1994 911 Speedster by Strosek

This '90s icon brought the money, even for a Tiptronic

After graduating Germany’s famous Wuppertal design school in 1970, Vittorio Strosek honed is craft under the tutelage of industrial designer Luigi Colani before venturing out on his own in the 1980s. Known for his widebody work, Strosek began his Porsche program with the 928 but really hit his stride modifying 964s throughout the ‘90s.

This 1994 911 Speedster was modified with Strosek’s signature widened bodywork and a revised front fascia featuring ellipsoid headlights molded into the front fenders, smoothed mirrors, and molded air inlets just ahead of the rear wheels. Refinished in Horizon Blue Metallic, the car also sports a TechArt rear wing and rides on 19” Champion Motorsports wheels.

On the inside, fixed-back Recaro Pole Position seats are upholstered in Black leather with G Force Racing Gear harnesses anchored to a harness bar. Other upgrades to the interior include carbon-fiber trim on the dashboard, simulated carbon on the steering wheel, and a JVC head unit pushing music to Hertz Mille door speakers and 10” subwoofers behind the seats.

Under the frunk you’ll find a JL Audio amplifier and under the rear decklid, a stock 3.6-liter engine. All show and no go, this Speedster has even less go as it is fitted with Porsche’s four-speed Tiptronic transmission. More Boulevard cruiser than canyon carver here.

Over the last twelve months, 964 Speedsters have averaged just under $200,000 at $195k. But that average includes both 5-speed cars and those equipped with a Tiptronic trans. Tip cars are few and far between with only one other car on offer in the last five years, a 67,000-mile example that failed to sell at a high bid of $89,500 earlier this year.

Just as rare are comps for other Strosek Speedsters with the only other one I could find being a 5,000-mile 1994 Strosek Mega Speedster that brought $265,000 at Mecum’s Kissimmee sale in January. That being said, the fact that this 56,000-mile Tiptronic example sold for $168,000 is quite impressive. Well sold for this ‘90s icon.


There are many Porsche Centers here in the US, and then there are PORSCHE Centers. Those who have a deep-rooted passion for the history of the marque that shows through everything they do, especially their choice of inventory. And Porsche Salt Lake City is one such PORSCHE Center. Serving the Salt Lake Valley since 1958 as one of the first Porsche dealers in the United States, a quick browse of their inventory lets one know just how dedicated to the brand this group of Porsche enthusiasts is.

Take for example this 1993 964 Carrera RS 3.8. Produced as the base to homologate Porsche’s legendary 3.8 RSR race car, the Carrera RS 3.8 was the ultimate evolution of the standard RS as it shed around 600 lbs of weight while increasing horsepower to 300 for a most visceral driving experience. And with only 55 units produced, you’ll be hard-pressed to find another for sale on the showroom floor of another Porsche Center.
