The Porsche 911 Speedster concept, unveiled in an updated form at the Paris motor show, is to become a production limited edition.

Porsche will produce just 1948 examples of the car to celebrate the brand’s 70th anniversary.

First revealed as a heritage concept in June and publicly unveiled at the Goodwood Festival of Speed in July, the 911 Speedster is based on the 991 range and is expected to be the final car in that line-up.

It is an open-top two-seater powered by one of the 911’s signature flat-six engines with 500hp- on tap. Porsche is currently giving few details about the engine work that will take place but the unit is expected to be an uprated version of the 911 GT3 unit.

Porsche has used much of its motorsport experience in creating the Speedster. The wings, front and rear hoods are made in carbon-fibre, clothing a chassis taken from the GT3. Drivetrain and chassis are developed over the stock car and the exhaust includes titanium tailpipes.

Body changes include shortened window frames and smaller side windows, along with a very much motorsport-inspired rear bonnet with ‘double-bubble’ cowls behind each occupant. A button-on tonneau cover is supplied instead of the usual convertible soft-top.

The car debuts what Porsche is describing as its ‘Heritage Design Packages,’ designed to allow 911 owners to add more personalisation to their cars. These include 21-inch diameter centre-lock wheels that recall the brand’s race cars such as the 911 RSR and GT3 R.

Other motorsport-inspired touches include tinted daytime running lights and a fuel tank cap mounted centrally in the car’s bonnet. Like the bespoke-shaped door mirrors this is finished in black-chrome and platinum.

The car is finished in Guard’s Red paintwork with the perforated black leather interior, this including red detailing.

The 911 Speedster is expected to be available in the first half of 2019. Price has not been revealed but based on a previous Speedster line produced by Porsche industry sources are predicting a cost in excess of £150,000.
