We can't wait to see what this is all about.
Last month, Porsche teased a new electric vehicle that would be debuted at the IAA motor show in Munich. The teaser revealed very little besides headlights that appeared to have been inspired by those of the Porsche Taycan, albeit with a far sleeker and even more modern twist. We speculated that it may point to a new Taycan variant that Porsche was said to be working on; now it seems that the teaser was pointing to a concept not meant for series production. The German automaker has today announced that its new concept will provide a "spectacular insight into the future of motorsport" and better yet, it's going to be revealed online a day before its in-the-metal debut at the aforementioned motor show.
Porsche says that motorsport is the catalyst for innovation and has always been used to showcase the brand's "pioneering spirit, its research and development, and its passion for state-of-the-art mobility." What this means is that the "futuristic concept study" we'll be seeing will foreshadow technology that we might expect to use in everyday cars of the future.
The new concept will be unveiled via a live stream on Monday, 6 September at 15:00 CEST (09:00 eastern time) before the public debut at the Munich Auto Show, which takes place from 7-12 September. The presentation should be quite exciting and will feature some famous faces.
Two-time overall winner of Le Mans and Porsche brand ambassador Timo Bernhard will take part, as will actor Patrick Dempsey, whose racing successes behind the wheel of a Porsche 911 RSR make him the closest thing to a modern-day Steve McQueen we can hope for. If you'd like to check it out, Porsche's various social media channels including YouTube will host the presentation. At the IAA show, another famous face will be present in actor Michael Fassbender, who has also been a Porsche racer, competing in the European Le Mans Series for the past two years in his own 911 RSR after previously campaigning in a Ferrari 488 Challenge race car.
Other attractions at the stand will include driving simulators, the Porsche Turbo Charging rapid charging park, test drives in the Taycan, and other activities including test rides of Porsche e-bikes.
