1956 Porsche 1600 Beutler Coupé

In 1948, the Beutler Brothers began construction of special models based on Porsche and Volkswagen frames. This project is a 2+2 based on a Porsche 1600. Like the Porsche, the car is built on a VW platform, but includes Porsche elements such as the brakes and the engine.

The Beutler Brothers presented their models at several Geneva motor shows. The red car seen above was included as part of the ‘100 years of Swiss coachwork’ display at the 2005 Geneva Auto Salon. Ernst Beutler personally used this car until in the Nineties.
