Revenge of the Carrera GT?

Iranian designer creates swoopy Porsche concept. Well, it’s a hell of a lot better than the Panamera

Straight off the bat, this isn't an official Porsche concept. Sorry.

It's a hypothetical Porsche supercar from Iranian designer Emil Baddal, and we reckon the guys in Zuffenhausen could do worse than take a bit of inspiration from our Persian friend.

They're hardly on a hot design streak at the moment, are they? The 911 is fine, but they pretty much got that one nailed back in the mid-60s, while the Cayenne remains a visual abomination and the Panamera hasn't exactly wowed aesthetes since its introduction earlier this year.

OK, those side scoops might be a bit much - according to Top Gear's scientific calculations, you could lose an entire child down there - but we're loving the high-haunched side profile and the mad diffuser-filled rear end. Kinda Veyron... but more so.

The reality of a Porsche hypercar might not be so far away. Back in May, we reported rumours that Porsche might be creating a road-going version of its Le Mans winning RS Spyder, effectively the successor to the Carrera GT.

There has still been no official word from Porsche on the rumours, but we're keeping our fingers crossed. And if you fancy making it look just a little bit like this, gents, we'll be plenty happy...

Now share it...
