French industrial designer Anthony Colard shared the Porsche 921 Vision as a modern interpretation of the classic 928 built from 1977 to 1995. He created the 921 Vision concept following a job interview at Porsche where the automaker told him his portfolio was lacking of clean and simple designs.
"Designed as a job application for Porsche, this was a very quick project (2 weeks)," explains Colard . "Simple but efficient, the idea is to bring back the 928 model to the current line-up at Porsche. Keeping true to the original four-seater aluminium body design, the car has a slick and simple bodywork without any fancy speed activated wing or things like that. It stays clean and true to its origins."
The French designer further elaborates:
"The front end is very tidy and designed with very few lines, the volumes yet express strength and refinement with precise detailing in the lamps to show the technological quality of the car," says Colard.
"The rear echoes back to the original 928 design with its very specific glasshouse, here now with a floating A-pillar to emphasize the curvature and continuity between windshield and side windows. The tail shows its Porsche DNA by mixing the original 928 recessed lamp design with the new Porsche 991 lamps. The lower valance stays simple, integrating in orderly fashion the number plate and reflectors above a double exhaust diffuser," he added.

You can see an email address for contact but no phone number.
