Cette terreur du désert a été conçu en 1938 par Ferdinand Porsche. Son nom signifie traduit en anglais “Car siège baquet”. Une version civile deviendrait disponible pour le marché américain entre les 1974-1975. When first commissioned to build the vehicle Porsche had a prototype ready in one month. Ce véhicule tout-terrain allait devenir l'Allemagne Jeep.
Testing and development was fast.When the German Army took delivery of the first vehicles they were as the saying goes.. “tested in battle” Due to their lightweight and crisp handling they could out perform the larger vehicles. General Rommel “Le renard du désert” used this as his vehicle of choice. Its flat floor, cool running Air Cooled Moteur and high ground clearance made it almost unstoppable in the desert
In November of 1943 the U.S.Army conducted tests on captured vehicles. A secret document concluded ” That the vehicle was simpler, easier to manufacture and maintain, faster, and more comfortable for four passengers than the U.S. Army’s Jeep” This info was due to obvious reason kept from the US public to well after WWII.
