You knew it in red, now it’s white and transformed into a technological “minivan” with an original architecture: a driver in the front, two passengers on his side, staggered, and a welcoming bench in the extreme rear. Here, for the first time, is the interior of this Porsche concept car, as revealed by Christophorus magazine https://christophorus.porsche.com/
The German carmaker asked in 2018 “what can a Porsche look like where the focus is on the experience of space? Is such a car even compatible with the values of the Porsche brand? Michael Mauer and his team answered these questions in 2018 with an unusual automotive vision: the Porsche Vision “Renndienst”
Porsche explains that “it is a free variant of the family van with room for up to six people. This concept has an ancestor in the history of the Porsche brand: the legendary VW racing service van.
For Michael Mauer, pictured above, it was clear from the outset that such a Porsche should not be conceived and designed as a mere MPV. It had to venture into new territory.
The team therefore designed a futuristic “space shuttle” of exciting proportions, which combines sportiness and travelling comfort in a completely new way, but is still immediately recognisable as a Porsche. Thanks to its bodywork with flared wheel arches and the asymmetrical design of its windows, this concept is unclassifiable.
Inside, passengers will find an extremely comfortable and flexible interior. The driver of the Porsche Vision “Renndienst” sits in a central seat. This location offers a unique, sporty driving experience, while the on-board architecture gives passengers an unobstructed view of the front. The all-electric power train is located in the underbody to save space.
Of course, the Vision Porsche “Renndienst” concept car is only an idea, but such experimental visions are of vital importance to Porsche. They allow us to explore new possibilities and challenge conventional ways of thinking. Welcome to the first Porsche MPV…
