Several Porsche concept cars that had been kept secret until then are now being revealed, from supercars to vans.
Porsche is now unveiling concept cars that have been kept secret for several years, and there are more than the two that the manufacturer originally announced. These vehicles, in the form of clay models of different scales for some but also “hard” prototypes for others, are the subject of a book entitled “Porsche Unseen“. They were built between 2005 and 2019.
Porsche intends to lift the veil on these vehicles in several stages and three cars appear today to begin with. We can thus discover the 919 Street of 2017, a “road” version of the 919 Hybrid which won the Le Mans 24 Hours three times. Displaying the same dimensions as the race car, the supercar here in clay on a scale of 1 was designed to receive the same hybrid engine with power increased to 900 hp.
A van at Porsche
Among the first concepts presented was also the Porsche Vision Spyder, a speedster with a very modern look that nevertheless pays homage to the 550-1500 RS Spyder of 1954. The angular lines drawn in 2019 allowed Porsche to imagine the evolution of its design for years to come. Some elements of this design could therefore be found on future models.
One of the main surprises of Porsche Unseen, already, is a pickup truck! The 2018 Porsche Vision Renndienst is a six-seat van with a stocky look inspired by the Volkswagen Combi (T1) that served as a support vehicle for Porsche in the 1960s. While waiting to see what happens next, discover these first concepts in our slideshow and video!
