One of just 139 right-hand drive Speedsters, the inspiration for the car was derived from the wonderful 356 Porsche Speedsters of the 1950’s. With its lowered seat height, and steeply raked windscreen, and curvy speed humps, the Speedster provides a great driving experience and makes a very impressive design statement.
The premise for the development of the 911 Carrera was more power, combined with reduced fuel consumption. So, a re-design of the engine’s inlet and exhaust systems, the fitment of a service-free Digital Engine Management ignition system (DME) in conjunction with Bosch L-Jetronic fuel metering was undertaken. The result was a significant increase in engine performance but a significant reduction in fuel consumption, through better engine efficiency and fuel cut-off when coasting.
With a capacity of 3.2 litres and a high compression ratio of 10.3:1, the air-cooled 6-cylinder, horizontally opposed engine of the Carrera, produces an output of 170 kW (231 BHP) at 5,900 rpm. Maximum torque is 284 Nm at 4,800 rpm, and the maximum speed, limited by electronic cut-out, is around 6,500 rpm. Acceleration and top speed of the Speedster model are 0 - 62 mph in 6.1 seconds and 152 mph, respectively.
Supplied new by Lancaster Porsche Colchester in February 1990, this terrific Speedster boasts a complete service history with Porsche main dealers and renowned Porsche specialists.
