Porsche Unveils Future Sports Car June 8

What Do We Think It Could Be?

In honour of its 75th anniversary, Porsche has declared that it will reveal a fresh sportscar on 8th June. Why this particular date? Considering it was on the 8th June of 1948 that the original Porsche 356 roadster had acquired its regular operating license – in other words, the goal of Ferry Porsche to develop his own sports car had at last been achieved.

“At the start, I scanned the horizon and couldn’t find the car I had envisioned, so I figured I’d just build it myself,” Ferry famously declared. Thus began his journey of constructing his own car, a journey that would later become a reality. He used the best materials, the most advanced technologies, and his own passion to create a car that could satisfy his needs. The result was a remarkable vehicle, one that has since become a legendary icon in the automotive world. Ferry’s creation has inspired many others to pursue their own dreams of building their own cars, and his legacy will continue to live on in the hearts and minds of car enthusiasts everywhere.

In a span of three-quarters of a century, Porsche has continually sought to craft something greater than what is already present. To honor this storied legacy, the most fitting tribute would be an expression of that same bold ambition.

Sadly, details on what to expect are scant: “The sports car maker will present their vision of the sports car of the future,” reads the press release. What could this entail?

The words “vision” and “future” have sparked speculation that Porsche may be prepping a concept car; in the past, the German automaker has used the word “vision” for concepts like the Vision 357 Concept. The use of the word “future” implies that the car will be compliant with upcoming emissions regulations, potentially an electric vehicle or one powered by synthetic fuel, which Porsche is a major advocate of.

If electric vehicles are the future, two contenders appear ready to take lead. Porsche is delivering the 718 Cayman and its affiliator, the Boxster, as all-electric cars, and the 911 could possibly soon be Hybridized too. People have been recording spy-shots of the two cars in the last couple of years, yet the concepts of this ‘vision’ does not seem to have been fully realized as production models yet.

It may be merely a chance occurrence that this phrase has employed the term ‘vision’ rather than any other. Nevertheless, it is nonetheless plausible that this was not the result of accident.

A potential alternative is that we may be blessed with an early glimpse of a 918 Spyder successor or at best, a concept car that will contribute to our understanding of what to expect. Porsche feels that battery technology for a new hypercar is still quite far off in the future; notwithstanding, releasing a concept few years prior to it being suitable for manufacturing is quite possible.

What we do know for sure is that the car will be unveiled as part of a live stream that will be broadcast in both German and English. Entitled “75 Years of Porsche Sports Cars”, the one-hour event will delve into five distinct topics: Heritage, Zeitgeist, Performance, Pioneering Spirit, and Dreams. We have reason to believe that the six vehicles in the pictures, which are all covered up, will be disclosed one by one as each theme is discussed, and the concept may only be revealed as part of the final theme.

An affair commences at 3:40 pm Eastern Time on June 8th, and the company’s 75-year commemoration exhibition at the Porsche Museum premieres the day after.
