Porsche reveals new Speedster model

Porsche is all set to unveil a new model of its 356 Speedster - expected to be on UK forecourts by January 2011.

The new 911 Speedster limited edition sports car will come restyled, with much of the original Speedster's designs intact on the updated vehicle. Featuring a stylish lower windscreen and leather interiors, the car will also come with a cover that needs to be adjusted by hand.

The 1540kg 'Pure Blue' paint variant will be revealed at the Paris Motor Show for the first time. There will be only 356 individual cars of the model manufactured for worldwide sale, as a tribute to the original 356 Speedster.

The 911 will also incorporate a 408bhp 3.8-litre flat six engine, allowing it to reach speeds of up to 189.5mph. The car will also be able to hit 62mph in 4.6 seconds.

The 911 Speedster will feature prices starting from £144,100.
