1970 Porsche Tapiro Concept

Giugiaro’s 4th prototype at Italdesign was this radical Tapiro. It was based on a Porsche 914/6 chassis and used it’s mid-mounted, 2.4 litre flat-6 engine. Interesting design elements were gullwing doors for both the passengers and engine compartments, as well as a heavily raked windscreen that matched the front hood.
