Uncovering the Secrets of Porsche’s Concepts

Porsche 919 Street (2017; 1-1 clay model)

Ingo Scheinhütte, advanced design exterior manager at Porsche, talks Car Design News through the studio’s process when creating design studies

In the midst of the pandemic, Porsche began to peel back the curtain on some of its previously top-secret concept cars and design processes. Dubbed “Porsche: Unseen,” the campaign highlights select show cars, along with commentary from their designers. This year at South by Southwest, a mega-conference aimed at the film, music, and tech industries, Porsche brought a few of its Unseen cars to the heart of Austin, Texas, where thousands of fans and car-curious streamed through a custom-built display to see what could have been.

Among the eye candy, in addition to a full-sized model of the new Vision GT race car was the 551 Vision Spyder, 904 Living Legend, and the 960 Turismo — all of which will be explored in greater depth in upcoming CDN Concept of the Week features.
