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.

On top of the world in the 2011 911 Speedster

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.

Speedster

911 Speedster

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?

991 spied on the test track

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.

 

 

Guards Red

Red-diculously Rambunctious 911 GT

Spotted on a mid-western pre-driven exotic cars lot, this 2007 Guards Red Porsche 911 GT gives off a ridiculous and rambunctious vibe as it poses on the lot for our spotted 9s’ camera. It was saying buy me…buy me, but alas, the best we could do was feature it among this week’s Spotted 9s sightings.

Porsche 911 Mirage GT

Black Mirage Spy Photo

From our friends at TheChive.com comes this test track spy photo of the Porsche GT Mirage. As we rubbed our eyes and waited for the ‘kick’ to determine whether or not we were experiencing an Inception , we quickly realized that this spotting of the Porsche Mirage GT was indeed real and we had to share it with you, the Spotted 9’s readers.  Sorry, but you’ll have to determine on your own how to incorporate this concept machine from Porsche into your dreams – or into your own reality. See more images of this magnificent machine at TheChive.com. Experience it now in the video below.

Abundance, Gregarious

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.

Porsche 911 Turbo

Don't adust your computer screen

Somewhere in the construed lines of light and color emerges the beauty of a black 2010 Porsche 911 Turbo, spotted traveling at high speeds west on Van Buren Street in downtown Chicago.

We spotted this 911 race car a tad bit off course in Charlotte, NC. While Lowes Motor Speedway is only 20 miles or so away this classic 9 seems to have lost it’s way.

In 2011, Spotted9s may have to be changed to Spotted 620s, because next year Porsche introduces a new beast to the tracks and the streets. Introducing the new 2011 Porsche 911 GT2 RS. This land rocket comes loaded with 620 horsepower of raw energy propelling the carbon fiber hooded, gold-bedazzled wheeled, 2-person meteorite from 0-to-60 in 3.2-seconds.

Don’t just take our word for it.  Spotted 9s also has the video to prove it.

Vintage Porsche 356

A Porsche 356, A Starlet, and A Beach

A Spotted blast from the past, this classic Porsche 356 stars in a photo shoot on a northern California beach appropriately accented with a hollywood starlet posing as a hood ornament. While a Porsche 9xx never made the co-starring role in a James Bond film, this sighting is  reminiscent of a scene from almost any Bond movie with a blonde, an exotic sports car and a beach.
