Some cars are considered collectibles from the word go. Porsche has sold many such collectible sports cars in its 60-plus years of business. Their limited-production 911 Speedster, of which only 2,065 were built in 1989, was one of these. It not only celebrated the end of the first generation of air-cooled 911 production, which dated back to 1963, but evoked the legendary 1954-57 356 Speedster in name and imagea sure-fire hit with Porsche enthusiasts and automobile collectors alike. Despite being an image car that was highly recognizable as a special edition, the 911 Speedster brought the goods. Considered option M503 and based on the 214hp 3.2 Carrera Cabriolet, it debuted at the 1987 Frankfurt Motor Show. The production 1989 Speedster wore a unique aluminum framed windshield that was more than 3 inches lower and raked 5 degrees flatter than that of the standard Cabriolet. One-piece wind-up side windows, lacking the Cabriolets fixed quarter panes, curved salaciously in concert with the low-slung temporary convertible top, a complicated-to-erect fabric cover that lacked the insulation, lining and optional power actuation of that on its Cabriolet sibling. It may have been tough to fit and not totally weatherproofPorsche actually required buyers to sign a disclaimer accepting some wind noise and water leaks in poor weatherbut when raised, the roof echoed that of the 356 Speedster, and made the 911 look deadly sinister.Special Speedster equipment also included the evocative twin-hump fiberglass tonneau that covered the folded top and precluded rear seats, and lowered bucket seats with supportive sport seatbacks. Of the 2,056 Speedsters built, 1,894 featured the M491 Turbo Look wide body, suspension and brake upgrade option, and 823 Speedsters were sold in America. Because most were treated as collectibles, the bulk have been driven very little to this daya shame, because the 3.2-liter Carrera-based Speedster is considered among the best-sorted, best built, most durable air-cooled 911s ever made.
