Porsche Is Reportedly Launching a New Car on June 8
June 8, 2023 is a significant date for Porsche: It marks the 75th anniversary of when the very first 356 was certified for the road in 1948.
That's why it's not shocking that, according to a rumor on comedian, commentator, Porsche collector, and friend of R&T Spike Feresten's podcast, Spike's Car Radio, that the automaker is planning to reveal a new product on June 8.
The rumor he heard is from an unnamed source, and it claims that Porsche is planning to unveil a new car that "has not been talked about yet."
Feresten didn't share any additional info, but podcast guest and ultimate Porsche-collector Jerry Seinfeld speculated Porsche could be planning to release a production version of the flat-eight-powered supercar concept it showed back in April. The more likely outcome, Motor1 suggests, is a new 911 trim called the ST.
The ST moniker was used by Porsche in the Seventies to designate its lightest-weight racing cars. In January, Autocar said the rumored 2024 911 ST would follow that same ethos, pairing carbon fiber panels to the 911 GT3's 4.0-liter naturally aspirated flat-six drivetrain. None of this info has been confirmed by Porsche, however, so take it with a grain of salt. We've reached out to a company representative for more info and will update if we hear more.
