An Unusual VW Bus-Porsche

28 10 2012

Maybe not the coolest but certainly the most unusual combination of a Porsche and a VW Bus I have seen so far: A Porsche tractor onto which someone has implanted the cabin of a double cabin T2a Volkswagen pick-up truck. The model is a Porsche Super which was built between 1956 and 1963 by Mannesmann, in the former Zeppelin factory at Lake Constance in Germany. It came with a four-cylinder air-cooled diesel engine with 38 hp. We saw this machine parked near the road, almost overgrown by bushes and young trees, when we drove through southern Norway on the way back from the North Cape in 2006.

Pretty amazing – here is another blog post on the same vehicle:
Looks slightly more run down, so might be more up-to-date than our 2006 sighting…
