Porsche 911 G Speedster (1989)
The Porsche 911 was first launched in 1963 as a slightly larger, and faster replacement for the aged Porsche 356.
The 911 retained the general layout of rear engine driving the rear wheels. The engine was all new - a six-cylinder, horizontally opposed engine, commencing with a capacity of 2.0 litres.
Like the 356, the 911 line began to evolve quickly. Gaining larger, and more powerful versions of the engine, and receiving matching chassis upgrades to improve road holding and performance. One thing that stayed the same though, was the iconic shape.
By the mid 1980s, the 911 still looked pretty much the same. The car was now quite expensive due to exchange rate changes, and inefficient production processes. A 'new' 911 was around the corner, the '964' still using the original body, but taking a new 3.6-litre engines. The final, rare, and expensive last hurrah of 911 was to come in 1989 when 2104 versions of the 911-Cabriolet based 'Speedster' were available.
'The car was available in standard or 'widebody' Turbo-look versions. All cars used the 3.2 litre version of the iconic flat-six.
