Class Project: Porsche Carma Concept

There's insight to be gained into the future of car design by examining the projects inside the world's institutions of higher automotive learnin'. For example, please to behold the Porsche Carma — a take on how the Stuttgarters might carry their Carrera tropes into the next decade. It's by fourth-year students at France's Institute Supérieur de Design (ISD), under no advisemént from Porsche. The assignment was to create a high-spec supercar for everyday use, and the crew carried out a detailed study of the body and underbody surfaces to achieve the downforce needed to stabilize a 200+mph car without a conspicuous aero kit. Let's how they can still create stuff like this under the soul-crushing weight of a corporate agenda. [via Carscoop]
