The Singer 911: All You Ever Wanted to Know [Chris Harris on Cars]
To some people, mainly Porsche people, this is the most desirable car you could own. Its creators are a bunch of zany, brilliant Porsche-files who have invested their lives in re-imagining the classic Porsche 911 shape for the year 2013. We tour the factory, speak to the team and drive it on road and track.
It isn’t widely known that there was a 4×4 Beetle produced in Germany during the second world war, the car was dubbed the “Volkswagen Kommandeurwagen” as it was primarily designed for use by the Wehrmacht.
The Kommandeurwagen was a hodge podge of sorts, it used a KdF-Wagen sedan body, a Kübelwagen chassis and the Schwimmwagen (1st gear only) 4×4 system.
