2019 Porsche 911 Speedster Spotted on Nurburgring, Shows Awesome Soundtrack

With the 2019 Porsche 911 Speedster having been all but revealed (the concept even made its dynamic debut at the Goodwood Festival of Speed), Zuffenhausen engineers are currently polishing the final details of the limited edition.

Of course, the testing mentioned above involves Nurburgring blitzing and this is precisely what brought us here. A prototype of the German hooning machine was recently spotted doing its thing on the Green Hell and you'll be able to check it out in the clip at the bottom of the page.

And since the Speedster is basically a Cabriolet incarnation of the GT3 with a fancier upper side, the soundtrack of the thing is phenomenal. After all, we're talking about a 4.0-liter flat-six that can sing up to 9,000 rpm.

Nevertheless, the exact output of the motor hasn't been announced, so, if you're the kind who enjoys betting, now would be a good time to get your kicks - will it be 500 hp as in the GT3, the GT3 RS' 520 hp or perhaps even more?

Interestingly, Porsche was recently spotted testing a car that looks more like an actual GT3 Cabriolet than a Speedster (here are the spyshots). You see, the test car packs the standard cloth top and rear deck of the first, instead of using the sculpted units of the second.

In our book, a GT3 Cabrio would make for an awesome proposal. That's because the formula, which would be pretty similar to that of the 911 Speedster, would allow a greater number of Porschephiles to enjoy it.

After, only a limited number of Speedsters will be built, while the price of the special might make one weak in the knees.

This might just be the swansong of the 991 generation, with the 992 Neunelfer having already been spied testing in uncovered form, as we discussed earlier this week.
