The automotive space is one that's consistently being elusive towards the Spies and other members of the media.
There's always a secret, always hidden plans, always a game being played. That's just the nature of the beast.
It's more or less like Hollywood celebrities and the paparazzi. Sometimes they work together, sometimes they're enemies and, for the most part, everyone wins at the end of the day. It's a weird dynamic, what can I say.
Once and a blue moon though, the manufacturers really pull the wool over the Spies' eyes. This is one such example from Porsche.
The company actually produced the Boxster in prototype form then wrapped it in a Porsche 911's (964) skin. While this isn't the first time we've seen things done similar — Jaguar's all-new CX17 has been sporting a mish-mosh of Land Rover Range Rover Evoque parts — it was a pretty masterful job.
One story I heard from an engineer was how the company — that will remain nameless — skinned the chassis of an upcoming product in the trim of an early model year Lexus LS to throw off spy photographers. Needless to say, they didn't worry about getting snapped.
Since you obviously liked last week's unusual Porsche 911, here is another example of a previously unseen prototype. #911secrets
