Although Porsche never built a bus or a van, Volkswagen’s dark red Porsche Rindienst buses from the 1950s, 1960s and 1970s are inextricably linked with the brand’s sports and racing history. Revive antiquity now. From this month, the eight Dutch Porsche centers and the importer will publish an electric Volkswagen ID. Go wild in the iconic Porsche Rindienst colours. Personal achievement. Buzz connects the track’s rich past with the present in a playful way, specifically in the year that Porsche celebrates its 75th anniversary.
The Porsche 904, 908, 910 and 917 may be the great racing legends from Zuffenhausen, but another car also contributed to the success of the Porsche works team in the 1950s, 60s and 70s: Porsche Renndienst’s VW Transporter. The bus – affectionately called ‘Bulli’ – is known for its large load space, reliability and recognition. They are a work force you can count on and are therefore an indispensable part of the team. If the gearbox or engine needs to be replaced quickly the night before a crucial race, technicians will find the necessary spare parts in the large cargo area. In addition, the Bulli also serves as a temporary hotel for racing team members from time to time, the pick-up version of the T1 is used as a car transporter, and Porsche also uses it as a taxi to drive drivers to and from circuits.
The Porsche Renndienst Bulli was first used by the Porsche factory team during the Mille Miglia race in 1954. Porsche doesn’t have a proper transmission for its racers, so the idea was born to convert the T1 into a transmission for Porsches. Not only do the Renndienst bus variants work, but they also look great with their dark red paint. The portable tool shed for the racing teams features the iconic Porsche design of those years with the Porsche logo and white lettering on the sides.
Whether it’s the Mille Miglia, the Marathon de la Route, the legendary Targa Florio races in Sicily or the 24 Hours of Le Mans: Porsche’s burgundy service cars indirectly contribute to the brand’s many motorsport victories. It’s reliable and efficient thanks to its proven air-cooled four-cylinder boxer engines, which is crucial in a sport where every second counts. In addition, they are very recognizable cars that appeal to Porsche fans and the public. Many of the original Porsche Renndienst buses have survived hundreds of thousands of track-to-track kilometers and are now in the hands of museums and private collections in Europe and the United States. The Porsche Rendienst Bus is a cult; It is no coincidence that there are many converted T1 and T2 Bullis cars these days that have been recreated in detail.
The cult status gained has now been confirmed by the Dutch Porsche Foundation. Each of the eight merchants and the importer takes an identification card. Buzz is in use, and it is inspired by the legendary Volkswagen T1 and T2 trucks from the Porsche Rindienst in terms of its color scheme and lettering. Beneath the skin, Reindienst Reincarnations is identity. Buzz 1st Max passenger versions with a 77 kWh battery pack and a 150 kW / 204 hp electric motor driving the rear wheels. Porsche Centers will issue their identifiers. Buzz Renndienst can be used, among other things, as a shuttle bus, for promotional purposes and at events. You may get ID. Buzz Renndienst’s releases would eventually have the same cult status as the popular Bulli’s.
