New York LIVE: 2019 Porsche 911 Speedster

With all of that lightweight knowledge applied, the 911 Speedster tips the scales at 3,230 pounds, just 77 pounds heavier than the hardtop 911 GT3 to which it's based on. The 2019 Porsche 911 Speedster will cost $275,750, which includes the delivery fee of $1,250.

The powerplant (here boasting individual throttle bodies) churns out around 370 kW and 470 N.m, accompanied by what Porsche describes as a "highly emotional, racing inspired soundtrack".

The engine uses individual throttle bodies for sharper response, Porsche uses the same individual throttle body trick for its 911 GT3 R race auto. It produces 374kW of power and 469Nm of torque, sent to the rear wheels through the GT3's six-speed manual transmission. The sprint from 0-60 miles per hour (96 km/h) will be dealt with in just 3.8 seconds and the German sports auto can power through to a 192 miles per hour (309 km/h) top speed.

Developed by the Porsche Motorsport department, the 911 Speedster features a low-cut windscreen and side glass, and a manually-operated cloth top. The car's front luggage compartment lid, front fenders and rear decklid are all made from carbon fibre composite material, while the front and rear fasciae consist of polyurethane. The conventional handles have been swapped for fabric pulls, while the door bins have been replaced in favour of fabric storage nets.

Buyers of the 911 Speedster can opt to add the Heritage Edition trim, also on display, which comprises exterior decals inspired by the 356 racers of the 1960s, satin grey wheel paint, black brake calipers and a retro-inspired brown leather interior. The door pulls are red, and the GT Sport steering wheel has a red 12 o'clock center marker.

Made to celebrate the 70th anniversary of Porsche building sports cars, the 2019 Porsche 911 Speedster is a very desirable vehicle, even if you're not a 911 diehard, and especially so if you are.

The rear axle steering and engine mounts have received specific calibration, so the first reviews should talk about the difference these make compared to the GT3 just like the 911 R-vs-GT3-Touring-Package comparos did.
