Porsche creating new 911 Carrera Supersport

Porsche 2-7 RS 1

Porsche is getting busy on a couple of projects at the moment but none more interesting than a possible retro-inspired 911 Carrera Supersport. According to the mill of rumors Porsche is preparing a new 911 Carrera Supersport a throwback to the 1984 911 Carrera Supersport. The original Supersport was a standard 911 with some of the 911 Turbo model’s cosmetic and performance enhancements, such as the Turbo tail, suspension, and brakes.

The one supposedly being readied for next year will take a current 2S model dressed in the 4S widebody flanks, throw in GT3-style front and rear bumpers, a double-bubble roof, and even a ducktail spoiler reminiscent of the 2.7 RS.

The engine will receive Porsche’s factory powerkit that boosts horsepower and top speed, the wheels will be modern variations on the classic Fuchs units, and the interior should be finished in brown leather. Price for the “very limited edition” model is expected to be in the neighborhood of £135K, so get saving.
