Porsche and PUMA are two powerful brands in their own right. So, when the two team up, you know it's bound to create something exciting. And that's precisely what's happening as the companies just announced they would be releasing a limited-edition sneaker line inspired by the Porsche 911 Turbo.

While this is not the first collaboration for the brands, it's one of the most anticipated. The shoes will come in eight styles, each one inspired by a version of the iconic car dating back to the 1970s when it made its debut. You'll see period-specific elements such as particular colors, body lines, and interiors incorporated into two classic PUMA silhouettes: the Future Rider and Speedcat.

For example, the Type 930 3.3 L Future Rider is reminiscent of the original Porsche 911 Turbo, the Porsche 930; it was the fastest production car in Germany when it first hit the market in 1975. The 3.3 L sneaker specifically references the quick 930's 1977 follow-up automobile, which featured a 3.3-liter flat-six engine. Meanwhile, Type 964 Future Rider uses the vintage color of mint green to pay homage to the popular color of the car's era. Plus, the red tag is a subtle reference to the red brake calipers of the Type 964 911 Turbo.

Type 992 brings the sneakers to the modern era as it was inspired by the 911 Turbo that was introduced just this year. The "Type 992" Speedcat shoe used "Night Blue Metallic" to mimic the car's body color, while the stitching takes after those commonly found in motorsports.

Several other styles are available, highlighting the standout details of 911 Turbos throughout the years. All eight Porsche x PUMA "Icons of Fast" sneaker types are available on PUMA's website, Porsche Design's website, and select stores. They retail for $150 each, and only 500 will be made.
