The Porsche 911 Speedster concept car is expected to receive the green-light for production within weeks. The car is on display at the Goodwood motor show, the central theme of which is Porsche's 70th anniversary.
Although the Stuttgart company has stopped short of confirming the 911 Speedster will be built, it describes the concept as a “potential series-production version”. Prototypes have already been spotted testing in Germany.
Autocar has learned that a final decision is now imminent, with a positive one expected. It should then be on sale within the year, in a production run of less than 2000 units but greater than the 356 units built of the previous 997-generation Speedster.
The Speedster, which would be a swansong for the current 991-generation 911, is the combined work of Porsche's GT division and its Exclusive one, mixing its finest engineering department with the one responsible for bespoke designs.
