Do you love classic and expensive Porsches and/or you’re a fan of the gorgeous Porsche 550 but don’t have $3.685 million to spend? No worries, the French company, Vintech, has created a solution to owning the Porsche 550. Vintech has designed the P550 Tribute; a full carbon fiber body boasting classic lines with a modern chassis and a 3.0-liter four-cylinder boxer engine. The five-speed manual P550 has an engine that is expected to produce between 260 and 270 horsepower and a curb weight of 1,212 pounds.
The P550 Tribute makes its debut this Friday, August 17 at “The Quail: A Motorsports Gathering,” one of the events taking place at the Pebble Beach Concours d’Delegance.
