You know, it's funny.
A lot of major corporations — to be more specific, the automakers — seem to operate like government organizations. They're not particularly nimble, they're slow to react AND there's A LOT of smoke and mirrors.
Auto builders rarely show you what's really under the kimono. It's like sausage factory.
But once and a while you get to see a glimpse of something amazing. Take, for example, Porsche's recent inside look into a vehicle that was developed as a prototype but never was heard of until this week. That would be the 965.
Bodied as a 959 and featuring an Audi V8, it's clear this vehicle never made it past initial testing. Sporting a matte black paint job and some minor camouflage, this car is raw. Equipped with specific instructions and exposed wiring, there's no doubting this was an engineering mule.
Though the clip is relatively short being under two minutes, we're left wondering "what if?"
Is it AWESOME or AWFUL that Porsche built the 965? Should it have pursued a V8-powered 911 or is it better left to be a six-cylinder powered auto?
"Porsche 911" and "V8 engine" - two terms, that most of you wouldn't expect in one car. This particular concept car from the Porsche history reunites these two conflicting ideas.
