In 1970 the dream car for Turin Motor Show is intentionally extreme in shapes and technical solutions, but anyway thought for mass- production.

The starting point is the Volkswagen Porsche 914/16, but between this prototype and the production version there isn't the slightest similarity. The formal trend refers to de Tomaso Mangusta more than the Iguana, presented a year before.

Softness and litheness give way to abrupt lines, straight radii and pronounced corners.

The wedge is used here for the first time, and it will be used again in many other cars in years to come. Doors and hoods are very exotic and considered fancy solutions for the time like seagull wing opening door for passengers and engine. This solution imposed the design of a "cross" steel central structure that carries longitudinally the hinges of doors and hoods, while transversally becomes a roll-bar. Lights, foldaway, are protected by a square overhang.

Trivia

Volkswagen Porsche Tapiro was bought by a private collector, but faced a cruel fate: in the 80's this prototype, a unique, was found completely burned after a car accident.

The Porsche Tapiro was designed in 1970 by Giorgetto Giugiaro of ItalDesign. It was Giugiaro’s 4th prototype at Ital and one of his favourite at the time. It was based on the Porsche 914/6 platform and featured a mid mounted 2.4 litre flat 6 cylinder Porsche engine, giving 220 bhp and 7200 rpm. There car had gullwing doors and the profile of the windscreen was almost the same angle as the bonnet. It’s dimensions were 4060 mm long, 1760 mm wide and 1110 mm high.

The notion of an entry-level Porsche roadster — built with some help from Volkswagen — wasn't a horrible idea, but the blocky styling used on the 914 was divisive, to say the least. Giorgetto's solution was simple: take one 914/6, strip it down to the floor pan, and replace the awkward bodywork with a sleek coupe body.

The "folded paper" look may have been commonplace in the 1980s, but a decade prior — when the Tapiro was unveiled at the Turin motor show — the result was rather groundbreaking. Gullwing doors provided access to not only the interior, but also the engine compartment and luggage bay — a subtle nod to the DeTomaso Mangusta which Giugiaro himself styled during his tenure at Ghia.

Unlike many concepts, which are little more than large plaster models, the Tapiro was a fully functioning automobile. After two years of touring the auto show circuit, Italdesign sold the car to a Spanish industrialist. Legend has it the Tapiro served as his daily driver until it was bombed by a group of striking workers. The remains - which were never reassembled — currently rest in Italdesign's corporate museum.
