A new Porsche 911 Speedster model is due to be revealed this summer as a limited-production, high-performance run-out for the 991.2-generation sports car.
Caught on camera under wraps during testing in Germany, the model — recently previewed by the 911 Speedster concept — will sport the distinctive shape of its spiritual predecessors and come with a performance package tuned by Porsche’s GT department.
The concept used running gear from the driver-focused GT3. The production car will follow suit — the fitment of centre-locking wheels on the test car proves this to be true, meaning that the 991-generation Speedster will be the most hardcore to date.
The previous Speedster was based on the 997-generation car and came in Carrera S specification, but the new version is due to have the GT3’s naturally aspirated 4.0-litre flat six engine.
