The body is borrowed from the Carrera 4 Cabriolet, modified with shortened window frames, a more steeply-raked windscreen, a carbon-fibre “double-bubble” rear deck and carbon front wings. There’s no air conditioning (though customers can spec it), standard ceramic brakes, a manually-operated roof (with an electronic latch) and various other carbon panels to supposed to keep things light.
Henry Catchpole takes the new manual Porsche 911 Speedster, based on the GT3, for a drive on the tarmac of Sardinia, Italy for a test of the car that is both a final hurrah for the 991 generation 911 and a celebration of la dolce vita.
