An amphibious vehicle: in response to an invitation for bids by the Bundeswehr (German armed forces), Porsche begins to explore new terrain in 1953 with its "Jagdwagen" - or "chase car". The Type 597 can move on land and in water, and the driver-actuated all-wheel drive works equally well on pavement and off-road. At the Bundeswehr presentation, it is even used to help free competing bidders that become stuck in the mud.
