THIS FUTURISTIC sports car powered by natural gas can transform into a pickup truck. Based on a Porsche, the 911 Turbo-based Rinspeed Bedouin was created to show how a powerful car can also use renewable energy.

Frank M. Rinderknecht, CEO for Swiss-based manufacturer Rinspeed has been building concept-cars for the Geneva Motor Show for over 20 years. He calls himself “an automotive futurist”, with the Rinspeed Bedouin being just one of his many innovative creations.
He told Truly: “The Bedouin was created to show sustainability, powered by natural CMG gas.” By taking on this project Frank was faced with big challenges to maintain the basic shape of the Porsche.
“We did not want to obstruct the original design, but to compliment it,” he said. “Then we had to fit all the technology in a relatively small amount of space.”//Barcroft Cars
