Porsche has published a snapshot of a mysterious car with a steering wheel in the middle
The German company has developed a minivan with a landing formula, like the McLaren F1 supercar
Porsche posted an image of an unknown car on its Facebook page, unlike all other models of the brand. The photo was published as part of the #PorscheUnseen campaign, in which the German brand is showing previously classified design projects.
The car looks like a compact city minivan. If you lighten a darkened image, you will see an unusual layout of the cabin with a landing formula "1 + 2". The driver's seat and steering column are located in the middle, while the passenger seats are set slightly further apart on the sides. A similar landing pattern is used, for example, on McLaren's supercars - F1 and Speedtail.
In the picture, you can see an unusual front optics with two-level quad narrow slots, as well as the absence of a radiator grille. From this, we can conclude that the secret car is equipped with a fully electric power unit.
It should be noted that this is not the first minivan in the history of Porsche. So, in the 80s, the Germans developed the B32 model based on the Volkswagen Transporter (T25). The car was equipped with a sports suspension, increased brakes, as well as a gearbox, and a 3.2-liter flat-six engine from the sports car 911 Carrera with a capacity of 231 horsepower.
Porsche B32 could gain “hundred” in about eight seconds, and its top speed was 215 km per hour. The minivan was used as a support car for the Porsche 959 race car at the Paris-Dakar rally. From 1983 to 1985, 15 copies of the B52 were produced.
As for the #PorscheUnseen project, the Germans have already shown images of a speedster with a retro design, as well as a hypercar in the style of endurance racing cars. More details on these secret Porsche developments are expected to come at a later date.
