Over the last seven decades, some of Porsche’s iconic models have disrupted the norm when it comes to road cars. Experts, historians and racing drivers talk about the most “disruptive” models from the company’s history in this documentary titled- Porsche: Decades of Disruption.
Back in the early days, the Porsche 356 showed the world the benefits of lightweight construction. The 550 Spyder use the same philosophy of reduced weight, simple yet functional design with sufficient horsepower.
The Porsche 911 is a legend in itself. The rear-engine concept was a radical approach back in the days and has lived on even today. The 959 came along and shook the supercar world to its core. It was decades ahead of its competition and is regarded as first true supercar.
Then came the Carrera GT which was born out of a motorsports program. Its naturally aspirated V10 engine, carbon fiber construction and a manual gearbox meant it felt like a race car for the road.
It was replaced by the 918 Spyder which brought revolutionary hybrid technology to a limited-edition hypercar. The same hybrid tech developed for the 918 is now available on Porsche latest Panamera Turbo S e-hybrid.
