For the first time Porsche offers a glimpse at its design studies which the carmaker has kept under lock and key.
Today the Delius Klasing publishing house has released a series of articles under the title “Porsche Unseen”. They present spectacular visions of 15 different cars developed from 2005 to 2019.
The design studies (previously unpublished) cover the “Spin-offs“, “Little rebels“, “Hyper cars“ and “What’s next?” segments. Porsche shows the design studies in detail over 328 pages with impressive photos and informative text.
Interested readers can learn the design process, from the very first drawing to the finished model. Selected studies will be also displayed next year in the exhibition in the Porsche Museum.
A closer look at some examples:
The 2017 Porsche 919 Street race car for amateurs was developed on the basis of the Porsche 919 Hybrid Le Mans winner, with the same dimensions and wheelbase. The car has the carbon monocoque structure and powerful 900 HP hybrid drivetrain.
The compact 2019 Porsche Vision Spyder clearly calls to mind the Porsche 550-1500 RS Spyder from 1954. It has an ultra-modern roll bar, a spartan, puristic cockpit, specific radiator grilles over the mid- engine, red graphic elements, fins at the rear.
The 2018 Porsche Vision “Renndienst” is the free interpretation of a family-friendly space concept (a futuristic “space shuttle) for up to 6 persons, with a comfortable and modular travel cabin. The driver sits in a central driver’s seat; the all-electric drive tech is in the underbody.
The book “Porsche Unseen” is now available at retailers (under ISBN #978-3-667-11980-3) and in the Porsche Museum shop.
