Designer Italdesign

The Porsche Tapiro is a 1970 concept car by Porsche, designed by Giugiaro. It had a traditional 1970s wedge design, and was somewhat based off the De Tomaso Mangusta. The chassis is based off the Porsche 914/6, and it features gullwing-style doors.

The car had a longitudinally mounted air-cooled 2.4 liter flat 6 producing 220 HP, and a 4 speed manual transmission.

The car was in 1972 sold to a Spanish industrialist who used it as his daily driver. Eventually, a group of labor activists planted a bomb under the Tapiro. The bomb exploded, burning the car but not destroying the chassis. The burnt shell was repurchased by Italdesign and is now on display in its Giugiaro Museum.

Concept automobiles, and their derivatives if any, are subject to delays or cancellation by the automaker.
