The “Porsche 618” Concept – By Miguel Angel Bahri

Would You Go For A Ride On The Porsche 618 Concept?

Updated August 14, 2018

Ready for another insane concept? This one is called the “Porsche 618” and comes from the brilliant mind of Spanish designer Miguel Angel Bahri as part of his Two Wheels Project – no doubt a part of his design school syllabus. Before you get too excited, we’ll just say that this is not an official Porsche project…but man, we wish it was. Sports car and sports bike industry crossovers are awesome, and happen far too rarely. This one is also an electric concept too, so apologies in advance to our dedicated petrol powered followers… Although, if all electric bikes were designed like this, more people might be more tempted to join the eco-friendly ranks…

Miguel’s brief was short and sweet: to design a purely electric motorcycle, that could exist within the bounds of reality. And this is his answer: a futuristic approach, with key design inspiration from Porsche’s iconic 911 Turbo, as well as a few nods to the 917, 918 and 919 too.

Name the 618, Miguel has designed a bike that would fit into the middleweight power cruiser category; an entry level bike that would hold a careful balance of sports performance and sensibility, whilst representing the spirit and soul of the Porsche brand name. If Porsche ever wanted to battle against the Ducati Diavel, something like this could be their inspiration – however, we are fairly certain that Porsche have no two-wheeled ambitions at the moment….

The bike comes with some awesome features. First off, the futuristic headlight arrangement that looks vaguely similar to the Husqvarna Vitpilen concepts we’ve seen recently is a striking detail. Next, and thanks to the electric nature of the bike, Miguel has designed a spacious luggage compartment that hides underneath the bodywork, which adds to the practicality of the concept. Finally, to give the bike a bit of intrigue, Miguel opted to treat the front end with a center hub steering arrangement. Although more commonly found on the Bimota Tesi, or the Yamaha GTS 1000, we think it fits perfectly with the rest of the bike’s futuristic design aesthetic. It’s a great feature!

The Porsche 618 will also be powered by a hearty electric engine that Miguel says would be capable of producing 120 Kw – which roughly translated, is about 160 hp. Impressive, but will we ever see it in real life? Unlikely. However, the project isn’t over yet, and Miguel is planning on updating the design, and adding an “S” and “RS” model to the line up. We’re looking forward to seeing them! Until then, take a look at the images below for more info!

I’ve done a bit of work here and there in the industry – I’ve even ridden a few bikes for actual money but what it comes down to is this: I ride bikes, build bikes and occasionally crash ‘em too. I like what I like but that certainly doesn’t make my opinion any more valid than yours…
