Porsche Tapiro concept car, 1970.
Since let’s just say forever, pretty girls have been used to sell everything because if anything is true in this world it is that sex can sell absolutely anything.
If you’ve ever been to a car show or even seen images of car shows from the past (or present) then you know that having an attractive girl posing alongside the latest and greatest automobile at these kinds of events is as common as seeing a kid stuffing his face with a hot dog at a baseball game. Sometime in the late 1970s a woman named Margery Krevsky (who was at the time an employee of a large department store in Detroit whose many responsibilities included booking models for fashion shows across the country) got an idea after visiting the famed Detroit Auto Show for the first time.
After visiting the show Krevsky began working on her concept that the glamorous girls standing next to the cars possessed the untapped potential to engage in “shop talk” with potential customers. Krevsky formed her company Productions Plus - The Talent Shop which to date has employed nearly 500 well-versed, attractive “product specialists” (including a fair number of attractive, automobile savvy men) that work with car clients all over the world at shows. The evolution of the car model was detailed in a book by Krevsky from 2008, Sirens of Chrome: The Enduring Allure of Auto Show Models.
Now that I’ve given you your daily Dangerous Minds history lesson, let’s move on to the subject of this post—hot chicks pictured with some of the slickest concept cars from the 60s and 70s. From a 1971 Lamborghini Countach to the 1968 Alfa Romeo Carabo, I’ve got tons of images of crazy looking concept cars and sexy models in various stages of attire such as animal print bikinis and gogo boots that should get your engine running.
