The Speedster is one of those iconic Porsches held in consistently high regard by many fans of the marque and which Porsche has released periodically as a means to celebrate its history and to provide its buyers with a chance at experiencing that history. While the original Speedster was intended as a budget weekend-racer, subsequent versions have tended to come at a premium relative to its standard counterparts. For the 1994 release, Porsche based the Speedster off of the 964 body and even offered a clubsport version to further solidify the relationship the car shared with the original 356. With less than 1000 total 964 Speedsters built, and almost half of those coming to the US, these remain pretty rare cars and tend to be bought up by collectors. The example featured here is a 1994 Porsche 911 Speedster in Guards Red over Black. With less than 6K miles on the clock this Speedster presents in nearly like-new condition both inside and out; the seats hardly look like they’ve been sat in!
To me, the 964 Speedster is a more aesthetically pleasing version relative to the 1989 Speedster, which derived its looks largely from the 930. The curves of the 964 body simply fit the lines of the Speedster very well and offer an appearance that is more akin to that of the 356.

There’s no avoiding it so we might as well address it immediately: the price: $264,500. It’s just too high; probably way too high. Anything is possible with rare Porsches, especially those that pay homage to Porsche’s roots, as the Speedster does, but the price here is simply well ahead of the current market. We have seen low mileage examples of the 964 Speedster (granted not as low mileage as this one) struggle to sell at $100,000. At more than twice that price, this one commands quite a premium and while any Speedster will almost certainly make for a fantastic investment, this is well ahead of the curve. Regardless, this is a beautiful, and rare, 964 that is sure to attract plenty of attention.
