Porsche has unveiled a new concept car, a great way to mark the carmaker's 70th year celebration. The new 911 Speedster Concept is a road-ready study of an open-top sports car. It’s also a preview of a potential series-production car derived from the current GT models. Though it might not be presented until 2019, let's take a glimpse at its pictures before the project gets a go ahead.

It's a unique model that forges a link between the very first Porsche 356 'No. 1' Roadster. This one has received its operating permit on June 8, 1948, and is one of the Porsche cars of today.

This 911 Speedster was developed at the Porsche Motorsport Centre. This is the same place where the 911 GT2 RS and the GT3 R were born.

Design-wise, it seems to be a simple formula - tweak the windscreen for a more aggressive angle, eliminate the vestigial rear seats and add a new double bubble cover. But, there's more to this.

Sure the Speedster incorporates this idea and drops the electric roof. However, the cover in place of the 911’s vestigial rear seats is made of carbon fibre.

Look at the way the traditional mirrors have given way to Talbot-style racing mirrors. It looks damn cool with the GT silver and white contrasting paint scheme.

The big number 70 on each door above the Porsche lettering is obviously to remind you of Porsche’s seventieth anniversary. It might come across as too loud for some or tastefully done for some.

Porsche has also modified the headlamps of the car with a cover that’s reminiscent of old racing headlights. Taped to prevent the glass from shattering.

The cabin features full bucket seats adorned in light brown Aniline leather with carbon-fibre construction adding appeal to the interior.
