The final previous-generation Porsche 911 to roll from the production line in Zuffenhausen is being auctioned to raise money for those affected by COVID-19.

Proceeds from the sale of Porsche’s final 911 Speedster will be donated to the United Way COVID-19 Community Response and Recovery Fund.

Porsche Design is also offering a retro watch with leather matching the Speedster’s interior and a winding rotor mimicking the alloy wheels for auction.

There’s a one-off book documenting the car’s production process, and the winning bidder is being offered a behind-the-scenes tour of the Porsche Motorsports development centre in Weissach.

This last 991.2 Speedster is fitted with the Heritage Design package, including silver paint offset with a white bumper and upper front fender, numbers on the bonnet and doors, and Porsche script along the lower door.

There’s also gold badges, 20-inch alloy wheels, black and white calipers for the carbon-ceramic brakes, a two-tone black and brown leather interior, Porsche logos embossed on the headrests, and a classic central strip atop the steering wheel.

The 911 Speedster is powered by a 4.0-litre naturally-aspirated flat-six with 374kW of power, hooked up to a six-speed manual.

It also features a chopped windscreen and a manual fabric soft-top. With no air conditioning – and bonnet, wheel arches, bumpers, and aero humps made from carbon-fibre – the Speedster is around 90kg lighter than a regular 911.

Only 1948 Speedsters were produced in total.
