Even the stitching is gold.
Porsche teases its mysterious Project Gold once again, and this time the company gives us inside – or at least at one of the seats. The clip also confirms our previous suspicions of the vehicle being turbocharged.
The Project Gold's seats feature fine-grained black leather along the bolsters. The centre section is perforated. Gold stitching adds a colourful touch to all the seams, and there's "Turbo" embroidery on the headrest. Matching stripes run down the seatbacks.
Unfortunately, Porsche's latest teaser doesn't show anything else about the Project Gold. The company's original video showed off the body in bare metal, and it looked a whole like the rare 993-generation Porsche 911 Turbo S. However, sketches in that clip suggested that the company might modify the rear end to create a sleeker roofline than the original somewhat rounded shape.

Porsche's second teaser showed off the Project Gold's wheels. The five-spoke design is similar to the ones on the 993-gen Turbo S, but Porsche paints them black for this application. A technician then burns some of the colour away to reveal thin, gold stripes around the rim and centre to add a metallic flourish.
Unfortunately, Porsche is keeping the rest of the details about Project Gold a secret for now. The company doesn't even say when the unique model might debut. We know that the arrival is sometime this year because the impetus for the machine is to celebrate Porsche's 70th anniversary since the 1948 founding.
If Porsche really uses a 993-gen Turbo S to create the Project Gold, then we have to assume that the firm doesn't intend to sell the model to customers because the Turbo S is roughly 20 years old and has a production total of just 345 units.
Porsche fans looking to celebrate the company's big anniversary can look forward to the 911 Speedster. The company's GT division takes the GT3's powertrain and shoves it into an open-roof 911 with a resculpted rear deck. Porsche won't make many of them, with estimates putting the figure at 1,948 units.
