Electric Bus and Retro Sports Car: New Porsche Models Surprise With Design

Porsche has shown several new models that will not appear on public roads.

In the framework of the “Porsche Unseen” campaign, the German brand has showed design projects created between 2005 and 2019. One of them is the Porsche Vision Renndienst. The concept was built in 2018. Its production was not in Porsche’s plans.

The design of the MPV is inspired by a space shuttle with “spectacular proportions”. All elements of the transmission were hidden underbody. This made it possible to create a spacious, comfortable interior for six people. Even those who do not like minivans must admit that the one-piece Vision Renndienst fits perfectly into the manufacturer's line-up and looks great.

Another impressive discovery was the modern interpretation of the 1953 Porsche 550 RS Spyder, namely the Vision Spyder. The connection with the historical model is indicated by the shape of the windshield, the characteristic ventilation grille above the engine compartment, the laconic interior and even the license plate “Little Rebel”, alluding to James Dean’s Porsche 550 Spyder with the inscription “Little Bastard”.

Modern elements are also present in the design of the concept, for example rectangular headlights instead of round ones. Also, the retro car got bronze-copper wheels with a central nut and a specially designed safety arch.

Another noteworthy concept is the Porsche 919 Street, a full-size clay model of the Le Mans 919 Hybrid hypercar. It was assumed that the serial modification would inherit a carbon fiber monocoque, a wheelbase and proportions from the racing LMP1. The same was true for a 900-hp hybrid powertrain.

Externally, the road Porsche 919 resembles LMP1 racing cars. It has a rounded windshield, a “fin” on the roof, massive wheel arches, unique wheels, gull wing doors, and characteristic headlights. Its rear diffuser is one of the largest ever installed on a road car.

The company promises that the brand’s museum in Stuttgart will have a “metal” Porsche 919 in 2021.
