Demonstrating his point, he highlighted the active aerodynamic elements in the front splitter, which move independently at speed and in cornering to improve airflow, while a movable spoiler at the rear promotes downforce.
The headlights, meanwhile, feature a new interpretation of Porsche’s recognisable ‘four-point’ light signature and are mounted at the bottom of the front wings for a clean, flush look that apes the 909 Bergspyder of 1968. The concept features a canopy opening, rather than conventional doors, while the interior is finished in the same colour as the exterior and the seats are mounted directly to the monocoque – all features that interior designer Doeke de Walle said give you the feeling of being truly “inside the car”.
Other motorsport-inspired features include an adjustable pedal box, exposed carbonfibre bodywork and an Alcantara-wrapped, yoke-style wheel.
The transparent gauge cluster, meanwhile, houses a futuristic reimagining of Porsche’s classic circular dials and is equipped with holographic projector technology that de Walle said lets it “fully use the possibilities of the digital world”.
Notably, he added that the steering wheel houses haptic physical controls for several key functions, because Porsche doesn’t want to “go fully digital” with its future sports cars.
