The LED headlights feature a distinctive design that hasn't previously been seen on any Porsche. The term "concept study" suggests that that the model is likely to be some form of forward-looking, brand-shaping design, rather than closely previewing a forthcoming production car.
The suggestion the concept is "future-oriented" means it will almost certainly feature some level of electrification. Porsche has already launched the Taycan luxury saloon as its first EV and is currently working on an electric-only next-generation Macan SUV.
Autocar has also previously reported that Porsche is developing a BMW i4-rivalling electric saloon.
