Before the Porsche Boxster was launched, two lightweight driver focused convertible sports cars were developed by Porsche in the form of the 984 Concept and the 968 Roadster Concept. The two models are set to take part in the special ‘Project: Top Secret’ display at the company’s museum.

The Porsche 984 Concept was considered for production and developed from 1984 to 1987. Powering the car was a 2.0-litre turbocharged engine delivering just under 150 hp combined with an overall weight of 880 kg. As for the 968 Roadster, it was a modified variant of the 968 Convertible.

In the ‘Project: Top Secret’ exhibition, there will be 14 special Porsche concept cars and prototypes with another cool car being the Porsche 924 capable of a 280 km/h top speed despite having just 250 hp beneath the skin.

Other cool cars set to be displayed include the Concept Car Type 965 which was commissioned by the Federal Ministry of Research and Technology in 1978 and 1979. Arguably the highlight is the Porsche 959 C29 aerodynamic study.
