The Heritage Design package is available exclusively with the GT Silver Metallic paint color. It features a painted white front bumper and fender “arrows,” which stretch back over the fenders and come to a point near the windshield. Classic white “gumball” spheres appear on the front luggage lid and both doors. These are doubtless inspired by their use on historic 356 models; the owners of those cars would personally embellish a starting number on them for a specific race or motoring event. The Heritage stickers can be added via the Porsche Tequipment accessories division or can be left out of the package entirely. Classic Porsche lettering treatment resides on the lower doors.
The production version is celebrating its North American debut in New York. Powered by a naturally-aspirated 4.0 liter flat-six engine capable of up to 9,000 rpm that is also used in the current 911 GT3 and 911 GT3 RS models, the 2019 911 Speedster develops 502 horsepower and 346 lb-ft of torque, accompanied by a highly emotional, racing inspired soundtrack. For the 911 Speedster, this race-bred powerplant has been enhanced with individual throttle bodies that make the throttle response even sharper, just like in the 911 GT3 R race car. To deliver a particularly engaging driving experience highly desired by purists, the 911 Speedster is available exclusively with a GT Sport six-speed manual transmission. 0 to 60 miles per hour happens in just 3.8 seconds.
