1989 Porsche 911 Speedster

The first Porsche 911 Speedster was built in 1989. It was the last vehicle with the old 911 body. In the same year the Carrera 4 was created with the new body. The old Porsche 911 Carrera in Turbo-look formed the basis for the Speedster. In contrast to the 911 Cabriolet, however, the Speedster only had an emergency roof.
