Porsche has used the 2018 Paris Motor Show to confirm that its 911 Speedster concept will reach production and will launch in the first half of 2019.
The Porsche Speedster Concept was revealed during the brand's 70th birthday and at the 2018 Paris Motor Show, the Stuttgart-based manufacturer confirmed that it will be going into production with a second Speedster Concept study which you see here. Customers will be getting their cars in 2019 and there'll be exactly 1 948 units sold. 1948 was the rear that Porsche 356 Number 1 was given its operating license.
This concept is all about the art of driving. The body is based on a 911 Carrera 4 Cabriolet, the Speedster makes extensive use of carbon fibre and is underpinned by the chassis from the 911 GT3. The exhaust is a titanium setup, while the powertrain features a six-speed manual gearbox and a naturally-aspirated flat-six motor producing around 370 kW.
