The Porsche 597 Jagdwagen is a hybrid vehicle that combines the familiar aesthetic of a Jeep with a military truck to create a hunting auto designed for tracking trails and animals for sport. The car features a low-ride design with a folding rooftop that is ideal for jetting quickly from place to place while following wild game.

The car takes inspiration from post-World War II vehicles used by the German Army that are designed to fit several people inside while maintaining speed, precision and a lightweight frame. The vehicle offers a powerful engine, a door-free frame and an olive green coloring allowing it to blend seamlessly into forests or wilderness settings for added camouflage. Since the car doesn't have doors or a hardtop roof, it is ideal for hopping in and out of while chasing game.
