Take a Look at Five Forgotten Porsche Prototypes in This Video In this video, Porsche dives deep into its collection to choose the top five lesser-known prototypes from its past. © Motor Trend StaffThe prototypes covered in the video range from early pre-production test mules to one-off design studies and concepts with production intent that never got off the ground. The first pick fits into the latter category. The Porsche 984 was a two-seat roadster that prioritized light weight and superior driving dynamics over power.
