Goodwood makes sense, but 1948 units doesn’t seem very limited. Wasn’t the 911R less than 1,000 units?

It was my understanding each dealer would only get one, max two speedsters.

I don't think they will make a road car as limited as the R again for a while, for various reasons.
1948 is my bet, from various rumors.

That's because many, if not most, outside of RL will not want one.

In fact, many on RL do not want one.

I suppose I'd have one if I were a collector. But they're always pretty ugly.

so how does that equate to over double the 911r production numbers?

Totally agree with you. In blue it was perfect. My favourite Speedster gen.

Eye of the beholder I guess. I did question the aesthetics when thinking about how big the car is and covering the rear seats.

For sure, but shocked at nearly 2,000 produced. How many exclusive turbos were produced? This is a shocking number.

drop top 4.0 with manual and retro styling. Sign me up please.
