The Porsche Carma concept is a creation of four students from the Institute Supérieur de Design in Valenciennes, France. Germain Baillot, Julie Dicks, Pierre Fichet Delavault and Simon Menu designed the Carma concept to be an extreme sports car which could also cope with daily use.

One of the areas the team looked at closely was the aerodynamics of the car. This has resulted in a few surprises under the skin of the Carma including an internal spoiler under the rear end, and at speed the rear panel slides back from the rest of the body a few inches to channel air to the mid-mounted flat-six engine before exiting out the rear creating extra downforce. To further help the Carma hug the road the concept is fitted with underfloor aerodynamics which quite literally suck the car towards the road at speed.

The exterior design of the Porsche Carma borrows a few styling elements from past and present Porsche models. Perhaps the most obvious is the rear end which bares more than a passing resemblance to the 928's rear. The headlight and bonnet layout are similar in proportion to the 911's, as is the sloping roofline.

The Porsche Carma concept is purely a styling and computer modeling exercise. There are no plans to build a working prototype or production model.
