Prototypes from Porsche
At Porsche, there are some prototypes and studies that have rarely or never been publicly seen before. Captured here in these striking shots are five of those very vehicles.
Starting with the Porsche 984 which dates from 1984-1987, the engineers worked on a prototype for a futuristic vehicle concept: that was a compact, lightweight and aerodynamic roadster. From 1987, a 911 Carrera 3.2 Speedster, a one-seater with no frills that was designed for pure driving pleasure. This prototype with the 911 Carrera body is the predecessor of a highly coveted, 911 Speedster. Forward another couple of years and the 1989 Porsche ‘Panamericana’ was designed for Ferry Porsche and his 80th birthday. One of this vehicle’s design highlights is without doubt its seamless lines. Every line runs smoothly into the next across the entire car. More recently the Cayenne ‘Cabrio’ and the 918 Spyder ‘Rolling Chassis’, which acted as the test mule for the production model, are more typical examples of Porsche prototypes. Photos: © Porsche.
