1955 Winter Vintage Porsche Motor Skiing (With a Twist) the World’s Most Dangerous Sport

motor-skiing-1

The roots of ‘skijoring’ or motor skiing can be traced back to Bavaria, circa 1955, when a group of Germanic lunatics decided it would be a good idea to use motorbikes, VW Beetles and Porsches to tow themselves around for fun.

Filmed in Bavaria, Germany. The skiers are towed behind cars travelling at great speed.

motor-skiing-2

The concept is simple enough: put a rope on a car or motorcycle, presumably equipped with studded snow tires, then have the driver navigate a race course at speeds up to 100 miles per hour.

motor-skiing-6

motor-skiing-8

Probably not considered the most dangerous sport by today’s standards!

motor-skiing-5

Evidently safety was not as big of a concern back then either. The speeds and proximities to other skiers in this clip are unlike anyone would have attempted.

motor-skiing-3

motor-skiing-7

See the Teutonic madness, featuring Porsche 356s and even a Porsche 550 Spyder, a short but sensationalized video below.

You can spot the Porsche 550 Spyders in the video, and what appears to be Otto Mathe’s famous 4 cam-powered single seat racer, which you can see in person visiting the Prototype Museum in Hamburg.

Probably the Gmund 040, then used by Otto Mathe to tow his ice racer

CATWALK – Designed by Porsche Design Studio – a Luxury Floating Club Dream Boat

“Catwalk” designed by Porsche Design Studio and Johannes Buchner & Michael Gossler
Two party organizers from the city of Regensburg, in southeastern Germany, (in Bavaria, a port at the confluence of the Danube and Regen Rivers) were fed up with hiring old cruise boats with run down interiors for their events.
Now they have designed their own luxury version by converting an old Danube pleasure boat and hiring Porsche Design to help them achieve their dream boat.

Johannes  Buchner and Michael Gossler, decided in 2009 to transform a tour boat
named Danubian ‘Renate II’,  into a luxury floating club lounge. 
 
 

Indeed, from a boat with three decks, the two protagonists have sought the services of the creative team of Porsche Design Studio to develop on more than 900 m², an exclusive design, without compromise, combining the sport, superior elegance and dynamic look, so typical of  the Porsche Design brand.
\
This new concept called ‘Catwalk’ has several dance floors, a restaurant, bar and DJ booth.
For decoration, Porsche has played on light colors, clean lines and functional formats. 
 
The boat is currently docked in Vienna, but its two commissioners want to take ‘Catwalk’ across Europe for a festive trip. Ultimately, their goal is to make ‘Catwalk’ a chain worldwide.
With a dream to have a ‘Catwalk’ …in London, Berlin, Istanbul, St. Tropez, Singapore, Sydney, Ibiza, Hong Kong, Miami and in New York.
