Designer Turns Porsche 928 Into Modern Electric Aweseomeness

No risky business with this retro Porsche concept

  • 1977 Porsche GT reimagined

  • Concept based off of Taycan platform


The Porsche 928 was a stunner when it was first revealed in 1977, even if by modern standards it is hardly the most appreciated Porsche. Or even an appreciated Porsche. It has its fans, though, and one of them has just reimagined the 928 with a look at a fully updated and modernised version of the car.

It’s called the 928 Concept, and it comes from Brazilian designer Guilherme Knop (via Carscoops) with the help of CGI expert João Schendel. Knop took the 928’s long-nose and angular shape and brought it completely up to date in the latest Porsche design language.

A wide rear with a light bar running from side to side with the 928’s rear quarter shoulder sharpened and widened to fit massive modern wheels. From there the car moves forward with the same long roof and long hood design. Now, though, it’s more upright to match modern Porsche styling and meet (in theory) modern regulations.

Carscoops says it’s a fully electric car, and that the designer said he started with the Panamera platform (virtually, of course), before deciding it was too large and going with the Taycan’s underpinnings.

Yes, we said Taycan, and we are aware that there are quad tailpipes. Don’t worry about it, this is a concept done by a designer with no current affiliation with the brand and it looks cool. That’s what matters.

The interior has a seriously retro Porsche steering wheel, but it sits alongside a dashboard panel and second screen that looks much like the Taycan’s. Since this is an electric, the space under the rear hatch should be joined by a front trunk, making this grand tourer even grander for touring.
