There are a few similarities between a Porsche 356 and a Renault Alpine. Both are from a rear-engined Sedan. Their engines are derived from a brave standard engine air-cooled in Porsche and liquid-cooled in Renault, what promises a little more power output. Both started very early successfully in races, carried along the chassis of the sedan for a long time.

However, Porsche has long been developed a follow-up model. The Alpine has a to a central tube modified chassis with a little lighter GRP body and the engine of the stronger TS saloon. The suspension is still the Renault 8. After all, the swing axle has here not so long spring travels and a lot of negative camber, which saves it a positive camber during rebounding. With skillful shifting of all not directly to the drive linked aggregate in the front room is emerged a relatively balanced weight distribution and a good handling.

Compared to the competitor Porsche competitors, the Alpine is however more extreme and lower. Also, Porsche is bound much less to VW than Alpine to Renault. After all, the mother has 30 percent of the shares and attrribute the numerous race wins. However, this care is not enough to reach the same durability as the vehicles of the parent company. This causes that the Renault Alpine remains a little narrow, hard and loud car with especially for the 83 kW (113 hp) of the 1300 incredible performance (vmax = 215 km/h). 10/09
