This is a 911 gone techno.
The world of the automobile is undergoing changes never before seen, and leading manufacturers are fighting tooth and nail to come up with the latest and greatest advancements in-car technology. Porsche, known for building some of the world's best sports cars, is at the forefront of this technological race with its all-electric Taycan, but it also clings to the past in certain aspects of its vehicle design process. Just look at the 911, which has made use of the same evolutionary looks for decades, although at least there are rumors of a hybrid version in future. To show what the future of the 911 could look like, designers Hussain Almossawi and Marin Myftiu have come up with the Project 411 Concept; a utopian look at where Porsche could be heading in the near future.
The 411 Concept might look rather radical, but it keeps with Porsche's general rule of efficiency over flair. For example, the car features no body cuts, and the front end has a definite twist of 911 in its DNA. The idea behind the car was to design a machine ready for the autonomous highways of tomorrow, where cars will easily exceed 250 mph, making it a luxury highway cruiser, instead of a lap record-breaking hypercar. In the world imagined for the Project 411 Concept, cars will make use of on-the-go inductive charging which would mean inductive charging strips incorporated into the road itself, allowing the car to carry a much smaller battery.
What is for certain is that this ride looks pretty spectacular: the front of the car features vertically stacked headlights for minimal aerodynamic impact and a "shrink-wrapped" body style which also keeps drag to a minimum, while simultaneously looking cool as hell. The rear features a taillight assembly that "creates a tunnel of infinite light," which speaks to the all-electric future envisioned for this concept. The interior of the Project 411 Concept is just as futuristic and features a low roofline and lots of legroom for a low-slung but comfortable driving position. The entire cockpit is covered in bands of light that create a stunning effect and ties the overall concept together. Porsche is planning on electrifying more of its models in the near future, so a 411 might not be too far off.
