That would be something like this: https://fastestlaps.com/models/mercedes-benz-g-55-amg

Up until recently when Mk II was introduced: https://fastestlaps.com/models/mercedes-benz-g63-amg

There are other examples. like classic VW Beetle (built overseas long after production stopped in Europe) Mahindra Thar (sold as Mahindra Roxor offroad vehicle in USA) which is basically a Willys CJ Jeep which is the same as it was in 1945 (other than engines of course).

Porsches are brand new cars from one generation to next. Only the base layout stays the same - engine in the back, rear driven wheels, 6 cylinder flat piston arrangement and two round headlights :)

I mean exact this 4 cars are very similar: B6 turbo rear mounted engine, 450 PS, AWD, 300+ top speed.

But, 959 in 1987 was like a spacehip, 993 and 996 turbo S in its time were among the best supercars. And now in 2020 450 PS and AWD is nothing special.
