- Porsche Speedster Concept is a one-off and might go into a limited production run
- Was built to celebrate 70 years of Porsche with styling cues from the 356 Speedster
The Porsche Speedster had our jaws dragging on the floor when the retro-styled 911 was announced a few weeks ago. Celebrating 70 years of Porsche, this one-off concept made its dynamic debut at the Goodwood Festival of Speed last weekend.
Built on the Porsche 911, the Speedster harks back to the first Porsche – the 356, that too the iconic soft-top Speedster. Painted in the two-tone silver and white paint-scheme, it revers the Porsche race cars from the 1950s with the mid-mounted fuel cap on the hood. The racing number 70 indicates the seven decades of Porsche’s engineering genius and the double-bubble cover in the back is inspired by the original Speedster including the lightweight tonneau material used for it.
Porsche hasn’t confirmed yet if this one-off concept will go into production but prototypes of the same have already been spotted testing. Which means, there might be a limited run of cars built for some invite-only special customers with the deliveries scheduled for 2019. For those customers, price certainly would not be a criteria, especially for a modern factory-built Porsche that would stand out even in the period-car meets.
