For illustration, the entrance apron has been lifted from the 911 GT3 even though the rear apron and spoiler occur from the 911 GT3 Touring and the carbon fiber wings have been are from the 911 R. The most eye-catching exterior component is the rear decklid with two big buttresses that assistance the Speedster appear even much better than the GT3 – at minimum to our eyes.
