    1989 Porsche Panamericana concept

    This concept had some funky fenders.
     
     
     
     
     
    From the article:
    Porsche chose this name as a reference to the Carrera Panamericana, an endurance race during the early 50s in Mexico. The concept was based on the Carrera 4 but with a carbon fiber body and was capable of reaching 60 mph (96 km/h) in less than six seconds before topping out at 160 mph (257 km/h). This was possible thanks to a six-cylinder engine outputting 247 bhp (184 kW) at 6,100 rpm and 228 Nm (168 lb-ft) at 4,800 rpm with the power being channeled to both axles through a five-speed manual gearbox.

    Note also the Porsche logo within the tire thread! Pretty cool concept, I saw it in real flesh in Stuttgart and when considering it is from 1989, it's quite a fresh and futuristic design language... it nailed the 90s..

    I like this concept very much kiss I would like to see this kind of styling on entry-level model that is rumored to be placed under Boxster/Caman.

    I loved this and remember clearly when it came out. I'm sure I've seen those tail lights since....... #996

    Freaky.

    I don't know why, but it kind of seems like it should be a boat-car or some strange multi-function machine like that.

    Guess its an acquired taste for me...


    Re: 1989 Porsche Panamericana concept

    The indicator lights are epic kiss


    Re: 1989 Porsche Panamericana concept

    Love it!

    Saw it at the Porsche museum some time ago. It has a fantastic retro sci-fi feel to it kiss
