The Porsche 911 Speedster Concept: open-top, pure and with over 500 hp
Porsche will be rewarding itself with an excellent present for the 70th anniversary of the brand’s sports cars: the 911 Speedster Concept, a road-ready study of an exciting open-top sports car. The unique model forges a link between the very first Porsche 356 ‘No. 1’ Roadster, which received its operating permit on June 8, 1948, and the Porsche cars of today. With its pure concept and historically accurate execution, the 911 Speedster concept reflects the essence of the Stuttgart-based sports car manufacturer with precision. A pure driving experience is the main emphasis of the car, as such; the drive technology under the two-tone shell of the concept study is derived from the current GT models. It was developed at the Porsche Motorsport Centre, which is the birthplace of the 911 GT2 RS and the GT3 RS.
The 911 Speedster Concept celebrated its world premiere as part of the official ‘70 years Porsche sportscar’ anniversary celebrations in Zuffenhausen. The concept study offers a glimpse of a potential series-production version, although this model may not be presented until 2019. A decision on whether to move ahead will be made in the coming months.
