Happy 70th, Porsche. Here’s a New Concept Car!


Over the weekend, Porsche all around the world celebrated their 70th anniversary, when Ferdinand Porsche produced the 1948 Porsche 356. To honor this milestone, Porsche debuted a new concept car called the 911 Speedster Concept. 

Essentially an open-top 911 GT3, it has a very spartan interior with carbon fiber seats, no creature comfort, and many miles of the sky on top of you. Powering this beast is the same 4 liter flat six engine with 493hp, a manual slushbox and everything you expect from a GT3. Classic details include the Fuchs-style wheels, tape-designed headlamps which rally racers did back then to prevent breakage, bullet mirrors, hood-mounted fuel filter, and the tan interior.

No announcement on release just yet, but cross fingers it’s very soon.
