Porsche redesigned the 911 in the retro speedster

Company Porsche has prepared for the 70-year-old anniversary a concept car 911 Speedster. The usual 911 stylized as a historic Porsche 356 1500 Speedster – Shortened the frame of the windshield, made behind the seats a convex cover-bubble. The concept received a two-tone color with the starting numbers on the doors.

The machine is designed in the center of Porsche Motorsport – the division responsible for racing cars and the most extreme of the serial Porsche: 911 GT2 RS and GT3 RS. Speedster equipped with a four-liter “opposition” with a capacity of 500 horsepower from 911 GT3 RS, which “turns” to 9000 rpm.

While 911 Speedster has the status of a concept car, but soon, for sure, will turn into a small-scale modification. Porsche says that it can be submitted by the end of this year: a decision on this will be made in the coming months.

The wide body of the concept is borrowed from the all-wheel drive Porsche 911 Carrera 4 Cabriolet, but the wings, front cover and rear lining are made of carbon fiber. The chassis is entirely taken from the 911 GT3, Fuchs wheels – with a central nut fastening.

The car is strictly two-seater: in place of the rear seats there is an aerodynamic cap of characteristic shape (“double bubble”, “double bubble”) hiding the security arc. Instead of a convertible top, a light awning with fastening on the buttons is used.

Navigation system and radio are absent, there is also no air conditioner. The bucket seats combine the upholstery of light brown leather in a retro-spirit with an ultra-modern carbon fiber skeleton.

The two-color silver-white body painting is a reference to early Porsche racing. And the whole car is decorated with a lot of retro parts – this, for example, polished fuel tank plug in the center of the front hood or teardrop-shaped exterior mirrors.
