Development of the EA 266 was commissioned to Dr. Ing. h. c. F. Porsche KG in the late 1960s by the then head of Volkswagen, Dr Kurt Lotz. Volkswagen had included a number of requirements in its specifications for this vehicle, determining that it should be sporty, with comfort and driving-safety features, and that it should be both spacious and compact. Eventually, however, in 1972, Volkswagen chose not to launch production of the EA 266, since the EA 337, the Golf, had by then evolved to series maturity. The EA 266 on display - on loan from Autostadt - is one of two specimens of this model still in existence

Interestingly, the car is midengined, rear wheel drive and water cooled, I wonder what the engine looks like, perhaps some early wasserboxer?
