Porsche Unveils Vision 357 Speedster Concept

What’s Happening

Porsche commemorated the 30th anniversary of the highly-regarded Goodwood Festival of Speed with a striking introduction: the Porsche Vision 357 Speedster. The new concept vehicle, a sibling to the closed Porsche Vision 357, is integral to the sports car maker’s anniversary-year festivities.

Why It Matters

The Porsche Vision 357 Speedster represents a fascinating blend of nostalgic design and modern technology. It pays homage to the iconic Porsche 356 and is technologically underpinned by the 718 GT4 e-Performance. In the context of Porsche’s ongoing transition towards e-mobility, the Vision 357 Speedster is a testament to the brand’s ability to infuse its historic DNA into future-ready designs.

Key Points

Porsche’s new concept car is powered by technology drawn from the Porsche 718 GT4 e-Performance, including electric motors and battery tech from the Mission R and chassis from the 718 GT4 Clubsport. The exterior design showcases a characteristic speedster profile with a shortened windscreen and a one-sided tonneau cover. It embraces a two-color scheme influenced by historical motorsport models, in tones of Marble Grey and Grivelo Grey Metallic. Accents in Miami Blue highlight the distinctive design elements.

The Vision 357 Speedster’s interior exudes purism with its minimalist cockpit, featuring a carbon-weave finish dashboard, CFRP seat shell integrated into the monocoque, and sporty low-slung seating. Cameras replace traditional exterior mirrors, emphasizing the car’s aerodynamic form and futuristic design.

Post its premiere at the Goodwood Festival of Speed, the Vision 357 Speedster is set to appear at the Rennsport Reunion in the USA at the end of September.

Bottom Line

The introduction of the Porsche Vision 357 Speedster epitomizes Porsche’s commitment to pioneering in e-Performance. By preserving the brand’s rich heritage while introducing forward-thinking technologies, Porsche is steadily shaping the future of electric sports cars. The Vision 357 Speedster signifies a turning point in Porsche’s journey, blending its celebrated past with an electrified future, offering enthusiasts a thrilling preview of what’s to come.
