The Mother of all Porsches: Typ 52

What would the history of the automobile have looked like if Ferdinand Porsche would have completed his roadgoing monster back in 1933/34? Inspired by Bernd Rosemeyers success on the racetracks with the Auto Union racers, Porsche coined the idea of something "absolutely-oposite-of-the-Volkswagen" - and designed this unbelievable V-16 street legal monster named the Typ 52. The absolute dream-car of any Porsche-VW fanatic.

We can't stop thinking, reading and loving the Steyr Typ 50/55, Mercedes 130H/170H, Adler Typ10 Autobahn, the Tatras and the dreamcars that was all part of the "VW"-movement. Funny thing is - Mr Porsche was related to most of them in one way or the other. Watch this blog for more to come...
