Porsche has all but officially confirmed that it will build a successor to the incredible Carrera GT. In an interview with Car & Driver, Porsche R&D board member Wolfgang Dürheimer said that he believes such a car will see production. Dürheimer didn’t comment on when that might be but he did say that a new vehicle along those lines would have a completely different technological approach.

With the German automakers focused on the efficiency of their products, it wouldn’t be a stretch to see a CGT successor act as a sort of green supercar, using several different layers of efficient engineering, such as light-weight parts, energy regeneration and turbocharging, to produce maximum performance through minimal consumption.
