On screen: 15 Porsches never released!

This morning it seemed that Porsche wanted to keep a few things under wraps, but few things in the world are as powerful as the internet. Porsche initially highlighted three of the fifteen concept cars that the brand is showing in the exhibition: the Vision Renndienst, 919 Street and Vision Spyder. These three study models are each unique in their own way. However, the other thirteen projects of Porsche are at least the same. They are not all equally secret, because some of the models have already been shown publicly.

Porsche 911 Vision Safari (2012)

Porsche has apparently been playing with the idea of ​​a reincarnation of the 911 Safari since 2012, which originally saw the light of day in 1978. The Vision Safari is a raised 991 with extra underbody protection, larger air intakes in the front bumper, extra lighting and a roll cage. The spoiler on the back is also not visible on any other 991. Incidentally, this prototype is really capable of driving, it is as yet unknown which variant of the six-cylinder boxer is in the back. Recently, a raised prototype of the 992 was caught at the Nürburgring. Would that production Safari come after all?

Porsche Macan Safari (2013)

As far as the Safari variants are concerned, it did not stop with the 911. The Macan Safari appeared a year before the Macan was first launched on the market. Porsche did not make half the effort, because the Macan Safari has three instead of five doors and seems to have been slightly shortened. Large plastic fenders provide more protection for tougher off-road work, while the roll cage in the back protects the occupants in the event of a crash. Unfortunately, the Macan Safari will never be able to show its true potential, because it is not a driving prototype.

Porsche 906 Living Legend (2005)

The 906 Living Legend pays tribute to the Porsche 906 that won the 1966 Targa Florio, a famous and infamous street race in Sicily. With squinted eyes, the shape of the original 906 can be seen in the study model, especially when it comes to the shape of the headlights, but Porsche has not lingered too much in the past. With this study model, the Stuttgart brand reportedly wanted to try out a number of things for a new super sports car. With a little imagination, the silhouette of the 906 Living Legend can be seen in the 918 Spyder.

Porsche 904 Living Legend (2013)

‘Living Legend’ is a recurring theme at this Porsche exhibition. Because Porsche also made a reincarnation of the 904 Carrera GTS from the 1960s. The designers outlined the Living Legend according to Motor1.com based on the chassis of the Volkswagen XL1. The 904 Living Legend doesn’t drive, but under the hood should have been a 1.2-liter V2 from the Ducati 1199 Superleggera. This block produced 200 hp and screamed until the red line was only reached at 12,000 rpm. It is a pity that Porsche never considered production of this.

Porsche Vision 918 RS (2019)

After the Porsche 919 Street from 2017, Porsche continued to play with the idea of ​​a return to the 24 Hours of Le Mans. The Vision 918 RS is in fact a fully developed 918 Spyder that is ready for the track. Technical details are unknown, but this study model shows what a Porsche in the new Le Mans Hypercar class could look like. The Vision 918 RS is still relatively young, so that idea does not have to be completely written off.

Porsche Vision 920 (2019)

A further development of the Vision 918 RS is the Vision 920, a hypercar that looks even more extreme with its central cockpit and aerodynamic design. Porsche could probably compete with the latest generation of hypercars such as the Aston Martin Valkyrie and Mercedes-AMG Project One with the Vision 920. Time will tell whether Porsche will do such a thing. But the Vision 918 RS and the Vision 920 certainly offer good hope.

Porsche Vision E (2019)

When it comes to electric racing, Porsche is fully competing in Formula E with the 99X Electric. What such a race EV could look like to customers, the Porsche designers have tried to capture in the Vision E. In fact, it is a Formula E car with a fixed glass hood, which would therefore also be hidden under the skin. must have the same technology. A future all-electric Porsche customer cup? It could just be.

Porsche Vision 916 (2016)

In 2016 Porsche was working on a fully electric sports car: the Vision 916. The name is a reference to the Porsche 916 from 1972, which was essentially a 914 with a 911 engine in the rear. However, it never saw the light of day and the same applies to the Vision 916. The clay model has a design that is unlike any other modern Porsche. The plan was reportedly to run the propulsion via four electric motors. The Vision 916 may never have seen the light of day, but that does not mean that Porsche is not now quietly working on a fully electric sports car.

Porsche Le Mans Living Legend (2016)

The Le Mans Living Legend was designed to honor the Porsche 550 Coupé, which was a lot less well-known than the 550 Spyder. The prototype, borrowing several styling cues from the 911, is a full-size clay model. It contains several references to the past, such as a split rear window and the fuel cap in the center of the hood. The rear lights are more in line with the current Porsche design language. Actually, the brand had in mind to insert a V8 mid-engine. Unfortunately, it shouldn’t have been.

Porsche Boxster Bergspyder (2015)

The Boxster Bergspyder is not completely ‘unseen’, because this special version of the Boxster has already been presented to the public by Porsche and has performed at the Goodwood Festival of Speed. However, that doesn’t make it any less special. The Bergspyder is a reincarnation of the Porsche 909, to which the green accents clearly refer. The engine from the Cayman GT4 is located in the back, so fun is guaranteed!

Porsche 960 Vision Turismo (2016)

The 960 Vision Turismo is essentially a four-door 911. The study model is not, like the Panamera, focused on comfort, but really on sportiness. Ultimately it did not come from such a sports sedan on petrol, but the 960 Vision Turismo can clearly be linked to the Taycan, especially when it comes to the silhouette. In that sense, this study model has been quite useful in retrospect.

Porsche 917 Living Legend (2019)

This modern reincarnation of the 917 has also been presented to the public before. The high hips of the 917 Living Legend, which flow seamlessly into the rear spoiler, are the most obvious reference to the design of the original 917. The red and white livery is inspired by the 917 that won the 1970 Le Mans 24 Hours. Of course, the 917 Living Legend does not drive, but it is a nice tribute to Porsche’s rich motorsport history.
