Concept Cars


The Rinspeed Splash is a concept amphibian vehicle with hydrofoil design capable of 45 knots on water or nearly 200 km/h on land. Propelled by a 750 cc two cylinder turbo-charged engine burning natural gas which supplies 140hp at 7000rpm and weighing just 825kg, this strange looking vehicle can accelerate from 0 to 100km/h in just 5.9 seconds. It premiered at the 2004 Geneva Motor Show, but is not planned for production.


The Bedouin is a sporty concept 4x4 shooting brake based on the Porsche 911, and using a plastic body with a natural gas engine. Its interior is full of Swarovski crystals.

Porsche 929, 939, 949 and 969

The Porsche cars were designed in the 80s and were based on the Porsche 911 and the Porsche 928. Rinspeed claimed that the cars could reach 170MPH and completed the 0-60 in 4.8 seconds.
