Tapiro 3

Time for your misbegotten, forgotten concept car of the day: Giugiaro’s Porsche Tapiro.

Tapiro 1

Italdesign did the car for VW in 1970. 914/6-based, it used the 914/6 2.4-liter flat-six, chassis & running gear. There were four gullwings altogether, two for the passenger compartment and two for the rear-mid engine.

TO our eyes, it’s Giugiaro does Bertone. And no, she did not come with the car.

If it really floats your boat, Italdesign’s shots are large enough to use as a desktop background.
