Porsche is a car brand that’s often associated with manufacturing high-performance sports cars, luxurious sedans, and powerful SUVs. However, there was a time wherein the so-called Porsche purists were rocked to the core when the Cayenne SUV was first introduced in 2002. A Porsche SUV was sort of taboo when the Cayenne debuted, and people had mixed reactions to it.
The Cayenne was resilient as it has managed to survive in the global market, and it has been included in Porsche’s model lineup for almost two decades now. While everything is safe and sound, Porsche’s designers and engineers came up with something that could disturb the peace and serenity of the so-called purists.
It sure doesn't look like other minivans in the market today
Say hello to the Porsche Vision Renndienst, an all-electric minivan. Yes, Porsche came up with a minivan that intends to be a “family-friendly space concept for up to six persons.” It is an all-electric minivan that is said to have a futuristic “space shuttle” design.
The design of the Porsche Vision Renndienst is not for everyone. And we have to admit that it looks a bit weird just because it is designed by Porsche, a car brand that’s not stereotyped to be in the van segment. On the other, if you take away the idea that this all-electric minivan is not designed by Porsche, you might be able to appreciate its overall design.
The side profile of the minivan looks sleek
Porsche’s minivan concept comes with a futuristic design that’s characterized by flowing lines. It sure looks like a vehicle that came from the future since it has a different design language as compared to the current minivans in the market today. However, we can’t help but notice that the Porsche Vision Renndienst shares a bit of similarity to a beluga whale, especially when viewed at its front profile. But, when viewed from the side, the said minivan looks like a racing helmet thanks to the design of its windshield and front glass.
The German automaker explained that the Vision Renndienst concept is made to show how Porsche design DNA can be applied or transferred to an unknown vehicle segment for the brand. In this case, Porsche is talking about the minivan segment that includes the likes of the Kia Carnival, Honda Odyssey, Toyota Alphard, among others.
The Porsche Vision Renndienst looks like a minivan from the future
Porsche added that the interior of the minivan concept comes with a modular travel cabin. Moreover, the driver sits in a central driver's seat. However, Porsche didn’t release any interior photos of the Vision Renndienst.
In addition, the said minivan is only a 1:1 scale model that was created in 2018. So yes, the Vision Renndienst is not coming to vehicle production as of this writing. As such, Porsche purists can still enjoy their peace and serenity.
