A new design of the Porsche Vision 916 is generating enthusiasm on the internet.

What many do not know: The design for the car came from the pen of an intern.

  • The car manufacturer

    Porsche

    has published a draft for a new

    car

    on Instagram

    .

  • This design for the

    car

    is a reinterpretation of the legendary

    Porsche Vision 916

    .

  • However, the design was not created by a chief designer at

    Porsche AG

    - but by an intern.

Stuttgart - As a rule, the latest designs for

cars

in the automotive industry are implemented by highly paid body designers.

At

Porsche

, however, they let the youngsters run instead.

Instead of doing boring student assistant jobs, an intern at the Stuttgart car manufacturer was given the task of designing a reinterpretation of the legendary 916 Porsche.

Porsche design: intern designs homage to a car from the 1970s

The

Porsche

916 was only built eleven times in 1971 and never in series, reports the auto magazine "auto-motor-und-sport.de".

The

car

was then a further development of the Porsche 914/6, but with a stronger engine and more power (190 hp).

The prototype of the Porsche 916 is thus one of the rarest road sports cars ever.

The original Porsche 916 reached a top speed of 233 kilometers per hour and accelerated from zero to 100 in about seven seconds. The few copies of the

car

are said to have

gone

to the

Porsche

and Piëch

families

.

The new design of the Porsche Vision 196 is to be understood as a kind of homage to the 50-year-old sports car.

Intern designs Porsche: the design of the car becomes a hit on Instagram

The

intern's

result is absolutely impressive.

Porsche has

now published

the

design of

the

Porsche

Vision 916

on

Instagram

.

Porsche fans are enthusiastic about the design.

The

trainee

has developed the

design

for the Porsche Vision 196, a model which, although comes sporty and modern, but unmistakably from the original

car

was inspired from the 1970s.

The aerodynamic study shows the Porsche with a purely electric drive via four wheel hub motors *, striking wheel arches and a pointed nose.

The shape of the rear, which is also tapered, is reminiscent of the

Porsche

from the 1970s.

In addition to the surrounding ribbon of windows, it is noticeable that the

car

is missing door handles and rearview mirrors.

Cameras can

not be

seen on the

Porsche

study

either.

The original

design of

the Porsche Vision 196 dates back to 2016. However, it was recently published for the first time by Porsche.

The post on

Instagram

showing

the

intern's

study

now has more than 9,000 likes.

The followers of Porsche Newsroom expressed their enthusiasm for the design, which was published as part of the “Porsche Unseen” project, in many positive comments.

It was called “bombastic” or “great vision”, among other things.

Some fans even went a step further and urged

Porsche

to

actually produce

the

car

.

Porsche does not disclose anything on Instagram about interns who designed the car

According to

Porsche

, the

car

doesn't just

exist

virtually.

Allegedly, the

design of

the

Porsche Vision 916 even made a clay model in the original scale.

Nevertheless: The designs published as part of the “Porsche Unseen” project are pure studies that did not go into series production, as a

Porsche AG

spokeswoman confirmed at the request of bw24.de

model

Porsche 916

Construction year

1971

engine

2.4 liter six-cylinder

power

190 HP (140 KW)

However, nothing is known

about the creator of the

design

himself.

Even

Porsche

was in the post on

Instagram

no information about the interns, the design of the

car

has geschafften.

One thing is certain, however: the internship in

Stuttgart

and his design for the Porsche Vision 196 should have opened one or two doors for him.
