Bugatti Chiron designer Sasha Selipanov offers own take of next-gen Porsche 911

Article by Christian A., on November 14, 2016

A designer of Bugatti Chiron has made his own rendition of the Porsche 911. Sasha Selipanov’s version of Porsche’s legendary sports car may in fact, steal the show of whatever other designers may plan to put on stage.

Over the years, the Porsche 911’s design has remained a classic. The son of founder Ferdinand Porsche originally designed the first Porsche 911. His design came as a more refreshing alternative to the Porsche 356 back in 1959. Fast-forward to today, Selipanov’s vision may have the same influence on the 911’s final outcome. After all, the German designer has penned the highly acclaimed Bugatti Chiron. The rest, as we know, is history.

Selipanov’s concept may be the most exciting Porsche 911 to date. The most notable feature is the headlamps with 4 systematic LEDs embedded along the hood. Selipanov managed to replace the traditional grille, this time with a pair of larger air vents for each side.

Still at the front, we think the distinct nose shape adds more definition to the perfectly sculpted fascia. Otherwise, the rest of the feature remind us more of the Mission E Concept from 2015. A 911 hybrid sounds pretty interesting. But we think we’re going a little too far. Anyhow, Porsche is putting in a lot of their effort to an all-electric sedan. This basically explains why most prototypes have taken their cues from the green car concept.

Going back to Selipanov, the Berlin-based designer pointed out that his concept was to bring back the bodyside that originally came from the first 911. He believes this could be achieved by incorporating softer shoulders instead of the more aggressive outlines. This is probably why he applied the same styling cues from the classic 911 starting from the mirror casings all the way to the rear.

Nevertheless, the Chiron designer has somehow added his own unique touches, including the embedded tail lamps and well-chiselled rear end that seamlessly extends to the roof. The rear diffuser is also embedded along the body. Other than these, the large set of wheels and pair of exhaust tailpipes complement the whole Sasha Selipanov 911 look.

The next generation Porsche 911 is likely on the way. Spy photos have sprouted on the Internet after a supposedly 911 unit was caught being tested in Nurburgring, Germany. However, it’s quite hard to tell the difference between the current version and the test model. After seeing Selipanov’s concept, we think many are already pining for his design. Who knows? You could be looking at the next Porsche 911 already.
