This Porsche 911 E Rendering Is A Subtle Nod To The Classic 935
We can all agree that 911 is the definitive Porsche model. It’s the car you think about when you hear Porsche. But in times where everyone is heading towards electrification, one has to ask, what the future of the Porsche 911 is. A rendering done by Sandor Boldog gives us a good idea of what might be the future EV equivalent of the Porsche 911.
2021 Porsche Mission R Concept
The Porsche Mission R Concept race car was shown at the 2021 IAA Mobility show, which is currently underway in Munich, (September 7-12). The Mission R provides a taste of things to come, and this concept racer shows us what the future of Porsche customer racers that feature an all-electric drive might look like.
Porsche Won’t Build the Renndienst Minivan Because Sports Cars
Concept cars are tricky to digest. On one hand, they delight the eyes as they preview a carmaker’s (often spectacular) path for the future and on the other, they most often than not leave us disappointed at their lack of fruition. Most concept cars do not get turned into road-going cars. Sadly, that is the case of the Porsche Renndienst minivan. And the reason is simpler than you would imagine.
Porsche 935 MOBY X - Transitioning from Photoshop to Reality
The automotive world is one of the biggest communities. It attracts individuals from all backgrounds and some of them become emissaries for the car culture. Khyzyl Saleem, also known as The_Kyza, is one such individual. A concept artist, automotive designer, and a car lover, he has created some of the most epic car renderings you will ever see. Khyzyl is not the only one who’s doing car renderings, but there is something that sets him apart.
This 1973 Porsche Carrera RS "Obscura" Rendering Is Beyond Ridiculous
We are not saying that here at TopSpeed we have a knack for Porsche or for Khyzyl Saleem. That is easily noticeable from our weekly coverage.
It just so happens that occasionally, we get slapped with a couple of digitally-tweaked images that are so ridiculous that upon closer inspection, they somehow gain awesome status. It’s a must-share situation, really.
This Is a REAL and ONLY Factory-Built Bulletproof Porsche 911
We don’t know about you, but whenever the words ‘bulletproof’ and ‘car’ are joined together, our minds immediately flash nameplates such as the Range Rover, BMW X5, 7 Series, Mercedes-Benz S-Class, you get the point.
Heck, the business of adding ballistic protection to a given car is so lucrative that there are companies that manage to take the vehicle to the extreme – think of Rezvani and their Wrangler-based Tank.
On that note, we never thought Porsche would go this route. However, it did, for a one-time project that involved a 996-gen 911 Carrera.
Porsche 960 Turismo: The Car That Made the Porsche Taycan Possible
The Porsche Taycan is one of the coolest looking four-door coupes out there. It’s sleek, aggressive, and it looks as if Porsche actually wanted to create a four-door supercar. Well, the company’s latest release of previously unseen concept cars confirms that what became the Taycan was first conceived as a four-door supercar. And no, I’m not talking about the Mission E concept. The project is much older than that. Meet the 960 Turismo, the true predecessor of the Taycan.
Porsche Should Build a High-Performance Van Already
Porsche recently unveiled several concept cars that it has kept out of sight over the last 15 years. Among them, there’s the Vision Renndienst, an all-electric van that pays tribute to the old vans that Porsche used as support vehicles for its racing program back in the 1950s and 1960s. They were mainly first-generation Volkswagen Microbus vans, usually painted red and labeled "renndienst," which is German for "racing service." The van concept looks surprisingly hot, and given that Porsche already built something similar in the past, maybe it’s time Stuttgart rolls out a production van. Of the high-performance variety, of course.
The Porsche Vision 920 Is the Street-Legal Le Mans Racer That Could Have Been
Porsche just published "Porsche Unseen," a book that showcases design studies and never-before-seen concept cars from 2005 to 2019. The release unveils a few spectacular designs, including the 919 Street, a road-legal version of the incredible 919 Hybrid race car. But apparently the 919 Street wasn’t Porsche only idea for a streetable hypercar. Porsche also envisioned the Vision 920, a Le Mans racer for the road, also described as its "most extreme vision of a super sports car."
Porsche Almost Revived the Iconic 904 with a V-2 Diesel Engine
Porsche recently unveiled several design studies and concept cars it has created over the past 15 years, and some of them, including the 904 Living Legend, are downright impressive. Created in 2013, the 904 Living Legend is a tribute to the iconic 904 sports car of the 1960s. Design-wise, the 904 Living Legend is a combination between the modern Cayman and the classic 904, but the drivetrain underneath that sleek body is surprising, to say the least.
Porsche Should Be Ashamed Of Not Producing These Unseen Concept Cars
Be it a futuristic design, a pre-production model, or a technological showcase, the concept car is now a major part of the automotive world. Tens of concept vehicles are being released every year and many of them are downright spectacular. But the concept cars we see are just a fraction of the concept vehicles that are being designed or built behind closed doors. If you need proof, Porsche just published "Porsche Unseen," a book that showcases design studies from 2005 to 2019. Three of them have been released online as well, and they’re as spectacular as they get.
