The end of an era has arrived for the Porsche brand. The last Porsche 991 has officially rolled off the production line, representing the end of a generation. First launched in 2011, the 991-gen Porsche 911 had featured an aluminum-steel composite body, almost 90% new components, and an advanced roll stabilization system.
The final 911 model is a limited edition 911 Speedster with a convertible top, unique bodywork, a six-speed manual transmission, and a 4.0-liter flat-six engine rated at 500 horsepower and 339 lb-ft of torque. It is finished in a two-tone white and silver paint.
This model come well-equipped with high-performance features including a special suspension, carbon ceramic brakes, a carbon fiber fixed rear wing, unique styling elements, and an underbody diffuser.
With this model, Porsche has produced 233,540 Porsche 911 models since 2011. Of that total, only 1,948 of those were Speedsters. This pays tribute to the Porsche 356 that was first launched in 1948. The 356 was the first generation of the 911 before the name was changed.
The next-generation 911 model will be the 992. This version is already available on the Carrera and Carrera S trim levels. In the future, likely for the 2022 model year, Porsche has plans to give the 911 an electric powertrain option.
With the end of an era comes the start of a new one. Be part of the 992-generation of Porsche 911s at Gossett Porsche.
