Porsche made just two 993-generation 911 Speedsters. One was for original 911 designer Butzi Porsche, and the other was a commission by Jerry Seinfeld.

The 993 Speedster Remastered at The Quail wears Peninsula Cypan paint and a wild mix of Mandarin Orange and green leather upholstery. To retain chassis rigidity, the spot usually for the rear seats now houses body reinforcements. A carbon fiber tonneau cover covers this area and incorporates roll hoops. The windshield has a carbon fiber frame and cowl with aluminum reinforcements.
Gunther Werks also adds bullet-shaped aluminum side mirrors and a carbon fiber front splitter. Buyers can upgrade to five-spoke wheels that look like the classic Fuchs design but with carbon fiber barrels and magnesium centers. The exhaust tips are 3D-printed Inconel.
In all, the 993 Speedster Remastered weighs just 2,590 pounds (1,175 kilograms).
The rear deck conceals a 4.0-liter flat-six engine that makes 435 horsepower (324 kilowatts) and 335 pound-feet (454 Newton-meters). The mill has a redline at 7,800 revs.
The power runs through a Getrag G50 six-speed manual gearbox with revised ratios and a new differential with carbon clutches.
The model rides on an adaptive suspension from JRZ that offers three modes to select from – Composed, Sport, and Sport Plus. The front and rear anti-roll bars come from Eisenlohr Racing, and there's a front strut brace. To stop, there are Brembo six-piston calipers in front and four-piston stoppers at the back.
Gunther Werks is making just 25 examples of the 993 Speedster Remastered. Production should begin in early 2022.
