The mass production model reflects the concept car design.
It is a tradition since the 1988 911 Speedster,"Double bubble"Carbon fiber rear cover, designed to replace the rollover protection structure, fitted in place of the soft topLightweight Tonocover(The convertible top of the fabric is very suitable for daily use)With a sloping front windowShort window frame, Such as side windows.
Indeed,Historic design reminiscent of the Porsche 356, born in 1954It is.
On the other hand, used in concept carsTalbott mirror is not adopted,Instead, it has a motorized adjustable sports design exterior mirror.
The new 911 Speed Star carbon fiber composite bonnet is2 kg lighter than the 911 GT3The carbon fiber composite wing is used in the 911R. The front apron, GT3's, is used, but the lip of the front spoiler has been completely developed.
The aerodynamically adjusted rear spoiler and rear apron were adopted from the 911 GT3 touring.
Next, regarding the interior. The sheet isCarbon fiber composite full bucket seat,The headrest is black leather,Shift lever also has a short strokeIt was done. Lightweight door panel(With a net of accessories)And a belt instead of a doorknob is adopted, etc.Overall weight reductionIt is
Also, the "Speed Star" logo is stamped on the headrest and the center meter.The meter consists of a black dial with white hands and a green number and scaleBut this is also reminiscent of the Porsche 356 Speedster.

911 speed star engine, equipped
The heart of the new 911 Speed Star has been adopted since the 911 GT3.The 4.0 liter horizontally opposed 6-cylinder gasoline naturally aspirated engine rotates up to a high speed range of maximum output 510 hp 9000 rpm.The time from 0 to 100 km / h is 4.0 seconds and the top speed is 310 km / h.
Furthermore, it should be noted that in order to comply with environmental standardsWhile equipped with two GPF (gasoline patite chelate filter), 10 PS more than GT3 and the exhaust system is as light as 10 kgThat's it. Her husband was also concerned about power-down and weight gain by having a GPF, but it is amazing that Porsche has a good balance between environment and power.
For 6-speed MT, correct the engine rotational speed difference between gears accurately and independently when downshiftingIt has an auto blip function.This auto blip function can be turned on / off anytime. In other words, PASM(Porsche Active Suspension Management)It has nothing to do with system settings.
The GT philosophy behind the new Speedster is also reflected in its chassis. The wheel is based on a 20-inch forged Speedster alloy wheel with a central lock, sporty rear axle steering and a dynamic engine mount, based on the 911 GT3 and 911 R technology.
Control systems such as Porsche Torque Vectoring (PTV), Porsche Stability Management (PSM), and PASM with sport tuning function are included.Vehicle height is lowered 25 mmThere is. Also,PCCB brake(Porsche ceramic composite brake)Is standard equipment.
911 Speed Star in Japan
Although not written in the article, "There is no air conditioner for weight reductionThere is also a rumor(Installed as an option). It can not be an ordinary feeling that there is no air conditioner attached to a car that costs tens of millions of yen, but I think that I can be convinced if I think that "purinism" is a model that goes on the ground.
My husband has made a reservation for a while, but I guess the frame will not come around. Although we have finally entered into mass production,Japan's production quota is around 2 digitsIt seems. Then, it would be impossible at first to worship the new 911 Speed Star in the city. I wonder if the readers of this blog are not buying anyone ~ w
