2014 Porsche 550

Volkswagen’s predicted domination of the automotive world just launched its next attack with three production versions of the Volkswagen Bluesport concept. According to Volkswagen, the BlueSport will see three different levels of performance illustrated in three different badges: Volkswagen , Audi , and Porsche . It can go without saying that the Porsche model will be the most powerful and, up until now, it was just known as the "baby Boxster ." Well, that baby Boxster has finally been named. Say hello to the future Porsche 550 .

The "550" name was first used in 1953 when Porsche unveiled a sports car inspired by the legendary 356 . At that time, the 550 was not considered a successor for the 356, but Porsche’s future 550 will more than likely carry that title. The new 550 will be the first model to be built on Porsche’s new sports car architecture and will be offered with a mid-mounted, turbocharged 1.6-liter engine that will deliver around 200 HP. This engine will be mated to a dual-clutch seven speed transmission.

The future 550 will be launched in 2014 and, on the European market, will be priced about €8,000 ($11,500 at the current exchange rates) less than the current Boxster . That difference accounts for about 20% of the current Boxster’s price tag, which means our fellow Americans will have to pay about $38,000 to purchase it.

UPDATE 09/30/2011: British magazine CAR reports that the upcoming Porsche 550 will feature a new trademark horizontally opposed four-cylinder engine developing a total of 210 HP and 215 lb-ft of torque. If Porsche decides to create a more powerful version for the 550, that would mean it will use a 2.5 liter flat four turbo engine that delivers a total of 360 HP and 350 lb-ft.

Stay tuned for more details on the 2014 Porsche 550.

porsche 550 generated again it is more like the sports car but why is the 2014 porsche 550 should be less powerful cant you produce the car with 450bhp

2014 Porsche 550 is powered by engines that give it good performance. It looks more attractive and elegant. This new Porsche provides the driver and the passengers a good sensation of comfort.

Porsche cars always has the same design and platform most especially their headlights, but they were all kinds of pricey. Anyway, I’m still impressed with the looks of this 550 and with its impressive engine.

It seems that the fuel crisis has made a huge impact not only with the buyers but as well as the manufacturer. I have seen a lot of smaller versions coming out recently.

One thing that I can say is that this one is so 1960’s. But I definitely mean that in a very positive way. I really love how they could retain the looks of this car.

Pretty surprising that they are selling this one at that price. I thought that the 550 would actually go off at a higher price. Well, I think that this one is a good thing though.

I am not really that surprised that they would price it at just that, considering that the engine that they have included is quite small. However, that one is really no problem at all.

So, this is the “baby Boxster” that they are talking about? Well now, it actually does look very good, especially with the vintage feel that they have added to it. Just too bad that the engine is a bit small.

Yeah, I have to say that the speed performance of the car is impressive. I wonder if they are going to make this vehicle into production? Anyway, I must say that I’m also fond with its exterior detailing.

Hello, future Porshce 550! smiley I’m so glad to know that it is a legendary inspired in 356, and I must say that it is really very cool on its looks, and I’m already pleased with its powerful engine!

I love the fact that they use an impressive and powerful engine with this Porsche. It could surely have a great speed performance which only gives me an idea that it is so fun to drive with!

Yeah! So far, this Porsche 550 is the most fabulous roadster today in spite of having only a simple styling. However, I wonder if what its interior can offer? Well, I hope that it is impressive as well.

Porsche 550 is not the most fabulous roadster today, but I must say that I would still prefer simple style of this Porsche than to its competitor. Anyway, I’m also satisfied with its engine output.

Porsche 550 is truly worth waiting for! smiley However, I think it is better if they use lighter body paint on this one, and it is totally a complete package if they also use an impressive engine.

We need to wait for this for too long before we can finally see this one but anyway, I can say that I’m still impressed with the looks and simple detailing that it had but just like them, I don’t think that it had a powerful engine.

I just noticed that all Porsche cars had always the same design and platform most especially their headlights, but they were all kinds of pricey. Anyway, I’m still impressed with the looks of this 550 and with its impressive engine.

Impressive figure performance! I’m impressed with the simplicity of this convertible car, but I don’t like the interior touch that it had. It looks so lousy.

I love the roadster version of the car! The speed performance is great as well. Its a good thing that the heavy roof top of the car doesn’t affect on the speed of the car.

hmm. I don’t think that this car has an impressive power output though its platform look so modern as a successor of a vintage car. Before anything else, I want to know the figure performance of the car?
