Porsche is celebrating the 70th anniversary of its first car, and what better way to do that than bring out a new concept car: the 911 Speedster Concept. Developed at the Porsche Motorsport Centre, the concept draws inspiration from the very first Porsche 356 ‘No. 1’ Roadster in 1948.
The interior is made entirely of lightweight and sturdy carbon fiber, wrapped in light brown “Cognac 356” leather.
Under the bonnet is a 4-litre six-cylinder flat engine, mated to a six-speed manual gearbox which delivers over 500 hp and reaches speeds of up to 9,000 rpm.
According to Porsche: “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.”
We’d bet the Porsche 911 Speedster it will be in showrooms, although expect a very limited production run.
