The Porsche 911–Citroen DS Hybrid
A beautiful cross breed is born
The Porsche 911 and the Citroen DS, are arguably recognised as the most beautiful cars of the century. But how does one possibly choose between the two? If only you could have the best of both. Cue the team of developers, designers and engineers from the firm Brandpowder, who have challenged themselves to do just that: created the "perfect car" – the Porsche Citroen 911 DS.
Designing a hybrid wasn't as simple as it sounds: each car is very different in size, weight, specifications and a number of other characteristics. Therefore, the "cut and shut" (a process which literally takes equal halves from each model) failed. The Brandpowder team had to work hard and, despite many difficulties, managed the final machine. When it comes to technicalities, the hybrid takes its engine from the Porsche 911... Deciphering the rest is pure guesswork. But doesn't it look pretty?
