Porsche showed the showroom of the exclusive sports car Project GoldAugust 5, 2018
Earlier we already wrote that the German company Porsche is preparing a new model based on the 911 Turbo S sports car. However, the car, called Project Gold, will be completely redesigned. And all the work is done manually.
Porsche again published a video with the mysterious Project Gold model, and this time the company gives us a chance to look a little at the salon. The clip also confirms our previous suspicions about a turbocharged car.
Seats Project Gold have a finish of perforated black leather. The stitches are made with a golden thread, corresponding to the name, and the inscription “Turbo” will be embroidered on the headrest.
Recall that the first teaser Porsche does not disclose any details about the project Gold. The official video showed a body in a bare metal that looked like a 993 generation Porsche 911 Turbo S. However, the sketches suggested that the company could change the back to create a smoother roof than the original somewhat rounded shape.
The second teaser demonstrated the wheels of Project Gold. Light alloy wheels with five spokes are similar to the design on the 993-gen Turbo S. The wheels are distinguished by black color on which thin gold strips stand out.
Unfortunately, Porsche retains the rest of the information about Project Gold in secret. The company does not even say when a unique model can make its debut. We know that the debut will take place this year, as the car is being prepared in honor of the 70th anniversary of the first sports car Porsche, which was released in 1948.
If Porsche really uses the 993-gen Turbo S to create Project Gold, we should be prepared that the car will not be produced serially. Since the production of this model was stopped about 20 years ago, and all of them were produced 345 units. Naturally, there are very few live copies left, and the model collected in hand will stand in the museum or sold at auction in a single copy.
For everyone else who wants to celebrate the company’s anniversary by purchasing a new car, it remains to wait for the 911 Speedster. This model will receive a filling from the Porsche GT3 and will probably be limited to a run of 1948 units.
