Classic look for a limited-edition 911 spin-off.

by on Sep.21, 2010

The Porsche Speedster is back - in limited-edition form - for the first time in 18 years.

Porsche is bringing back the classic 911 Speedster, a legendary car often associated with the sports car elite, like Steve McQueen, for a limited run next year.

Only the third version of the Speedster ever offered, the retro chop-top design will help mark the end of the current 911 – known to Porsche aficionados as the 997.  Only 356 Porsche Speedsters will be built, a subtle historical reference to the 356 Speedster originally introduced in 1953.

The new version, which will make its debut at the Paris Motor Show later this month, will be easy to spot.
