French automaker Vintech is reviving the Porsche 550 Spyder with its P550 tribute at the upcoming event at Pebble Beach on August 17.
The body will be constructed entirely of carbon fiber, and will sit on an all-new chassis. Power for the model will come from a four-cylinder 3-liter engine with a fan styled after that of a Carrera’s. The motor is going to be coupled with a five-speed transmission, and make upwards of 260hp, and with an expected curb weight of about 1,212 lbs, it should have a nice 0-60mph time, as well.
So far, Vintech is still piecing the model together, so more information should pop up shortly after the show.
