Porsche 597 Jagdwagen

We all know what a Porsche should look like, but this is something definitely different. This unique model is called Porsche 597 Jagdwagen (roughly translating as "hunting car”) a 4×4 developed in 1953 as a prototype for the German Army in World War II, as a vehicle comparable to the Jeep, Land Rover, and the Unimog. The car has the same flat-4 1.6-liter engine that sat in the Porsche 356. They manufactured only 71 of these utility vehicles between 1955 and 1958, and 49 of these were sold to the civilian market. This is one of those, owned by a Japanese guy who has restored it thoroughly. Bonhams will be selling this rare example in pristine condition at the Goodwood Revival on the 10th of September.
