The new Porsche 911 Speedster is one of the most thrilling and exclusive convertibles in the world. This is because, in honour of the original 356 Speedster of the fifties, only 356 examples will be produced worldwide. Its vibrant 'pure blue' colouring is special too, as this has been specifically created for the car and contrasts beautifully with the striking interior.Now, exclusivity tends to be expensive so the new Porsche 911 Speedster costs an eye- watering £144,000. How many would you like, Sir? For this price wealthy followers of fashion benefit from the 3.8-litre 408bhp flat-six engine. This propels the shiny blue paint to 62mph in 4.4 seconds, and on to a license losing 189mph. I've not seen anything move that fast since a spider 'attacked' my arachnophobia suffering friend. The Porsche 911 Speedster is further distinguishable from its siblings because of various extra features. Most notable is the double-bubble rear that conceals the roof. This fabric weather shield is operated manually, but unlike some convertibles there is no speed restriction once it is raised to join the Speedster's lowered windscreen. Roof up or down through, this rear-wheel drive seven-speed beast looks and feels fantastic.
