Porsche is commemorating its 75th anniversary with the Vision 357 Concept in 2023. The concept will be displayed to the public at the Berlin event, honoring 75 years of the company's sports cars. Porsche intends to showcase the new concept at more international events throughout the year in addition to the Volkswagen Group's Drive Forum display, which debuts on January 27 and runs until mid-February. The Porsche Vision 357 uses the company's first car - the 356 for the design reference. Speculations are rife that Style Porsche Team has modified 356's design language for the new concept. According to the company, Vision 357 retains the dimensions of the iconic 356 while incorporating futuristic styling cues.

Porsche 356 And Vision 357

The concept is sleek, and designers have hidden the door handles in the rear side glass. In the Vision 357 concept,  instead of side mirrors, cameras have been used. Porsche has concealed the lights at the front and rear behind perforations in the body panel. Interestingly, it has incorporated the third brake light into the rear grille motif, similar to the 356.

A split windscreen with a bar running down the centre was standard in the early 356s. The Vision 357 doesn't have a similar accent, but experimentation has been done with the glass, it is now wrapped around the black A-pillars to combine the three window pieces into one, simulating a helmet visor. At the corners, are 20-inch magnesium wheels with carbon-fiber hubcaps.

Outside, Porsche has applied a two-tone paint finish, with Grivola Gray Metallic covering the front bumper and Ice Gray Metallic enveloping the majority of the vehicle. The doors and hood have large "75" decals, and the front fenders and rear fascia have "357" stickers.

Mechanically, the Porsche Vision 357 Concept will mirror the 718 Cayman GT4 RS, recently unveiled in India at the company's Festival of Dreams event. The concept will get the same naturally aspirated 4.0-litre flat-six engine as the new GT4 RS that can produce 486bhp. Porsche claims to develop a mid-mounted engine to support synthetic fuels.
