In 1946, Italian entrepreneur and racing enthusiast Piero Dusio engages the services of Porsche engineering for his new Cisitalia Brand.

1947 Porsche Typ 360 Cisitalia.

This single-seater not only dazzles with its gleaming light-alloy body, but is technically far ahead of its time in many respects.

Power form the 1.5 litre, supercharged twelve-cylinder engine is transmitted via driver-engaged four-wheel drive.

Despite the difficult and often improvised conditions of the post-war era in the small town of Gmünd, deep in the Austrian Alps. the car is completed, but it never makes it beyond the test stage due to financial problems.

In addition to the design of the Typ 360 racing car, the contract package with Dusio includes a two-seater sports car, a compact tractor and a water turbine.

It's the original Ariel Atom

There is a blunt error where it says the car was completed in Gmund: the was built in Turin and transferred in Argentina where two distinct tests were made in 1952 and 1955. I was instrumental in putting together the people to do it, and I have photos that I took myself to prove it. Then before the car got dismantled by a local mecanich I suggested the argentina representatives of Porsche, the Von Dory broters to buy it and send it back to Germany.

Gianni,
The info in this post came directly from Porsche. In fact, it is featured in the Museum. I'd love to post any content or photos you may have.

Your visitors may be interested in the process of completing the second Cisitalia 360 that was recently purchased by a German collector from the Donington Museum. Please contact me and I will supply information

El fabricante de chasis o bastidor del porsche 360 es un don de 81 anos de edad mi vecino. Tambien fue medallista olimpico de ciclismo italiano

Gianni is correct. Porsche was the design firm for this car, and may have even built the prototype, but the car is not a Porsche. It is a Cisitalia, and the confusion stems from Porsche's cynical rewriting of history. It was thanks to this project and others that Piero Dusio ordered from them that Porsche exists today, and Porsche should recognize that fact.

That this is in the Porsche Museum as a Porsche and not as a Cisitalia, which is the correct brand name is shameless.
