Porsche will unveil the all-new limited edition Porsche 911 Carrera Speedster at the Paris Auto Show later this month. The new 911 Speedster is the fourth model in Porsche history to bear the Speedster name and pays homage to the first speedster, the 356 Speedster. This new two-seat roadster combines the classic Speedster series features with improved performance over the current 911 generation: The 3.8-liter flat six engine delivers 408 horsepower (hp), 23 hp more in comparison with the 911 Carrera S Cabriolet, yet is EPA rated the same at 19 mpg city / 27 mpg highway. The 2011 Speedster reaches 0-60 MPH in 4.2 seconds with Sport Chrono Plus and has a top-track speed of 190 mph (305 km/h).
In the U.S., the 911 Carrera Speedster will be available beginning in early 2011, MSRP will be $204,000.
