Good news for the automobile aficionados with a tilt towards super luxury cars! A German newspaper has quoted Porsche CEO Matthias Mueller as saying that the automaker has plans to revive its classic 550 Spyder.
Mueller also said the revamped 2-seat racer cabriolet will probably sell for a lot less than the Porsche’s current Boxster model. He has been quoted as saying:
“I can imagine that such a modern version of the famous ‘James Dean’ Porsche would be well-received by our customers.”
There were earlier reports about the carmaker mulling over the launch of a new entry-level Porsche model that could be positioned just below their flagship Boxster.
The model is expected to hit the street during the summer of 2014. We expect the car to come with a mid-mounted turbocharged 1.6 liter power train that would provide a power of 200 PS (147 kW / 197 bhp).
The entry-level Porsche concept is estimated to cost the buyer around €39,000. This, in fact, would be €8,000 less than the modern Boxster. Awesome, isn’t it?
