Never-before-seen Porsche 550one 'Lil' Bastard' concept revealed

A one-of-a-kind Porsche concept known as the 550one has been unveiled after more than 12 years out of the public eye. The Porsche 550one was a mid-engined roadster created in 2008 as a modern tribute to the iconic 550 Spyder, a car made famous by Hollywood actor James Dean – who was killed while behind the wheel of his 1955 550 Spyder. Fittingly, the 550one concept also bears the nickname 'Lil' Bastard', a nod to the moniker Dean lovingly bestowed upon his own 550 Spyder.

First shown at the 2019 Tokyo Motor Show, the LF-30 made its way to Melbourne, Australia, for the first time in November 2020 to serve as a guest of honour at the 2020 Melbourne Cup Carnival.
