Porsche celebrates 70 years with its new Speedster Concept - Acquire

You can't talk Porsche without talking about their rich history in building some of the most iconic roadsters in the world and today, the company reveals its latest open-top project, a modern Speedster Concept. The drop-top features a number of lightweight enhancements such as a lightweight tonneau cover, carbon fiber bucket seats, fenders, truck lid, and rear decklid.

The chassis of the car is dervied from the 911 GT3 and also features 21-inch Fuchs-style wheels with center locks for the first time ever, titanium tailpipes, and a six-speed transmission. Power will come from a 500-hp flat-six, which will be able to rev up to 9,000 rpm. No official word yet on whether this will become a production model, but it has been reported on various automotive sites that Speedster mules have been spotted in the wild so here's hoping.
