The Porsche Panamericana was a concept car that was presented as a gift to Porsche’s chairman, Ferry Porsche, the son of the legendary Dr. Ferdinand Porsche.
Named after the world’s toughest* rally, the Carrera Panamericana, where the Porsche 356 played a major role in winning race after race, the Panamerica took six months to build. The chassis and powertrain of this car came from the Porsche 964-911 Carrera, while the engine is a 3.6-litre. The entire body was constructed out of carbon fibre at a time when Porsche was experimenting with various polymer based bodies.
What was, however, unique was the roofline design. The roof could come off, along with the rear-windscreen. This car is now displayed at the Porsche Museum.
* this race took place in Mexico during the years 1950-1954 but because of a large number of accidents, the rally was stopped.
