It feels like it’s been a while since I posted a 911 Speedster for sale and this one seems interesting enough to bring to everyone’s attention. At least I think it’s an interesting one. The mileage is very low, but that really isn’t a peculiar thing among Speedsters. It seems like we’re more likely to come across an example like this with a mere 3,514 miles on it than one which actually has been driven. What I am more interested in here is the color. It’s Dark Blue, which is one of the more rare colors we’ve seen. The only problem is that it’s near impossible to tell if that’s actually its color. I’m pretty sure it is. The pictures taken close up do look somewhat blue. Very dark blue. So dark that in most of the pictures it looks black!
Red, white, and black were the dominant colors for the 911 Speedster so I’m always interested in those that are in most any other color. This one fits that bill even if the difference is extremely subtle.
Back for more RHD British action. This time I’m not going with an actual production model, but rather a retro build to produce a 911…
One of the aspects I enjoy most about writing about cars is coming across those I’ve never seen before, especially when it’s a model that I otherwise come across quite frequently. Enter the Porsche 911 Speedster. We’ve featured many examples of the 911 Speedster, and we come across many more, but they broadly fall into the same class. They are low mileage, appear in excellent condition, and either Guards Red, Black, or Grand Prix White. For all intents and purposes they are excellent cars with a great deal of value on the current market. But after awhile they all blend together. So when we happened to come across this Baltic Blue 1989 Porsche 911 Speedster with Silk Grey interior I was delighted to see an example I had never seen before. The 911 Speedster has been a collectible from the moment it was released so examples appearing in one of the more rare colors or options will attract significant notice.
Another rare, low-mileage, 964 and another very high price. This time, however, we have an auction in which the reserve has been met so we should be able to get a reasonable idea of the current market. After the 964 Speedster, Porsche fans would have to wait nearly two decades for another Speedster variant to appear and as the last of the air-cooled models the 964 is sure to remain a hit. Also, while none of the 911 Speedsters have been as stripped down as the original iteration of the 356, the 964 Speedster may be the closest of the bunch. Based on the narrow-bodied Carrera 2, the lines of this Speedster show a familiar resemblance to the original and remind us of some of Porsche’s earliest low-frills performance machines. The particular example featured here comes from a collection of Speedsters: a triple Black 1994 Porsche 911 Speedster, located in Arizona, with just 10,456 miles on it.
While those of us in the Eastern US deal with below average temperatures (or insane amounts of snow) it’s nice to day dream of taking out an open-topped car and enjoying the sun and the wind as you dive from corner to corner. Porsche’s most bare-bones expression of that ideal has come in the guise of the Speedster and here we have the last of the air-cooled models produced: a paint-to-sample Silver Metallic 1994 Porsche 911 Speedster, at Champion Porsche in Florida, with just 18,802 miles on it. While the 911-based iterations of the Speedster were never as bare bones as the original 356 Speedster, they still took a departure from their more refined and well-equipped Cabriolet brethren, lacking rear seats and possessing a removable windscreen, lighter front seats, and door pulls. Unlike its predecessor the 3.2 Carrera based 911 Speedster, the majority of Speedsters produced for the 964 were modeled off of the Carrera 2 body rather than the wider Turbo-look. Opinions will vary with regard to which is the better looking version, but the narrow-body 964 Speedster certainly strikes a closer resemblance to the original.
