It is official, though unpleasant: CEO Matthias Mueller has announced that there are no plans for a new Porsche 550. Mueller said that any plans for a new version of its vintage Porsche 550 sports car will be slipped back “into the desk” for the present time, which is better than tossing the idea into the trash.

Porsche will not be building a new 550 at this time
The original Porsche 550 was produced in the 1950s. The low-slung sportster debuted with its top off and was instantly embraced by both celebrities and the racing world alike. The bold little sportster effortlessly mixed aggression with glamour, catapulting it to the top of its game during old-world Hollywood.
