New Porsche Gran Turismo concept hints at the brand’s future in electric vehicles

Demonstrating his point, he emphasized the active aero elements in the front splitter, which move independently at speed and through turns to improve airflow, while a movable rear spoiler promotes support.

The headlights, meanwhile, feature a new take on Porsche’s recognizable “four-point” light signature and are mounted at the bottom of the front fenders for a clean, flush look that resembles the 909 Bergspyder from 1968. The concept includes a canopy opening, rather than conventional doors, while the interior is the same color as the exterior and the seats are mounted directly to the monocoque – all features which interior designer Doeke de Walle says , make you feel like you’re really “inside the car”.

Other motorsport-inspired features include an adjustable crankset, exposed carbon fiber bodywork, and an Alcantara-wrapped caliper-style wheel.

The transparent gauge cluster, meanwhile, houses a futuristic reimagining of classic Porsche circular dials and is fitted with holographic projector technology that de Walle says allows it to “fully utilize the possibilities of the digital world.”

Notably, he added that the steering wheel houses haptic physical controls for several key functions, as Porsche does not want to “go fully digital” with its future sports cars.
