I think the 964 looks better in speedster profile than the 993 - Great pic all the same

This one is for sale in the Neatherlands - It's a little unclear as the car is listed as a 1990?!? but still nice all the same:

There was a Black 993 Speedster in Italy that was for sale about 2 years ago..I inquired about it and it was already sold...so, there is a legitimate black on black one out there! I remember it having 18" turbo twists, sport seats and possibly carbon fiber dash...if memory serves correctly.

It is very interesting.
There appear to be possibly three genuine 993 Speedsters (ex factory) pictured on this thread. None is denying Jerry C4S style speedster.
I have pictures of Butzi with his speedster and oter photographs of him with the car which I cannot locate. It was built by the factory and is based on a C2 NA chassis by the looks with the srandard C2 rear flares an front bumper.
Then there is Mark Porsches 993 Speedster. We have to assum factory but this car looks like its built on a C4S shell with wide rear fenders but no C4S side sills. Also turbo front bumper. Mark sounds like he likes his tuner Porsches so there is a chance of course this may be an ex factory recreation (or don after the car was originally built).

Interesting stuff....

It's got the correct seats and center console, but the door panels are from an earlier car and the wipers being that far apart are also a dead giveaway.

Here is a 94' Speedster with a Ruf turbo motor owned by Los Angeles Porsche Dismantlers. Actually a pretty cool car.

Easy on the LAPD bashing

Well spotted even I didn't see that one

Scott that looks stunning but I'd like to see the rear screen - probably Lexan ... Any pictures from the rear?

I know it's another 964 but this is the one I like the best:









And here is another currently for sale in Japan:









Lovely condition with factory installed Recaro buckets

Lastly one from Strosek which is a conversion:



LOL - Just changed my mined - I'll take the white one

I have one and had the same idea. The only way it works is that you have to remove the entire top assembly. The top on a Speedster tucks below the quarter panels of the car. Basically the top sits where the rear seats are. I tried it and really wanted it to work. It will if you like the permanent Roadster look.

Wasnt this one in at a small dealer in Towson Md? I know one time I went there and they had 3 white (2 89's, 1 94) speedsters. There was a guy around here with a 964 as well.
