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]
