Early February 2023


It’s a bird, it’s a plan, it’s a work of art on wheels

Porsche celebrates 75th anniversary of the 356 with introduction of Vision 357 Concept.  A homage to first roadster bearing Porsche name.  It manages to be a love letter to past while at same time looking forward at what’s to come.  Bloomberg describes as shape a “…coupe body that looks part Panamera, part Nissan 350Z, and is built on a 718 Cayman GT4 RS platform.”  That’s an impressive profile.

I recommend checking out some of the press coverage at Bloomberg, Porsche’s Newsroom, and Autoweek.  It’s worth your time just to see pictures as really does live up to its name, Vision.

Hope to see you out there
