VW-PORSCHE 916

2-door 2-seater sports car.

Officially, this one doesn't exist! Killed off by Porsche just before launch, it was really a 914/6 with much more power (190bhp of fuel injected 911S flat-six), fatted wheels and tyres, flared wheel arches, a fixed-roof instead of a Targa and up to 145mph top speed. It had everything except ultimate refinement and - in Porsche's eyes - a viable future at the price they needed to charge, so they cancelled it.
