New Porsche 911 Speedster unveiled

by  | 

German luxury carmaker Porsche has announced details about its new 911 Speedster model, ahead of its debut at the Paris Motor Show next month.

The open top two-seater vehicle, based on the Porsche 356 Speedster, includes a host of new styling features.

The manufacturer said there will be only 356 units of the model manufactured for worldwide sale.

Flaunting a specially developed 'Pure Blue' colour, the new Porsche 911 Speedster will hit showrooms in the UK early next year. Prices will start from £144,100.

People who are planning to buy the new Porsche car will also opt for a suitable car insurance policy.

Powered by a 408bhp 3.8-litre flat six engine, the limited-edition model is capable of reaching speeds of up to 189.5mph.

The car - which weighs just about 1540kg - comes with a lower, more rakish windscreen and a double-bubble hardcover for the soft-top roof.
