In 1988, Porsche produced a two-door called the 969, based upon the bodystyling of the 911. Intended as the successor to the Porsche 930, the car did not get past the prototype stage.

Back to Turbocharging

Porsche intended to create a more powerful, range topping model, based loosely upon the 911. The 969 was to feature a hugely powerful twin-turbocharged engine, and was to pick up where the Porsche 959 left off, using much of the supercar's technology. Styling consisted of circular 959-esque headlamps, with the traditional 911 roofline, finished off with a bespoilered tail end, hiding the intercoolers for the turbochargers.

However, a lack of profits and money to develop the car meant that it, along with the equally ambitious 989, were terminated. The management of Porsche became increasingly tetchy over new projects due to a sudden turn around in profits, and a cease-fire was placed on all projects apart from the Porsche 993.

The sole prototype - which consisted of a modified 911 and a clay styling buck - was destroyed.
