As with many classic Porsches , the company’s first turbo street car was a white-knuckle experience. In an era when the line between race cars and road-going supercars was more blurred than ever, Porsche decided to simply build a race car and sanitize it for the road.

The 914, 928, and 944 are due for a reboot.

Even after years of concerted effort to expand its lineup to include crossovers, SUVs, and electric vehicles, Porsche still has a focused portfolio. However, there are still segments it's absent from where it's competitors operate without worry. If Porsche wanted to expand further, it could easily resurrect past models for the modern era.

One that's due for a reboot is the 914, Porsche's Targa-topped, lightweight roadster. While it originally came with either a VW-sourced flat-four or a 911-derived flat-six engine, a new 914 would go electric.

The powertrain would also give it a low center of gravity, making it enjoyable to drive.

Another classic Porsche that'd be ripe for a modern take would be the 928. Porsche's lineup lacks such an offering right now, though one would help it compete against BMW, Mercedes, and Ferrari's front-engine 2+2 models.

It'd be a top-tier offering for the automaker.

The final Porsche that'd be welcomed would be a new 944. However, achieving this would be quite tricky. Both Porsche and VW Group lack a front-engine, rear-wheel-drive platform that'd be suitable to the 944's lightweight roots. A flat-four or flat-six engine would give it a low nose, while composite materials would keep the weight down. While these are ambitious ideas, they're nothing more than fantasy. These are sports cars, which are struggling to find buyers today; however, Porsche's forte are sports cars, and any new offering would likely make its competitors worry.
