Video: Top 5 concept cars from Porsche

Article by Christian A., on March 21, 2017

For an automotive company that was founded 86 years ago, you would expect that it would have already developed several amazing concept cars throughout those years.

To settle the argument, Porsche decided to feature their top five concept cars in a short video.

1959 Porsche Typ 754 T7 Concept

Let us begin with number five, the 1959 concept they called Typ 754 T7. This one is a combination of vintage and modern as it was a concept inspired by the 911 model. In fact, those who aren’t into cars might not see any differences between the two.

The Typ 754 T7 has a lot of horizontal elements and recognizable details, such as the mudguards with round spotlights, to keep it as close to its ancestor as possible. It has a 2.0 l four-cylinder engine that can yield 130 horsepower.

1989 Porsche 989 Concept

Fourth on the list is the 989 Concept from 1988. It’s the first ever sports car that sits four, and has four doors. It was supposedly an expansion of the company’s Portfolio as they were the first ones who came up with this idea.

However, it didn’t even reach production stage, which was disappointing. Well, that’s not until 21 years later (in 2009) when the first generation Panamera made its debut at the 13th Auto Shanghai International Automobile Show.

2002 Porsche Cayenne Cabriolet Concept

The third comes as a surprise to many, the 2002 Cayenne Cabriolet Concept. It is an SUV that appears to be an unusual hybrid of a Cayenne and Cabriolet. While the company seems to like it, very few people actually agree. Seems like not many are fans of this concept.

2010 Porsche 918 Spyder Concept

Before we get to the final concept, let us talk about the Porsche 918 Spyder Concept from 2010. This model provides driving pleasure with minimal consumption, thanks to the carbon fiber chassis, as well as its 2 electric motors with 218 horsepower.

This super sports car features hybrid and electric drive technology. This concept was produced and launched in the market in 2013.

2015 Porsche Mission E Concept

And finally, at the top is the Porsche Mission E that people loved at the 2015 Frankfurt Motor Show. With a smooth glossy white finish, and an almost seamless exterior design, the Mission E definitely looks like the car of the future. More than its minimalistic exterior that still preserves Porche’s classic look, the designers reveal that this concept is an all-electric sedan.

This is the first car that offers a flawless integration of smartphones and other mobile devices with the car’s system. It is fitted with beautifully exposed instruments in the horizontal panel that displays all the information the driver needs.

The Mission E has four bucket seats to ensure a comfortable ride. In this concept, Porsche combines comfort with style. It also has over 600 horsepower (440 kw). In fact, the brand is already building a new factory in Stuttgart so production can start soon, as the car is due in 2019.
