To celebrate 70 years of sports car production, Porsche has unveiled a brand new concept car called the Porsche 911 Speedster. Concept is a term being used relatively lightly here as well, with reports suggesting the car has been tested in Germany and Porsche will be deciding whether or not to put it into production in the next few months.
Let’s hope they do, as clearly they will be able to sell every single one. The chassis of the sleek drop-top “essentially comes from the 911 GT3,” says Porsche, while the six-cylinder engine is capable of “over 500hp and reaches speeds of up to 9,000rpm”. All this sits alongside a six-speed manual gearbox and Fuchs-style 21 wheels with centre-locks. Inside, the interior has been trimmed with Cognac 356 leather and carbon-fibre bucket seats, but you’ll also have nothing to listen to other than the roaring engine, as the sound system, navigation, and air-conditioning systems have all been removed to cut down on weight.
Stay tuned for more details in the coming months about release.
