THE PORSCHE SPEEDSTER

Instantly recognizable by virtue of its low, wraparound windscreen, its smaller and entirely retractable top, lower door waistline and twin bucket seats (all of which served to emphasize its sporting image), the Speedster was, in effect, an 'economy' model from Porsche intended to compete with the less-expensive British sports cars. The 356 speedster would go on to become one of Stugart's most loved models and has since become an automotive icon. In the rich history of Porsche's heritage, Porsche has only produced a Speedster four times throughout its history - the first being in 1953, the second in 1988, the third in 1993/4, and most recently after a 16-year hiatus, the fourth in 2011.

To Celebrate the 25th anniversary of Porsche Exclusive - a division of Porsche which customizes new cars to customers desired specifications, as well as spear heading limited edition production models - Porsche unveiled the 2011 Porsche 997 Speedster at the 2010 Paris Motor Show. As a nod to the original, Porsche would only build 356 of the 2011 Speedsters - fewer than 100 of them would be exported to the US. With its black framed windshield being 2.4 inches lower than the standard 997 and a double hump that eliminates the rear seat and covers the fabric top when stowed, the new Speedster possesses the main traits that made the original so iconic.

In contrast to the original stripped down version of the 356 Speedster, the newest 997 Speedster was among the most expensive and heavily optioned sports cars Porsche offered. The 997 Speedster came with virtually every performance option available on a 911, including PASM (Porsche Active Suspension Management), Porsche's twin-clutch PDK automated manual gearbox, Sport Chrono plus, limited slip, and Porsche's track-tested ceramic composite brakes (PCCB). These performance upgrades were built on top of the 997 GTS architecture which featured a wide body, rear-wheel drive, powerkit equipped, naturally aspirated 3.8-liter engine which produced 408bhp, which is 63bhp more than a standard Carrera. In addition to the lowered windshield profile and the double hump top boot, the 997 Speedster is aesthetically enhanced with Fuchs style wheels, a unique aerokit, black stone guards, and leather seats adorned with a checkered pattern featuring Speedster stitching.

THE MOTORCAR OFFERED

This particular example is number 182 out of the 356 produced. It is believed that only 90 examples were exported to the US, making it one of the country's most exclusive Porsche models. Having covered fewer than 5,500 miles, number 182 is in outstanding condition. The car was originally sold in Florida and has remained on the east coast its entire life, splitting its time between Florida, Connecticut, and New Jersey. Although rarely used, number 182 has received regular servicing which has been performed at both Braman Motorcars of West Palm Beach, Florida, and at New Country Porsche of Greenwich, Connecticut. It should be noted that in 2013, with only 2,191 miles on the odometer, Braman Motorcars performed the recommended 10,000-mile service.

The 2011 Porsche 997 Speedster is a must have for any serious Porsche collector. Speedster number 182 presents the rare opportunity to acquire a virtually flawless example of the newest, highly collectable Porsche Speedster.
