When Paul Deutschman was commissioned to design a Porsche Speedster of the future, the automotive world took notice. The resulting design called the Spexter appeared on the covers of both Motor Trend and Sports Car Illustrated magazines. Time has shown that the Spexter correctly forecast design direction at Porsche.
Freeman Thomas- designer of the Audi TT and the new Beetle- “found the Spexter among the best interpretations to date of the Speedster theme” and wrote a 6 page illustrated styling analysis of the Spexter for Sports Car Illustrated magazine.
The Spexter is on display at the Petersen Automotive Museum in Los Angeles.
