Half a Porsche, Twice the Fun!

porsche618_00

The 618 is a two-wheeled twist on the Porsche brand that takes direct inspiration from the 911 turbo. The result is an electric retro-modern power cruiser with a sporty silhouette that essentially looks like half a Porsche sportscar!

Inspired by the flat-six architecture of the 911, the idea was to represent the flat and low center of gravity concept into the suspension and exterior design. The center hub steering concept was key in achieving the right balance between design surfaces and mechanical features. For instance, the heavy visual parts such as the directional components, front and rear arms, and even the spring configurations fall below the middle of the motorcycle.

Additional features include a cool monocoque body with a Le Mans style door (where the tank would be) that opens to reveal a luggage compartment perfectly sized for storing a helmet and gloves, a sleek digital display, fan cooling, and folding footrests.

Designer: Miguel Angel Bahri
