A Porsche that can float? Chapter 4 [07:33] looks back at the development of the first Porsche all-terrain vehicle with all-wheel drive. In 1955, Porsche answered the German Bundeswehr’s tender with the Type 597 Jagdwagen. It was a perfect all-terrain vehicle. With a 50-hp flat-four engine, engageable front-wheel drive and tipping the scales at just 870 kilograms, it was all but unstoppable – be it on land or water. Thanks to its tub-like body, in a transport convoy the 597 could also traverse rivers and other bodies of water.
