The Porsche 411 is a futuristic hypercar that charges itself while you drive

This spectacular Porsche concept car was designed by a company that specializes in prototypes as a retro-futuristic tribute to the 911.

It’s called the Project 411, and is a self-driving electric car.

But the best part is it’s designed so that you don’t have to stop to recharge the batteries because the car can charge itself while driving.

As more cars go electric, brands are seriously brainstorming easier and faster ways to charge them.

Now the idea is to install inductive charging strips under the roads and use that to power the car.

It’s science fiction at the moment, but we know that when it comes to technology, something that seems impossible today can become the norm tomorrow.

The 411 Porsche concept is a 250-mph car that takes its inspiration from the 911 Spyder as well as the iconic shapes and angles that were popular in the 50s and 60s.

Every element of the car was designed to be as aerodynamically efficient as possible, featuring Venturi tunnels to channel air from the front to the back, generating downforce in the process, an adjustable wing and a wide diffuser at the rear.

The interior is equally mind-blowing, combining modern elements and vintage-inspired components.

The steering wheel and the dashboard are painted white with gold-tone accents, and both are clean and minimalistic.

By contrast, the seats look like they were carved from a single block of carbon and upholstered in white leather with 60s style ‘ribbed’ edges.

The same style was used for the door panels. And the best part? It glows in the dark.

Porsche has said it will try to keep the 911 away from electric power for as long as it can, but at the same time, we know that the next-gen Macan and 718 will be electric.

No one knows what the future holds, but it’s fair to say we’re ready for it if it looks like this.
