Porsche has unveiled the 911 Speedster Concept as part of the car maker’s 70th Anniversary celebrations. While there is no concrete info if it will be put into production, Porsche has described it as “potential series-production version”.
The body of the concept has been borrowed from the 911 Carrera 4 Cabriolet but the but the fenders, bonnet and rear cover are made from light weight carbon fibre concept material. It is finished in GT silver and white inspired fro the older race cars. It also features a central fuel tank cap in the middle of the bonnet. The wide B pillars and the rear feature gold plated Speedster lettering. The ORVMs feature the classic Talbot shape.
The chassis of the Speedster comes from the 911 GT3. There are 21 inch Fuchs design alloy wheels with centre locks and titanium tail pipes as well. The concept uses a 6 cylinder flat six engine that develops more than 500 horsepower and revs up to 9,000 rpm. The engine is mated to a six speed manual gearbox.
If the concept does go into production, the actual car may not be revealed until 2019. If it does see the light of day, it could definitely have a limited run production.
