Porsche prepares a hot cabriolet with “evil” atmospheric engine from GT3July 16, 2018
According to the British edition of Autocar, the company showed the conceptual 911 Speedster generation 991 at the car festival in Goodwood, where the brand celebrates the 70th anniversary of its sports models.
Just a few weeks ago, the novelty “shone” before the objectives of the photoshoot at the Nurburgring, which indicates the seriousness of Porsche’s intentions regarding the new gig.
Technically, the cabriolet will almost completely repeat the 911 GT3 coupe of the current generation of 991. Under its hood there will be a perfectly sounding atmospheric opposite six with a capacity of four liters, the capacity of which will be more than 500 forces with a cut-off of 9000 revolutions per minute. Presented in the Goodwood concept was shown in a performance with a six-speed manual transmission, although the current GT3 coupe can be equipped not only with a “handle”, but also with a seven-speed robotic transmission PDK.
The dynamic characteristics of the new 911 Speedster are not disclosed, but it is likely that the cabriolet will be slightly heavier than the GT3 coupe, which with a similar motor accelerates to 100 kilometers per hour in 3.9 seconds in the version with a manual gearbox and 3.4 seconds with PDK. The maximum speed of the coupe reaches 320 and 318 kilometers per hour, and, in general, similar characteristics should have a new convertible, but cars with an open top are usually heavier than traditional bodies due to safety arcs.
For the maximum possible weight reduction, the car, according to our colleagues, can be deprived of navigation, multimedia system and air conditioner. Also in the cabin will be installed made of carbon sports “buckets”.
According to Autocar, the convertible will be released in the number of 2000 copies.
It is expected that the price tag will be at the level of 155 000 pounds sterling.
