The German manufacturer Porsche played the secretive by keeping these 5 prototypes warm, some of which are unusual to say the least.
All car manufacturers imagine prototypes. But if some of them are unveiled with great fanfare in the middle of the Shows to test the public’s reaction, others are not so lucky. They then remain hidden in the shadows, kept secret by the brand at the back of a garage.
Lucky for us, Porsche decided to bring out 5 of these concepts and present them to us in a video. And some of them are very amazing!
We immediately attacked in the 80s with the 984. While this car looks suspiciously like a small 928 from the same era, it doesn’t have a big V8 under its hood. It only develops 135 hp for 880 kg.
Much more imposing, we also discover a study of Cayenne convertible! Hesitant between two designs for the back, the designers simply decided to create the two side by side in order to make the decision easier.. A choice that ultimately did not have to be made since the car was never produced.
We continue with cars without roofs and this Carrera 3.2 Speedster. We immediately recognize the design of a 911 convertible produced between 1973 and 1989. To make it a Speedster, Porsche simply removed the windshield and installed a shell over the entire cabin.
Still in the category of offset convertibles, we discover the Porsche Panamericana. Here are the lines of a 911 Targa that we recognize despite its very special wheel arches. Fun little touch, the roof was fixed with a zipper !
We end with a much more recent car, the first rolling chassis of the 918 Spyder. In this case, we understand why Porsche decided to keep it a secret, let’s say it doesn’t really look “finished”. This is a real Frankenstein. We recognize some elements of body of a 911, at the rear in particular, but that’s about it. On the other hand, all the technology of the future 918 is there, hidden in this first prototype.
