Seen: The Porsche 904 Living Legend comes to life

Under the title "Porsche Unseen," Porsche recently anchored previously secret design studies in our consciousness. For rampstyle #22, we then dreamed the affair blithely further and anchored our Unseen favorites in stories and real life for the first time. Here we show you exclusive making-of material of the Porsche 904 Living Legend.
