Porsche has confirmed that the 911 Speedster concept will enter production as a limited-run swansong to the current, 991-generation 911.
The brand will produce 1948 examples of the Speedster, which was previewed by a previous concept as well as a more recent red example shown at the Paris motor show (pictured).
A heritage design pack adds retro-inspired flourishes to the car, and Porsche hinted that the packs would be available on other models.
New 21in cross-spoke wheels feature and are likely to be carried over to the production version, as is the car’s 4.0-litre flat six engine, borrowed from the GT3, and manual gearbox.
The first of the two design studies was put on display at Goodwood as part of Porsche"s 70th anniversary celebrations, while prototypes have been seen undergoing testing in Germany.
