Airstream, the iconic American travel trailer company, has partnered with Studio F.A. Porsche, the design house founded by Butzi Porsche, to create a futuristic concept trailer. Called the Airstream Studio F.A. Porsche Concept Travel Trailer, it merges Airstream's classic, streamlined design with the sleek, engineered style of Studio F.A. Porsche's products.
Butzi Porsche, the designer of the legendary Porsche 911 and grandson of Porsche's founder Ferdinand Porsche, has lent his expertise to create a trailer that marries style and function.
The resulting concept trailer features a smooth, aerodynamic shape that's characteristic of Airstream trailers, combined with Porsche's signature design elements such as sharp lines, minimalist details, and a sleek silver finish. In addition to its sleek exterior design, the Airstream Studio F.A. Porsche Concept Travel Trailer also boasts some innovative features. One such feature is the insulated pop-up roof, which is a first for Airstream trailers. The pop-up roof design allows for the overall height of the trailer to be lowered, making it possible to park the trailer inside a garage.
This is made possible by combining the lowered suspension with the insulated pop-up roof, which creates a more compact and easily storable trailer. The ability to park the trailer indoors provides more convenience and security for the owner, as well as better protection from the elements. Overall, the Airstream Studio F.A. Porsche Concept Travel Trailer demonstrates how innovation and design can combine to create a trailer that is not only stylish but also functional and practical.
Inside the Airstream Studio F. A. Porsche Concept Travel Trailer, the floor plan has been redesigned with a unique layout. The seating area can be easily converted from an eating area to a sleeping area, measuring a generous 82x61 inches. To showcase this innovative design, a 1/3-scale model of the concept trailer will be on display on March 10 at the SXSW festival in Austin, Texas. This event coincides with the 75th anniversary of Porsche, the sports car brand that owns Studio F.A. Porsche.
