The Porsche 908-04 concept is an independent proposal for a hybrid
supercar equipped with the latest technology and engineering, but
a styling heritage which goes back to the late 1960s, and in particular
the 1969 Porsche
908 LH "long tail" race car.
The iconic Porsche styling oozes out of the concept from almost every
angle, and the extended tail section gives the car a distinctly competion
appearance, even when it's dressed up in road car clothes.
The Porsche 908-04 has been designed to provide a "back to basics"
feel to the driver. Instead of a sequential gearbox it has been envisaged
as a conventional manual, not because it's better or faster, but because
it's more rewarding and involving to drive.
The concept was developed by a team of six
designers working independently from Porsche. Alan Derosier (Exterior
Designer), Marcos Beltrao (Exterior Modeler / Rendering), Martin Peng
(Component Modeler), Guillermo Mignot (Interior Designer), Hasan Umutlu
(Interior Modeler) and Tom Wheatley (Image Retoucher).
Unlike many concept vehicles, the Porsche 908-4 was designed to work
in the real world, and all the proportions, dimensions and packaging
constraints have been thoroughly worked out to make sure if it ever
did make the leap from 3D model to real-world vehicle, it would drive
as good as it looks.
