In 1946 Piero Dusio the Italian soccer player, businessman and racing enthusiast commissioned Porsche to engineer a light-alloy bodied, single seater racing car for his Cisitalia brand. Ahead of its time, the 1.5 litre driver-engaged four-wheel drive Typ 360 never made it past test stage, due to financial setbacks.
