Sime Darby Auto Performance (SDAP), the official importer and distributor of Porsche models in Malaysia, will be virtually unveiling the Porsche 911 (991) Speedster tomorrow, 2 June 2020 at 8:00 pm on Porsche Malaysia's social media platforms.
The Speedster is a send-off to the 991 generation, a last hurrah if you will. It is essentially a topless GT3 and shares the atmospheric 4.0-litre flat-six engine that sings to 9,000 rpm. And it actually makes a tad more power than the GT3, 10 PS more at 510 PS/470 Nm.
More interestingly, the engine is mated to a 6-speed manual. Depending on how fast you can shift, it can accelerate from 0-100 km/h in 4.0 seconds. Keep going and it’ll reach a top speed of 310 km/h.
The Speedster pays homage to 356 “No. 1” Roadster from 1948, and is limited to only 1,948 units worldwide.
Back to Malaysia, SDAP will be placing more emphasis on digital touchpoints and contactless processes for its customers, to bring the Porsche experience to them in a safer way while maintaining direct communication in light of the new normal.
Catch the livestream tomorrow on Porsche Malaysia’s Facebook, Instagram and dealer website channels.
