Studebaker design submitted by Porsche in 52

Recommended Posts

I SAW A PICTURE IN AN OLD Porsche 356 registry of Ferry Porsche delivering a four seater two door coupe to South Bend IN automaker Studebaker in '52. I think the black car was a stretch 356 maybe called the 530. Then another prototype was made, maybe called 540--that didn't look at all like a Porsche. That may have been front-engine.  I think that second one came with Porsche's choice of air or watercooled engines.  Did either of these prototypes survive Studebaker's demise? Was Raymond Loewy involved?

Thanks for any opinions,
