Porsche 901 concept digitally imagined as a tribute to the legendary 911

Designer Ege Arguden from Istanbul, Turkey created these stunning renders of a Porsche 901 concept during his term at the Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, California to reimagine the iconic 911 model from Stuttgart.

The idea was to reenact the minimalism and compactness of the first generation 911. As a result the 901 concept is only 4300mm long, making it almost 200mm shorter than the current 991 generation and little linger than the original 911 (4290mm).

According to Ege, being shorter it enables the vehicle to have a “nimble, essential look and pure character focused on offering an untamed driving experience.”

The design does remind us Singer Vehicle Design creations, but in a more modern package.

The car has what Ege calls “organic shape” with round headlights and round intakes in the engine lid inspired by the early RSR models. Underneath the taillights are big openings for additional cooling to the engine.

The rear and side look stunning, but the front looks a bit like it is not quite ready.

Obviously Porsche won’t be building anything like this, but there are plenty of small coach builders in the world who could take this idea into limited scale production.
