Gone are the luxuries and technology normally found in a Porsche. Everything from the Satnav, air con and radio have been scrapped in a bid to save weight.

The 911 is made lighter with the fitment of carbon-fibre seats as well as lightweight panels.

Forward momentum comes in the form of a flat-six engine that produces over 372kW (500bhp), while the number '70' adds a bit of exclusivity.
