Spotted on @TheRealMA, MotorAuthority.com is the luxury and performance leader in showcasing Porsche and hundreds of other leading performance vehicles. The rear view of this 2012 Carrera 4S Cabriolet was striking enough to make it on the return of Spotted9s.
Spotted 9s is welcoming to the 911 line, the 2011 Speedster. We think naming a Porsche a Speedster is slightly redundant not only because the name Porsche is synonymous with ‘speed’, but also because the earliest Porsche 356 was also named the Speedster…oh well.
Combining, the classic features of the well-known Speedster series with improved performance over the current 911 generation: The 3.8-liter flat six engine delivers 408 horsepower (hp), 23 hp more in comparison with the 911 Carrera S Cabriolet, yet is EPA rated the same at 19 mpg city / 27 mpg highway. The 2011 Porsche Speedster reaches 0-60 MPH in 4.2 seconds with Sport Chrono Plus and has a top-track speed of 190 mph (305 km/h) – all courtesy of Porsche Intelligent Performance.
Paying homage to the first Porsche model to bear the Speedster name – the 356 Speedster – the new Porsche 911 Speedster made its debut at the 2010 Paris Motor Show. Significantly different from other members of the 911 family, this two-seat roadster features a 2.36″ lower, more raked windscreen and the characteristic speedster double-bubble hardcover for the manual soft top. Helping to define the striking profile of the new 2011 Porsche 911 Speedster, the 1.73″ wide-body from the AWD 911 models makes the rear-wheel-drive only Speedster stand out even more. The production run of this special car will be limited to 356 units worldwide, with approximately 100 heading to the U.S., will we spot you in one of these limited edition blue bombshells?
As Spotted by the WorldCarFans.com team and Spotted9s, these images of the 2012 Porsche 911 (991) are among the most sought after images relating to spied images of the 2012 model. While this vehicle carries on the tradition of the 911, it calls for a definite upgrade to the numbers you call out in an emergency. That’s why for this spotting…somebody call 9-9-1!
From what you’ve read and seen about the 2012 911, do you think Porsche is getting better with age or straying too far from the formula?
Happy Halloween From the crew here at Spotted9s!
Despite the 2010 Halloween and Thanksgiving holidays being over, the team has continued to turn in supercharged sightings of the speeding pumpkins, better known as the Orgasmic Orange colored 911s. Take your pick by trim or era. Which ever way you choose to go fast in Orange, the Porsche force will always be with you.
Would you know what to do with yourself in a room full of Porsche 911’s, especially if the keys were left in the ignition of each one? We spotted this varied array of our favored 9’s from a top secret overhead spy cam of a warehouse whose location has yet to be disclosed. Just know that the Spotted 9’s team will go to the ends of the earth to get you the most interesting gallery of 911s you’ll ever find.
