Automakers usually take great pride in unveiling concept cars and while most of them don’t even see the light of production, they make for interesting talking points on what kind of car they could’ve been if they were produced en masse.
Well this happened last week, at the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance when Porsche brought out what can only be described as the evolutionary concept predecessor of the Panamera, the 928 H50 Concept.
While taking a look at the car we come to know that the engine specificaztions are In any case, like other 928s, 1987 Porsche 928 H50 Concept has a V-8 under the hood–not out back like most Porsches. The engine produces 330 HP, slightly more than production 928s of the same year, and could propel the vehicle to 168 MPH.
It must be noted that the 928 H50 Concept bears a striking similarity to the 928s that were produced from 1978 to 1995. The overall profile is similar, including the long, sliding hood that harkens back to the aesthetic profile of the 928. There are some awkward lines in there and the front-rear balance appears to be skewed to the former, but for all of its resemblance to the old 928, the 928 H50 Concept has one thing the other doesn’t have: two extra doors.
People have taken to say that the current Panamera may have been a reincarnation of the 928 H50 Concept. Whatever the case may be, it is pretty interesting to know that Porsche was already working on a four-door saloon 25 years ago. As a matter of fact, the automaker reportedly made two of these models back in 1987, one that carried a hatchback-style rear while others had more of a station wagon look.
Well No official details are present right now regarding the price, interiors, safety and much more, so lets just wait for the time being!
