Porsche is celebrating 70 years of Porsche sports cars this year and the company has now unveiled a new version of the 911, the Porsche 911 Speedster Concept.
The first Porsche 356 received its operating permit on the 8th of June 1948, 70 years ago and this new Speedster concept has been created in celebration.
The characteristics of the 911 Speedster Concept include the shorter window frame with a more inclined windscreen and correspondingly shortened side windows. These features give the sports car study an even stockier profile with a very low fly line, which is reminiscent of its predecessors such as the Porsche 356 1500 Speedster. A special rear cover made of carbon fibre connects behind the front seats, covering a roll-over protection structure and featuring a ‘double bubble’, a traditional element of this sports car design since the 911 Speedster from 1988. Two contrasting black slats between the ‘humps’ add an aerodynamic touch, and a transparent Plexiglas wind deflector features an engraved ‘70 years of Porsche’ logo.
