Take a Look at Five Forgotten Porsche Prototypes in This Video In this video, Porsche dives deep into its collection to choose the top five lesser-known prototypes from its past. © Motor Trend StaffThe prototypes covered in the video range from early pre-production test mules to one-off design studies and concepts with production intent that never got off the ground. The first pick fits into the latter category. The Porsche 984 was a two-seat roadster that prioritized light weight and superior driving dynamics over power. It packed a rear-mounted flat-four that made 133 hp, but the car weighed just under 2,000 pounds minus fluids and the driver.

Porsche has gotten our attention right off the bat at the 2019 New York Auto Show by bringing the 911 Speedster for its North American debut. It won't be plentiful, limited to just 1,948 units worldwide. It won't be cheap, either. The 2019 Porsche 911 Speedster will cost $275,750, which includes the delivery fee of $1,250.

The 911 Speedster borrows its naturally-aspirated 4.0 liter flat-six engine from the 911 GT3 and 911 GT3 RS. That produces 502 horsepower and 346 pound-feet of torque, with a pulse-elevating 9,000-rpm redline. It gets individual throttle bodies for improved response, and is mated to a GT Sport six-speed manual transmission. It'll do 0-60 miles per hour in just 3.8 seconds, before continuing to a top speed of 192 miles per hour.
