THIS is the New Porsche 911 Speedster! | My First Drive

My first drive in the new Porsche 911 Speedster! With an incredible sound, manual gearbox, and open roof, it's a recipe for a fantastic drive but let's found out if it lives up to expectations. The outing with my friends at Dulac Cars gets even better thanks to convoying with their 911 GT3 too for even more of a Porsche experience!
It's a formula that's been tried, tested, and proven to succeed; the purest driving form of the Porsche 911 returns in Speedster bodystyle. Powered by the familiar 4.0l naturally aspirated flat-6 at the back that's been re-engineered for the new standards, despite existing alongside the newer turbo generation 992 cars, and now making 510hp. Crucially, engagement comes thanks to the 6 speed manual gearbox with auto-blip as an option, and of course keeping the weight down while allowing the open-top experience is a roof that requires manual involvement to save weight and prevent the centre of gravity lifting more than it needs to.
There are only 1,948 Speedsters in existence, having launched in 2018 during Porsche's 70th anniversary since being founded in 1948, and this example from Dulac Cars is one of only a handful featuring very high CCX Exclusive Manufaktur content. In particular the body is PTS Miessen Blue, the colour of the first 1954 356 Speedster, the roof is navy blue matching with the Mer Blue wheels, and the interior features navy blue leather with houndstooth seat inserts to go with them.
To get things started, we're at the collection that features an amazing array of cars including the 991.2 GT3 manual which joins for the convoy drive, a 991.2 GT2 RS, both a Ferrari 812 Superfast and 812 GTS, Pista Spider and a McLaren 600LT. After getting the Speeedster out on the road it's an opportunity for me to experience it both roof down and later roof up as well, to experience what it's like.
There's no doubt it's a precise and brilliant machine, although with a significantly higher price tag than the GT3 considering the work that needed to be done to the engine it's also a challenging proposition. Combine the impacts to the engine's exhaust note thanks to the regulation-required OPF and some of the drama is taken away from an otherwise absolutely fantastic car.
Thanks for watching, Tim

The Porsche 911 Speedster brings a winning formula to the table, but let's find out if it lives up to expectations. With a Porsche gap in the garage, do you think this should be the next addition?

I must be missing the point. These are pushing 300k and the 718 boxster Spyder also has a flat six 4.0 for less than 100k. OK not GT3 power but close for a lighter car, an ECU upgrade could close gap with a new noisier exhaust. The Spyder looks very similar and pretty much as good. They both have the same two seats. No 911 rear seats in the speedsters of course. Mid engine v rear engine and the two boots of 718 v one small front boot of speedster. I'm confused. Is it because 1,948 cars is now considered limited edition?

Wow I never thought I'd see a convertible make me think twice about a GT3. This car is amazing. I enjoy how Porsche kept away from an auto roof, feels more personal and no doubt less needlessly heavy.

So youve driven the speedster in the Netherlands? Have you noticed that almost everyone, including 18 year old girls, can drive a manual? I live in the Netherlands and I would die for taking A GT3 with manual for a drive. I just dont know how I'm gonna do it yet, I just dont have the lucky contacts some people get with (rich) parents or anything. I WILL drive or buy one someday. I'm just 19 years old so I've got time to grow. Great vid!

That spec is sick. In the thumbnail it looked baby blue and boring. But after a closer look, the light blue + all the navy is so nice. That houndstooth is the cherry on top. Speedsters should be fun and lux and personal.

Well, it depends on what you're looking for; Do you prefer a daily or a weekend car? Practicality? Me personally, after already having a chance for a Porsche Cayman GT4, I'd re-evaluate my current garage before attempting another major purchase or lease. That being said, there are a plethora of car brands and only a select few are really worth the money in their own design. It's your choice at the end of the day man.

Im sure noone is gonna test it but besided beeing a magnificent car, i think this will overheat in a noon traffic jam in the summer. I mean look at the cooling. Probably has another intake underneath, but it wont help much, as it cant be too large and thus only be efficient at high speeds.

Sorry but this car is an absolute failure. I love Porsche’s engineering but why does every car have to look the same from the front? Why doesn’t the it have either a full electric roof or a fully manual the little motor defies the point. The small cabin with the grandad bucket seats?? Just doesn’t make sense. The small boot can’t fit a thing in. Sounds ok but the Porsche in front sounds way better and cost WAY less. Pointless car lol sorry Porsche fans but it’s a no this time.
