The Devil Is In The Details Of This Custom 993 Speedster

Porsche officially built just one 993-generation 911 Speedster. On the occasion of Butzi Porsche’s 60th birthday in 1995, the company presented him with a one-off tiptronic Speedster on 17″ wheels. Longtime Porsche customer Jerry Seinfeld commissioned the Sonderwunsch program to build him a silver widebody Speedster as well, starting from a cabriolet base car in 1998. Since then, a handful of home-built and specialist assembled cars have been produced, and this red example, as featured by Petrolicious is perhaps among the most often seen of them. It takes a serious passion to re-make your 911 into a different style of 911, but with the right parts, the right mechanic, and enough money, you can accomplish anything you set your mind to.

Even if the factory didn’t build these in large number, it really should have, because this look works incredibly well. The parts installed on this car are largely factory original, with only as few custom pieces as necessary. The windshield has been sourced from a 964 Speedster, and the bodywork has been expertly crafted from other 993 components. The interior is all carbon fiber, and it was hand-crafted by a guy in Germany who did carbon work for the Porsche factory, which is a cool little note. The 993 badge is actually a factory Porsche component, but Porsche never made a 993 badge, so the owners of the car bought a 968 badge. The 6 has been flipped to become the second 9, and the 8 has been cut just right to become a 3. Pretty slick if you ask me.

The car lives in Las Vegas today, and it feels perfectly in line with the car’s ethos. It’s a little flashy, very visible, and has been custom made and personalized to a degree not often seen. From relatively humble beginnings, this 993 won the jackpot and was transformed into a unique vision of Porsche specialness. If you can dream it, you can build it.

Sales Spotlight: Porsche 993 Speedster

After the disappointing sales of the 964 Speedster, Porsche decided that it wouldn’t officially build a 993 version of the iconic open-top Neunelfer (unless your name was Ferdinand Porsche or Jerry Seinfeld).

Therefore, those wanting a 993 Speedster had to create it themselves. Some, like the car we featured in issue 135, have been finished so well they could be mistaken for factory builds, while others have missed the mark spectacularly.

Ninemeister’s ‘9m93 Speedster S’ builds fall firmly into the former category, as this truly stunning car (one of just four such creations by Colin Belton’s firm) attests. And, what’s more, it could be yours as it’s currently for sale at esteemed specialist, Hexagon Modern Classics.

Starting life as a 993 Carrera Cabriolet, Ninemeister’s Speedster transformation was nothing less than extensive, adding Turbo-look flared rear arches, evoking the spirit of the popular 3.2 Carrera Speedsters of the Eighties.

Belton’s engineering expertise came to the fore here too as, unlike many conversions, Ninemeister strengthened the body shell in order to ensure the 993 Speedster handled as well as a factory Coupe.

Weighing in at under 1,350kg, the Ninemeister 9m93 Speedster S is claimed to be faster accelerating than a standard 993 Carrera, following the ethos of the original 356 Speedster.

Each Ninemeister Speedster was built bespoke for its original owner, with the 993 version for sale at Hexagon finished in Blazing Orange. Inside the grey leather interior (featuring RS-style door cards) comes with orange piping and, with the car having done just 8,400 miles, appears as new.

Genuine, gloss black, 19-inch Fuchs alloys complete the look while a KW suspension kit with lift ensures that you can cruise down even the bumpiest streets without fearing for this stunning car’s coachwork.
