It is also important that at the current presentation of the red speedster, Porsche confirmed its serial release – the concept will indeed go into a series, even if only in 1948 copies.

The Porsche 911 Speedster is based on the 911 Carrera 4 Cabriolet generation 991, but the powerplant and transmission are from the 911 GT3 version: it’s a 4-liter, 500-horsepower, naturally-aspirated six-speed manual and rear-wheel drive. Body – new, with carbon fiber panels, lower and more inclined windshield, gas tank neck in the middle of the trunk lid and a removable hard roof instead of a soft top.
