a hardcore Porschephile and I do like this new variant, however the blue accents on the interior, (especially around the HVAC vents) screams boy-racer gone wild w/ a rattle can of paint not unlike some clapped-out Honda Civics... Please let this just be a minor dip in the pool of tackiness for my beloved brand!

        I may be one of only a few ones, but i dig the color. I can't really explain why, though.

      I liked the 964 Speedster as it was very clean, but this is very fussy, especially the side skirts and the 80s style wheel arch covers. The colour is very 1993.

      i just love those fuchs wheels
        • 4 Years Ago
        I also like the wheels.

        And I love 911s in general. But the hunchback look doesn't do it for me. I'd take a regular 911S Cab instead, and save the bazillion dollar premium Porsche wants for this special edition.

      My god this car needs to go on the Atkins diet. I feel like the ass-end of it can eat an SUV should (god forbid) you happen to be rear-ended by one. Still this car is strangely beautiful despite the deformity on its rear.

      I like the front but the rear looks like it shoved half a beetle up its bum. Its not worth it, ill pass

      Those Fuchs-style wheels are hot.

      I don't give a S what anyone says.
