Porsche 911 Speedster: Driving review

Porsche 911 Speedster

Interesting driving review here including great photos of the Porsche 911 Speedster. Have a read!

But it’s the changes above the waistline that are the important ones. For a start the windscreen is 60mm lower, and by now you will have noticed the double-bubble bump, which hides the manual roof. Gone are the heavy electric motors (and the back seats) in place of a DIY hood. Strangely you still need to hold down a button in the cabin so the electrics can lift the rear deck up a few millimetres, but then you take over, haul up the bodywork and fold the hood into place. Despite the process being 15 steps long, clipping the roof in place is not complex – it takes barely a minute, and it’s still a proper, thick fabric hood, rather than the tent you’ll find on the Boxster Spyder.
