    Porsche 904 Living Legend (2013)

    Status: hard model in scale 1:1

    The basic idea: this study of an especially compact and lightweight sports car is reminiscent of the legendary Porsche 904 from 1963. Under the cover there is a monocoque chassis made of carbon, as used in the VW XL. The Porsche 904 Living Legend, which weighs barely 900 kilograms, could have been powered by a high-revving motorbike engine.

    Porsche Vision 916 (2016)

    Status: clay model in scale 1:1

    The basic idea: a study by one of the design interns at Porsche in 2016, the Porsche Vision 916 has compact dimensions similar to the Porsche 916, which was developed as a prototype in the early 1970s. However, this Little Rebel is driven purely electrically by four wheel hub motors. It pays homage to the car designer Ferdinand Porsche and his first Lohner-Porsche racing car with four-wheel drive from 1900.

    Porsche Vision Spyder (2019)

    Status: hard model in scale 1:1

    The basic idea: puristic, flat and seriously quick, James Dean's "Little Bastard" and the Carrera-Panamericana racing cars of the 1950s inspired this new interpretation of the Porsche 550 Spyder, which also served to further develop the design identity of Porsche's combustion-engined sports cars.

    Stay tuned for the final part in the Porsche Unseen series tomorrow: the concepts of the future.
