Porsche loyalists often cringe at any design that veers too far away from the classic and iconic shape that’s gone largely unchanged over the years. While they’re attitude is “why mess with a good thing?”, designer Dong Hun Han aims to push the limits of the Porsche brand with an all new design direction that feels more different than familiar.
Called Cygnus, this low-slung supercar seems to occupy a larger footprint than the current line of compact roadsters. This wider stance is contrasted by smooth curvatures and a flowing silhouette that’s more demure than other sharp, cutting supercars like Lamborghini. Looking to the future, Han feels that this more subtle sportiness and soft yet powerful aesthetic will be adopted by many brands.