Porsche Tinkering with a Minivan Concept is Why the Unseen Campaign is Awesome
Porsche’s “Porsche Unseen” campaign is the gift that keeps on giving. We’ve already seen two teasers of models that never made it to production, and now, the German automaker has dropped the third teaser of what looks to be a concept that goes against everything we thought Porsche stood for. The teaser doesn’t do much in showing the actual car, but a quick edit of the image’s brightness and exposure reveals a car that Porsche describes as a “futuristic vehicle with an autonomous driving mode.” It’s not exactly a pillar of everything that Porsche stands for, is it? There’s more to the teaser, too, specifically what the image editing reveals about its interior. Of all the teasers that Porsche has released for its Porsche Unseen campaign, this one is undoubtedly the most curious of them all.
Porsche Project 411 Concept - A Look to the Porsche 911’s Future?
Big automakers usually employ tremendously skilled designers, but production cars are rarely as exotic as the concept many of these artists create. There are many reasons for that, and most of them have to do with practicality and costs. Independent designers, on the other hand, aren’t limited by regulations like these, so they often produce more extreme and spectacular digital models. The Project 411 by Mossawi Studios is one of them. A tribute to the iconic Porsche 911 Spyder, it could be a glimpse into the 911’s distant future.
This RX Vision - 918 Mashup Is Proof Mazda and Porsche Should Build a Hypercar Together
It’s easy to get yourself lost in the sea of digital renders popping up these days on the interwebs. With artists becoming more and more visible, we’re constantly bombarded with wannabe futuristic vehicles, modern twists brought to classic cars, or simply all-new concoctions that are never going to see daylight in real life.
Now try to guess where this Mazda RX Vision GT3 - Porsche 918 Spyderhodgepodge fits in.
Big-Wing Porsche 935 Looks Ready to Storm Pikes Peak
If This Porsche Cyber 677 Concept Is the Future Porsche 911, We Need a Time Machine
Porsche 911 fans are always given a hard time. Be it because they love a "glorified Beetle" or because "that thing’s been looking the same since the days my grandma was in kindergarten", 911 fans rarely catch a break and it’s all simply because they love a car as anachronic as Stuttgart’s most famous automotive export (sorry Mercedes). But Paul Breshke took it upon himself to change all that and, in doing so, he made the 911 feel novel again. Behold the Porsche Cyber 677 Concept.
Meet Traycan, the Porsche Pickup Truck We Will Never Get
A truck is all that Porsche is missing from its current lineup. Even so, it’s extremely hard to imagine that even in its wildest corporate dreams the carmaker would think of coming to the market with a pickup truck, even in the context where a lot of brands are rushing to jump the e-truck market.
You’ve go Tesla, of course, with the Cybertruck, then there’s Rivian and its R1T, Bollinger B2, and the future all-electric Ford F-150, plus some other equally interesting contraptions. So, where would a
based pickup truck slot in, then?
Porsche’s Newest Concept Is a Spaceship for Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker
Porsche is creating a new concept vehicle, only this time, it’s not the kind of concept that we’re accustomed to. The German automaker is teaming up with Lucasfilm — yes, Lucasfilm — to create a spaceship — yes, a spaceship — for Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker. The intergalactic vehicle isn’t expected to be included in the movie, but it will be created and displayed at the premiere of the new Star Wars movie extravaganza on December 20. The timing of this Porsche-Lucasfilm collaboration could point hints to the possible use of Porsche’s new Taycan — Porsche’s first-ever EV is also slotted for a December world debut — in the design and development of the aforementioned spaceship. It’s a curious thing to say, let alone imagine a Porsche-designed spaceship for the Star Wars universe.
This Intricately-Designed Porsche 988 Vision Rendering Is a Digital Wet Dream You Don’t Want to Wake Up From
I know that the 911 is easily the most recognizable Porsche out there. It is a car so well grafted into our mind that we all know it has an engine positioned at the rear, behind the rear axle. Yet, if you are in a bit more know about the Porsche 911, then it’s no news that all the best Porsche race cars have been mid-engined. Including the latest Porsche 911 RSR who had to go mid-engine to remain competitive in WEC’s LMGTE-PRO race competition. Some other notable examples include Le Mans winners 919 Hybrid and 917K, the 911 GT1, or the magnificent Cayman GT4.
Yet, the enthusiast Internet warriors and everyone who knows a thing or two about cars want Porsche to build a proper mid-engine supercar that could compete with the likes of F8 Tributo and McLaren 720S. Enter the Porsche 988 Vision, a beautiful virtual creation coming from the minds of the designers over at Colorsponge and Invisive. They took the clean styling approach you can recognize from the 918 Spyder and then intertwined it with Taycan influences.
