At next week's Pebble Beach
event, French automaker Vintech will reveal the P550 Tribute, a new stylistic interpretation of the 1953 Porsche
550 Spyder. The new car will feature a carbon-fiber body, brand new chassis and 3.0-liter flat-four with a "Carrera engine" fan and five-speed transmission. Output is expected at around 260 - 270 horsepower, which coupled with a featherlite 550 kg curb weight should make the 550 Spyder tribute a swift ride.
