The Future of the Porsche Speedster

If there’s one thing you need in your life in the future, it’s this Porsche 357 Speedster. The rendering comes from Clement Lacour and hints at what the future of the Porsche speedster could be. It’s absolutely gorgeous, and we hope Porsche takes it into serious consideration.

Lacour looked to the past to make a car for the future. The 357 Speedster he created takes cues from the original Porsche Speedster and the Porsche 356. The car is extremely smooth with bulging fender flares and some seriously sensual curves. It somehow blends the past, present, and future of automotive styling together into one absolutely stunning car.

The speedster vehicle type has been making a bit of a comeback in the last couple of years. We can point to the Ferrari Monza SP1 and SP2 as the first two examples, and most recently the Lister Knobbly that we profiled a little while back. Both bring the classic speedster style back into the modern limelight.

Demand for special one-off cars has risen in recent years, and if there was a one-off speedster that we would love to see make it into the world, it would be one like this. If we can’t have a one-off, we want a production model, but we doubt that would happen. Still, it’s nice to look at this 357 Speedster and talk about what could be. Hopefully, Porsche is listening.
