Afghan Taliban raise hopes with first-of-its-kind Eid ceasefire
Provincial police spokesperson Enhamuddin Rahmani confirmed the death toll and said eight Taliban fighters were also killed. The Taliban had denounced the gathering, insisting its fight against what it considers are foreign invaders was justified.
Porsche took the wraps off a new concept called the 911 Speedster Concept, to celebrate the original 356's 70th birthday - the first 356 Roadster was licensed and approved for road use on June 8, 1948. The windshield frame is shorter and more steeply raked, and the windows are also shorter. The full bucket seats are made of carbon, and the light brown Aniline leather covers in Cognac 356 pick up on features from the car's classic predecessors. Two contrasting black slats between the "humps" add an aerodynamic touch, and a transparent Plexiglas wind deflector features an engraved "70 years of Porsche" logo. Instead of a convertible top, the Speedster Concept has a tonneau cover to keep out the elements. The two-tone GT Silver Metallic and White paint is a nod to Porsche's early racing colors. Other unique features of the 911 Speedster include a fuel cap located in the front trunk lid, throw-back style side mirrors, Speedster badging and headlight covers with the shape of an "X" in them meant to mimic the tape used to protect the headlights of early race cars. This cover protects the vehicle interior from rain when parked, and is attached using eight Tenax fasteners.
The concept vehicle gets the wide body of the 911 Carrera 4 Cabriolet, although the wings, front bonnet and rear cover of the concept are made of lightweight carbon-fibre composite material.

The Speedster concept puts driving first, and that's evidenced by the fact that Porsche removed the navigation, radio and air conditioning in order to reduce curb weight.
The engine was prepared by the Porsche Motorsport Center in Weissach. The chassis and engine come from the 911 GT3, and the naturally aspirated flat-six delivers more than 500 horsepower and revs up to 9,000 rpm through the six-speed manual transmission, as opposed to the dual-clutch PDK favored by most customers these days.
