The very first vehicle to bear the Porsche name — the 356 Roadster — debuted on June 8, 1948. This car’s 75th birthday is fast approaching, and the automaker intends to celebrate with an undisclosed design study, he teased earlier at Porsche today Newsroom page on Instagram.
The teaser video reveals the secret Porsche under a silk sheet, sitting between a 356 hardtop and that very first 356 roadster. It also appears on a pendant pulled by what appears to be it Porsche Vision racing service concept van. The silhouette under this sheet is all P-Auto, with fastback styling and a sloping front end. The concept looks like it’s about the size of an early one 911, although there are some distinctly modern design cues. The fender/fender tops have a crease at the top, ÓÌ la Vision Spyder Design study, and a clearly visible diffuser protrudes from under the rear bumper.
Plus, your guess is as good as ours as to what Porsche’s stylists came up with. Some commentators speculate that the vehicle will make use of an all-electric powertrain, while others hope the opposite is the case. Many of Porsche’s design studies in recent years have made use of powertrains with internal combustion engines – the 904 Living Legend and its V2 engine come to mind – but with all-electric versions of the Macan and 718 Along the way, it seems likely that this new concept will follow suit.
Porsche also didn’t reveal when it would unveil its latest design, but hopefully we won’t have to wait too long. After all, we’re not the patient types.
