miguel angel bahri made his porsche motorcycle for a subject named two ‘wheels project’, with the goal of making a pure electric bike concept as close to reality as possible. inspired by the porsche ‘911 turbo’, ‘918’, and ‘919’, he has taken the design DNA from these iconic cars and transplanted it into his concept motorcycle. he names it the ‘618’ as it represents an entry-level, electric, two-wheeled  vehicle for the german-automaker, sitting just below the ‘718’ range.

working with form an function in synergy, he thought of the package as a porsche from the very beginning. inspired by the flat-six-architecture of the ‘911’, he interprets this flat and low-center of gravity concept into the ‘618’s’ exterior form and suspension. featuring a center steering hub concept, this places the batteries at the heart of the bike for enhanced stability and turning. for recharging, the luggage compartment and batteries are accessed via elegant le mans style doors.
