The Speeder as a car in GTA 1.
The Speeder as a boat in GTA III.

The Speeder name was originally adopted for a sports car in the original Grand Theft Auto, but was to be later associated with a speed boat in games after GTA III. To date, the Speeder has appeared in the following games:

Description

GTA 1 (as a car)

A Speeder in GTA 1.

The Speeder in GTA 1 is designed as an open-top sports car similar to a Porsche 911 classic, comparable to the game's Porka, Penetrator and Porka Turbo.

As expected from a sports car, the Speeder's performance is considerably good. The car is capable of excellent top speeds, although its acceleration, being only above average, may not take full advantage of it. The car also possess good braking, as well as improved turning and handling, although it has moderate grip. The car's base export value is also high: $1,000 in mint condition.

GTA III — GTA Chinatown Wars (as a boat)

Between GTA III — GTA Chinatown Wars, the Speeder is a speed boat, appearing in every game in the sequence except GTA Advance and GTA IV.

Designed as a lean watercraft, the Speeder is a good boat in terms of handling and speed, being the fastest boat in Grand Theft Auto III and Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories, the third fastest in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City and Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, and the fourth fastest in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories.

It is one of the easiest boats to obtain, and can be found at many docks and ports throughout the cities. In GTA Vice City Stories, this boat is very rare and can only be obtained during the smuggling side-missions.
