Behold the Porsche 911 inspired super yacht

A new range of superyachts has been styled using classic Porsche designs - and only seven will ever be built.
Concept images of the 115-foot (35m) 'GTT 115' Hybrid vessel have been released by Monaco-based yacht builder Dynamiq, which is selling the luxury boats for $13,279,500 (NZ$19.3 million).
And according to Dyanmiq CEO Sergei Dobroserdov, the yacht is designed for people who are downsizing from the 'hassle' of a bigger super-yacht.
'Our target clients might include those who are looking to downsize from larger 50- or 60- metre yachts,' Mr Dobroserdov said.
'They are already accustomed to the highest standards, but are ready to leave behind the hassle and huge costs of owning large vessels so they can enjoy the fun side of yacht ownership.'
A showboat's all-aluminium hull is currently being assembled, with its reveal expected in September at the 2017 Monaco Yacht Show.
Two smaller versions of the handsome craft – a 100 foot (30m) and 85 foot (26m) model – are in development and will be shown later this year.
The yacht's design is a joint effort from boat-building firm Vripack and Studio F.A. Porsche - a design firm responsible for creating Porsche sunglasses, watches and expensive one-off memorabilia.
The aluminium hull and hydrodynamics of the yacht were developed by Vripack while Porsche was tasked with styling the exterior.
Within its Porsche-styled shell the super-yacht has been designed around luxury, with its spacious 7-foot-high (2.5m) ceilings making room for six passengers and six crew.
Buyers can choose between brown or beige leather trim, while the cabin comes with carbon fibre and marble detailing.
Throw pillows in the cabin have been trimmed in the same material as the seats of a Porsche 911R sports car.
Potential owners are able to design their yacht from a huge range of colours, interiors and electronic systems.
The GTT 115 has been designed for a quiet and clean experience, with twin 45-kW generators hidden away in the bow to ensure silence at night and stop fumes or smoke reaching anyone swimming nearby.
The vessel's two MAN diesel engines combine to give an impressive 2,426 kW (12,594 hp) of power that can drive the GTT to a top speed of 21 knots (24 mph/39 kmh).
It can cover 3,400 nautical miles (3,913 mi/6,297 km), according to Dynamiq - enough to cross the Atlantic.
A hybrid setup is also available, which adds two 20.8 kW (28 hp) electric motors that can take the yacht short distances at a speed of 6 knots (7 mph/11 kmh).
Underneath the hull the yacht boasts a made-to-order stabilisation system with four electric fins.
Combined with a unique set of interceptors Dynamiq says the bow is quickly lifted clear of the water on the move and feels rock-solid at speed.
