litre flat-six cylinder
The Bertone Karisma which debuted at the 1994 Geneva Motor
Show was an unusual prototype based on a Porsche 911 platform.
The Karisma was a four seat saloon car which featured
two large full-length gullwing doors, one on either side.
The open interior and flat floor of the Karisma was made
possible due to the rear mounted engine and the lack of
a center console or transmission tunnel. The 3.6 litre
flat-six cylinder engine produced 250 horsepower and allowed
for a 150 mph top speed.
Stylewise the Karisma could hardly be described as a pretty
or stylish car. But one thing it did have in abundance
was originality. Rear-engined, gullwing door, four-seat
saloons with plenty of interior space don't come along
