With a new generation of the Porsche 911 set to debut in 2020, the German brand has decided to send the generation of the sports car icon known as 991 out with a bang in the form of a limited edition, the 2019 911 Speedster, which made its debut at the 2019 New York International Auto Show.

The term “Speedster” is one that’s unique to Porsche and has come to mean a convertible, performance-oriented version of one of its vehicles. This is the ninth Porsche model to wear the Speedster designation and the first since 2010. It’s also easy to pick out a Speedster on the street thanks to a pair of humps on the rear deck (one behind each seat) that Porsche calls “streamliners.”
