The grandson of Ferdinand Porsche teases the new GTL Coupe model with 540 HP

A company called Feuerbach announced the arrival of a special model based on the Porsche 911, and the teasers were released by Ferdinand Porsche's grandson. Feuerbach was founded by a former Nissan designer in Europe Christopher Reitz in 2019.

He is actually the grandson of Ferdinand Porsche and is dedicated to designing and producing a series of limited-edition hand-built cars that pay tribute to the Porsche family. The first of these models will be the Feuerbach Porsche GTL Coupe based on the Porsche 911 GT3 (997).

Although it will share the same chassis, it will still have a unique carbon body designed by Reitz together with his team in Barcelona. The teasers show that the GTL Coupe will have a particularly striking rear end with unique LED taillights and a distinctive bonnet instead of the standard rear window.

This sports car will also have unique front and rear panels, as well as a bumper with a carbon diffuser.

$550,000, excluding options and taxes.

The German company will use its "magic" when it comes to the drive because instead of the original 3.8-liter 6-cylinder engine, the car will be powered by a hand-built 4.3-liter naturally aspirated engine that will deliver 540 hp.

Feuerbach will also offer more powerful versions of the same engine and will pair it with a 6-speed manual or PDK transmission. Both will be handmade. A teaser has also been published that reveals the interior, where there is a unique carbon transmission tunnel, carbon door panels, and a number of other materials.

Customers will also be able to order a roll cage, sports seats, and belts, as well as brakes, suspension, and racing wheels. The price will be at least $550,000, excluding options and taxes. Ferdinand Porsche (3 September 1875 – 30 January 1951) was an Austrian-born automotive engineer and founder of Porsche AG.

He is best known for creating the first gasoline-electric hybrid vehicle (Lohner-Porsche), the Volkswagen Beetle, the Auto Union racing car, the Mercedes-Benz SS/SSK, several other important developments, and Porsche automobiles.

Porsche was inducted into the International Motorsports Hall of Fame in 1996 and was named the Car Engineer of the Century in 1999.
