Porsche Files Patent Drawings, is Living Legend With Gullwing Doors Production Bound?

Please, Porsche, build this car

  • Previously secret Porsche concept was shown off last year

  • Patent filings made just this month suggest production intent


A new Porsche patent filing shows that the company is thinking about gullwing doors once again. In the drawings, that look suspiciously close to the Le Mans Living Legend concept car that was built in 2016 but only shown to the public recently, a car that looks like a blend of Alpine and Cayman is getting our imaginations a flutter.

The Living Legend concept was a tribute Porsche 550 couples that were built for racing back int he 1950s. It also gave stylists a chance to try out some new things (that headlight design, among others) that would make it to the current generation of roadgoing Porsches.

The patent drawings, filed with the European Union Intellectual Property Office just this week, were uncovered by members of TaycanEVForum.com (via MotorAuthority). They give us a great look at the vehicle from all sides, including the rear clamshell hood, the wide-spaced center exhaust, space for a pop-up spoiler, and, of course, those doors that cut into the roofline suggesting that they open up or out.

Could this go into production as a stand-alone model? The concept was based on a 718 Cayman GT4, so it’s certainly possible that Porsche could rebody that car to create this masterpiece. Porsche is already well established for offering big-dollar limited-volume specials like the Speedster versions of its cars, and we can’t imagine many Porsche collectors wouldn’t want to have this one sitting alongside the rest of their fleet.
