Eterniti Supercar teased – Porsche 911 Turbo based?

Eterniti Supercar Tease

Eterniti Supercar Teased - with Porsche 911 Turbo underpinnings?

With the debut of its titivated Cayenne – the Eterniti Hemera – at Frankfurt, Eterniti has revealed plans for a ‘High Performance’ car that could go racing.


We’re really not sure what to make of Eterniti Motors. They touted themselves as a new car company, yet all we’ve seen so far is the Gemballa-esque Eterniti Hemera, a titivated and be-jewelled Porsche Cayenne Turbo.

But lurking in the pile of photos Eterniti sent us to mark the début of the Hemera at Frankfurt (we’ll get round to rounding that up[ soon) were a couple of drawings of a generic-looking supercar.

The only mention in the blurb accompanying the new photos was the reference to a ‘High Performance’ car Eterniti plan which “…could form the basis of a racing programme.”

We’re still convinced that if Eterniti were actually planning any sort of ground-up, new car they’d have left too many tracks to hide it, so we must assume their ‘High performance’ car will also be based on a donor car.

We’ve already speculated that Eterniti may re-body the Panamera to deliver a sleeker, perhaps more Italian-looking super-saloon, but the drawing at the top would indicate that’s not in the mix yet.

We also don’t think there are enough donor Carrera GTs left to do a Gemballa on those, so perhaps Eterniti are thinking about doing a custom body and interior based on a Porsche 911 Turbo? Which would make sense.

The 911 is a real Marmite car, with looks only a Porsche nut truly loves. But what it does have is incredible performance and pretty much bullet-proof mechanicals. A flowing, Italian design body with a complete custom interior could be enormously appealing.

Frankly, we don’t have a clue if a 911 Turbo given a complete makeover is in Eterniti’s plans, but we can see the sense.

We’re just not sure Porsche will.
