Good news for drop-top fans: the Porsche 911 Speedster gets the green light and will go into production during the first half of 2019.

The sports car marque revealed another gorgeous Speedster Concept at the 2019 Paris Motor Show.

It follows the silver and white 911 Speedster that was unleashed back in June during Porsche's big 70th anniversary shindig in Stuttgart.

Porsche plans to build exactly 1,948 Speedsters as a reference to the first Porsche 356 that officially rolled out way back in 1948. The 356 Speedster wouldn't arrive until 1955, but would become one of the model line's most sought after variants.

The two-seater's body is based on the 911 Carrera 4 Cabriolet and sits on a 911 GT3 chassis with cross-spoke 21-inch wheels similar to ones found on the RSR and GT3 R race cars.

The concept packs a 4.0-liter flat-six engine that delivers over 500 hp and comes mated to a six-speed manual transmission. Porsche says the 911 Speedster will be the first car to be offered with its new Heritage Design Packages.

The open-top car sports carbon-fiber fenders, "Talbot"-shaped mirrors, titanium tailpipes, and black-chrome and platinum fuel tank cap on the center of the hood. Window frames have been shortened and there's a double-bubble cover behind the seats.

Instead of a drop-top, the Speedster comes with a Tonneau cover that is attached with Tenax buttons. If it rains, we recommend faster speeds and a full face helmet. Inside the cockpit is a beautiful black leather interior with red highlights.

Porsche says the Speedster's Guards Red paint is a throwback to the 1988 911 Speedster. Too cool.
