New Porsche Speedster takes to the ‘Ring

Porsche may have revealed its new Speedster concept ahead of its likely public debut at the Goodwood Festival of Speed, but this week the car has taken to the Nürburgring Nordschleife to complete some fast laps. As you can see from our pictures, Porsche has been taking these laps very seriously indeed, the concept car appearing to be stripped and caged with a Nomex bucket seat fitted too.

Our pictures also provide an opportunity to see the Speedster’s roof up for the first time, which takes a similar appearance to that found on the current Boxster Spyder.

Porsche’s 991 Speedster concept features a 500hp, 4.0-litre engine taken from its GT3 sibling, with a compulsory six-speed manual transmission. Its likely unveiling as a fully-fledged production version will take place at Rennsport Reunion in September.
