Porsche has released a new video which shows a cleverly disguised Boxster prototype.

According to the Porsche Museum's Chief of Archive, Dieter Landenberger, the idea of a mid-engine car was a "big secret" in the early 90's. Since the company didn't want anyone to know that they were working on a mid-engine model, the prototype was equipped with a 911 Targa Turbo body. Despite looking like a 911, the prototype had a modified rear spoiler and a camouflaged rear window which helped to hide the mid-mounted engine.

Porsche eventually introduced the production model in 1996 and it became a huge hit for the company.
