Baby Porsche Rendered, Entry-Level GT Sportscar Looks Extra Fit

If you're looking for a way to describe GT Porsches, you can always think about the way in which these velocity toys dominate the racetrack, despite not packing the most powerful punch of their segment(s). And since some of you weren't impressed with the soft look of the last baby Porsche rendering we discussed, I've returned with a more muscular machine.
Yes, we're talking about the entry-level Zuffenhausen sportscar that was supposed to come out a decade ago, but never happened (more on this below).

However, while last time around we talked about a not-so-menacing machine, which, again, some of you compared to the Audi TT, the double-trouble pixel play staring at us portrays a much more menacing toy - you can thank Canadian designer Drake Nolte for these rendering.

The silhouettes we have here aren't necessarily the ones that demand the conclusion above, but the aero elements around the nose easily fill those shoes.

After all, why think of an entry-level Porsche sportscar as something that wouldn't land in the hands of the GT division?

Sure, it took Porsche three/two generations to give the Boxster/Cayman proper GT hardware, but things are moving much faster these days. For one thing, we have to keep in mind the carmaker is probably working on a Cayman GT4 RS.

And while the horsepower would be capped to prevent the baby model(s) from cannibalizing models like the 718, the lightweight construction of the first might mean these would have the most responsive handling of the whole lineup.

Sadly, we have no clues on a potential return of the project - the entry-level Porsche sportscar, which was part of a greater plan involving Volkswagen and Audi sister models, was shut down back in 2014.

And with electrification taking over, we might never get to see such a featherweight toy with the good old suck-squeeze-bang-blow vibe, so all we can do is dream and, of course, brew our own.
