    I ran across this the other day. Remember it from a few years ago and thought it was pretty cool. Curious to see who remembers it and what they remember.

    That rear axle sure doesn't look like a portal axle. Those axletubes appear to be perfectly in line with the wheel hubs..... :dunno:


    Is it some sort of forced-articulation suspension?? Looks like maybe some hydraulic setup with the hoses in pic 2.

    There was one like that Volvo xc70 with C303 portals who did the dakar rally .
    That one had the engine in the middle of the car.
    I never heard how it did in the rally so I guess it didn´t do good :wink1:

    It's a Watts linkage. Keeps the axle centered. Like a panhard rod, but a watts link truly keeps the axle centered instead of pushing it to one side when the suspension cycles.
