The Porsche C88 concept was developed by Weissach engineers in just four months especially for the Chinese market.

1994 Porsche C88 concept.

In China, 88 is considered a lucky number and so Porsche decided to name the car the C88 and showcase it at the Beijing Auto Show.

The model could be manufactured with simple production methods, while at the same time providing excellent quality and driving safety.

In the end, however, the Chinese authorities did not grant Porsche (or any other foreign manufacturer) permission to produce in China.

Carlos's comments

We're glad to see that this vehicle never saw the light of day. It seems to violate everything that Porsche has ever stood for and is frankly confusing that it was ever considered at all.

Like the Cayenne and Panamera, it would have created some much needed cash flow that would allow further development of Porsche sports cars. Especially considering this was in 1994, a time when the 968 and 928 didn't sell well, and the 911 wasn't exactly flying out of showrooms. Imagine how much sooner we would have seen the Boxster, or 911 development had Porsche had a few hundred million extra laying around.
